Apple deems Pepe ‘objectionable’ and bans the frog from its App Store


Pepe the Frog is an amphibia non grata at the Apple App Store, according to a rejection letter sent to a developer. The letter, which the developer posted to r/The_Donald subreddit (because of course he did), argues that Pepe is “considered objectionable content” and is therefore banned from appearing in any app in the Apple ecosystem. “My friend and I came up with the idea of combining shitposting with autistic screeching, so we made this just for fun, ” wrote the developer, who seems nice and not at all like the sort of person who would make fun of the disabled for entertainment. The game itself appears to be a run of the mill Flappy Bird ripoff but with more intentional yelling. And while it has been banished from the App Store, the game is still available on Google Play.
