Game Developers Create Angry Trayvon App
Via Atlanta Daily World:
If you find George Zimmerman’s defense team’s framing of 17-year-old Trayvon Martin as a violent, kush-smoking teen who caused his own untimely death repulsive, then prepare yourself for the ‘Angry Trayvon’ app.
Available in the Google play store, and for Apple operating systems and Android devices, the app is described as follows:
Trayvon is angry and nobody can stop him from completing his world tour of revenge on the bad guys who terrorize cities everyday.
Use a variety of weapons to demolish Trayvon’s attackers in various cities around the world.
As you complete a level, you will notice more bad guys coming at Trayvon at a faster pace and a deadlier attack.
If you like to attack from far, then purchase the ‘dagger’ as you will be able to throw it at your enemies for the kill.
If you want to dominate the leaderboards across the world, then make sure you collect the money that the bad guys will drop once you kill them to increase your score.
A Change.org petition demanded the removal of the game from Google Play; complaint tweets were posted on Twitter, as well. The following message was posted to the “Angry Trayvon” Facebook page:
The people spoke out therefore this game was removed from the app stores. Sorry for the inconvenience as this was just an action game for entertainment. This was by no means a racist game. Nonetheless, it was removed as will this page and anything associated with the game will be removed.
These are truly sad times we live in where a teen’s murder has become something to make fun of and profit from. Just sick!
