Apple recently banned a Cecil the Lion inspired theme game from their appstore for a rather dubious reason that gets us all questioning Apple’s stance on trophy hunting.
The game Cecil’s Revenge features a cartoon theme with animals on a jeep shooting at poachers, trophy hunters and old timey colonists with guns. A game that we would all enjoy as we desire to avenge Cecil the Lion. The developers have partnered with Air Shephers with hopes to support their UAV program which would’ve supported them greatly had apple not shut this app down.
In their rejection message, Apple stated that “Specifically, your app targets poachers. We encourage you to review your app concept and revise it to avoid targeting any groups or individuals.”
A rather disappointing move on happy as they show their true colours of supporting shareholders who go trophy hunting.
