Someone argued that the simulation was not real.for example,issues such as racism and homosexuality which are commen in real prison were absent.and a two week sentence wouldnt happen in real life.
So we can say the study lacks ecoclogical validity or we should say experimental validity??

It's not actually an experiment at all. There was no manipulation of variables or a control.
