Forza Horizon 5 is the latest casual street racing simulator from Playground Games. The game is set in a fictionalized open-world Mexico and is a visual treat for fans. There are a ton of events available in the game, and players have the option to customize their cars to the fullest.

However, a Forza Horizon 5 player was recently handed an 8,000-year ban by the studio. The direct ban, seemingly spurred on by the choice of livery, was given to the player without any prior warning.

What exactly landed the Forza Horizon 5 player in hot water?

Multiple components of the livery might have annoyed the developers of Forza Horizon 5 and the management of Playground Games. The livery on his vehicle, which was apparently made by one of his friends, featured a picture of North Korean dictator Kim Jong-Un alongside the banner of food conglomerate KFC.

Further, the livery of the vehicle even included a hashtag reading “Send Nukes,” the logo of New Balance changed to “Nuke Balance," and the Nike banner changed to "Nuke".

A creator in #ForzaHorizon5 has been banned for 8000 years for this livery. Parody aside, I agree this isn't suitable in Forza. Now if only they got rid of leaderboard cheaters too...

Users worldwide reacted hilariously to this post, with their digs primarily directed towards the time period for which the player got banned from Forza Horizon 5. Players are advised not to make liveries or customizations like this, as it might irk the studio, resulting in similar bans.
