Google Removes Homophobic Game From App Store

Google has come under fire this week as a frankly horrific game called ‘Ass Hunters’ became available on their app store.

‘Ass Hunters’, though being several years old, became available to download from the Google App Store but removed today following an internet petition, but not before the game was downloaded more than a staggering 10,000 times and received more than 200 five star ratings.

In the game the player takes control of a hunter with a shotgun who must make his way through locations filled with naked men. When the naked men catch the hunter, however, he is raped by them. The game was described on the Google App Store as;

‘Play and do not be gay! Legendary game where you are a hunter and your mission is to kill gaysas much as you can or escape between them to the next level. Gays may be hidden in bushes and unexpectedlycatch you. Remember when they catch you they WILL do with you whatever they want.’

A Google spokesman has confirmed that the App is no longer available on Google Play. He made no comment as to how the game became available on the site or who put it forward as a product that they wished to offer their consumers. No apology has yet been issued to those effected by the game and Google’s decision to promote it through their services.
