Trayvon Martin Revenge Game Pulled from Google Play

July 9, 2013 -

An Android game featuring murdered Florida teen Trayvon Martin on a "revenge tour" has been pulled from the Google Play store, according to a report in Salon. The "Angry Trayvon" game, which developer Trade Digital said has been available since earlier this year, was pulled after the community expressed outrage on Twitter, Facebook, and via a Change.org petition asking Google to yank the game from its Google Play Store.

A search for the game's product page via the web returns a "not found" search error, as of this writing, but some claim they are still able to find it.

The paid app lets players take control of Trayvon as he uses a dagger, a baseball bat and other weapons against "bad guys" in various locales like Brooklyn, New York.

The outrage is due in part to the ongoing trial of George Zimmerman in Florida, who is being accused of murdering the teen. Attorneys for Zimmerman claim that the shooting was in "self defense."

Re: Trayvon Martin Revenge Game Pulled from Google Play

You cannot deny the power of race baiters like Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson. Though Jackson has been on the side lines for years even losing his title as Emperor of All Black People when Fox News caught him saying he wants to cut Obama's dick off because he was mad some young up start was going to be the black Messiah.

Back to the subject at hand many companies fear Sharpton and Jackson so I don't blame Google for doing this. The only time companies and fellow Leftists ignored 'racist' claims was when Sharpton and Jackson went after companies and people who wished to fire Michael Vicks. At that point Leftists had to choose what is more important their dogs or black people's feelings....they choose the dogs.

Remember Sharpton also has a show now on the Liberal News Network MSNBC so he would have a larger platform to attack Google if needed.

They just never learn...

How many people would've known about this app prior to it's removal and the subsequent publication in various media outlets of it's removal?

Considering this is the Android platform, the developer (or someone else) could easily make it available as an APK and effectively near-anyone with the majority of Android devices could download it and install it - completely bypassing the Play Store removal.

Streisand Effect in progress.

That's not important.  What's important is that these censoring schmucks can pat themselves on the back for "accomplishing" something.

Re: Trayvon Martin Revenge Game Pulled from Google Play

Thank goodness that game was removed, before any more people were forced to play it!

...What's that?  You say nobody was ever forced to play it?  Well then WTF?  Get a life, people, and go find something real to gripe about.
