Lions Guard Larry Warford Says He Stopped Playing ‘Pokemon GO’ Because of Its Mind Control Over People

Detroit Lions v Oakland Raiders

Pokemon GO has been the craze that has swept the nation for weeks now and it’s showing no signs of stopping. People have walked onto freeways, gotten robbed, and found dead bodies all while playing Pokemon GO.

One person who doesn’t want that type of mind control over him is Detroit Lions guard Larry Warford, who says he deleted the game after watching so many people staring down at their phones looking like zombies while playing the popular game.

Via an interview with Carlos Monarrez with the Detroit Free Press:

“I’ll tell you why I stopped playing it,” he said Monday. “I was walking down Mill Avenue in Tempe, Ariz., pretty much on (Arizona State’s) campus. … I was walking down and literally everyone that was on their cell phone walking down that same street was playing Pokemon Go. I was looking at their screens and it was about 30, 40 people walking down Mill (Avenue).

“It was a bunch of people playing it and I was like, ‘I don’t like this.’ I deleted it because I was like, ‘This is some mind-control stuff.’ I don’t like it.”

Over 75 million people have downloaded Pokemon GO and the number is steadily climbing everyday.
