The following text is the mission script for the mission Cannon Fodder in Grand Theft Auto: Vice City.

Haitian/Cuban-American Discrimination Controversy

The third version of GTA Vice City had all references to the Cuban and Haitian people removed, (along with a number of other trademarks), in response to Cuban and Haitian groups in the United States, who threatened to use action against Rockstar Games, on the basis that they were being discriminated against. A Haitian organization in the US against racial opression was highly offended by the comments used in the game, such as when Tommy Vercetti is ordered by Ricardo Diaz to "shoot the Haitian dickheads". Because of this, the words 'Haitian', 'Haitians', 'Cuban' and 'Cubans' was taken out of the game's subtitles and spoken dialogue and they were simply referred to as 'Gangsters' or 'Mobsters'. Both the original and altered scripts are presented below.

Mission Script

Original Version

Tommy Vercetti: Un cafecito, por favor, Alberto.

Alberto Robina: No problema, Tommy.

(Umberto Robina shows up, tense and shaken.)

Umberto Robina: Papi! Una grande problema!

Alberto Robina: Umberto, my son. What happened?

Umberto Robina: The Haitians! I hate these Haitians! They mess with me for the last time! These Hai - these Haitians! We take 'em out! Only we need some backup. I lost a few hermanos already out there. Amigo, you drive good!

Tommy Vercetti: What's your problem?

Umberto Robina: We take 'em out! Only we need some backup. I lost a few hermanos already out there. Amigo, you drive good!

Tommy Vercetti: For a woman. Right?

Umberto Robina: This is no time for joking! Come on, drive for me again! Take my boys over there, and then we'll take these Haitians down! They mess with me! They mess with the biggest boy in town!

(Tommy leaves Café Robina and finds a four-door vehicle, picking up three Cubans.)

Cuban: We gonna fight like men.

(If Tommy drives a two door car into the pink halo)

Cuban:"Not enough room, man, you need a bigger car."

(Tommy Vercetti and the three Cubans arrive outside the Haitian drugs factory)

Rico: Hey amigo! Good to see you could make it! Stinking nest of Haitians, we gonna kill 'em all! CHAAAAAARGE!

(Tommy Vercetti, Rico and the Cubans reach the entrance of the drugs factory.)

Rico: Now, my brothers, CHAAARRRGGEE!!

(Three Cubans charge inside the factory walls and are shot dead by a sniper.)

Rico: Sniper on the roof! They fight like girls! Take cover!

(Rico pulls out his phone.)

Rico: We need reinforcements from the café!

(The reinforcements arrive.)

Rico: Take out that cowardly sniper.

(Tommy Vercetti kills the sniper and the guards.)

Rico: Fight like men with huge cojones!

(Tommy Vercetti, Rico and the Cubans storm the drugs factory, killing all the Haitians insight.)

Rico: Tommy, we have proved our manful bravery. Let us steal this van filled with drugs and make good our escape!
