Her lawyer Michael Avenatti said "Yes" on the Today show Tuesday when questioned whether the affair had happened.

In another review of over 1,000 studies, the American Academy of Pediatrics, the American Psychological Association, and the American Medical Association all declared in the summary of their findings that evidence points "overwhelmingly to a causal connection between media violence and aggressive behavior in some children". According to reports, some of the attendees proposed if there was a way to make selling violent video games more hard for children - which would regulate their exposure to such titles.

The clips chosen show a myriad of violence being perpetrated against humans in video games, like the X-ray clips of people being shot from the game Sniper Elite 4 or the airport shooting scene from Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 known as "No Russian", which with no context seems like a glorification of mass shootings when in fact it's the opposite.
