Apple Rejects iPhone Game Because Pepe

Via Breitbart:

Build The Wall: The Game, an iPhone game created by pro-Trump internet personality Baked Alaska, has been rejected from the Apple App Store for including a cameo by Pepe the Frog. “I had a free game coming out on iOS today for y’all, but Apple has banned it’s release due to a cartoon picture of Pepe The Frog #FreePepe,” announced Alaska (real name Timothy Treadstone) on Twitter along with a screenshot of the game and Apple’s response on Wednesday.

“Your app includes content that many users would find objectionable and offensive,” claimed Apple in their rejection letter of the game, which is currently available for free on the Google Play store. “Specifically, your app includes Pepe the Frog character.”

“It’s just a fun little game where you are building a wall to keep out illegal immigrants, and as the illegal immigrants climb over the wall there’s a timer, and if you run out of time you’re out” explained Treadstone in an interview with Breitbart Tech. “Your quest is to build the highest wall.”

The game also allegedly includes Trump Steaks (which attract bald eagles to swoop down and carry the illegal immigrants away) and an array of Trump-supporting personalities such as Mike Cernovich, Alex Jones, and Treadstone himself, as well as various different memes including Pepe the Frog and Harambe.

Last month the Anti-Defamation League added Pepe to its list of hate symbols. Already on the list: swastikas and burning crosses.
