Twitter Outrage Forces Apple to Remove App from iTunes Store [VIDEO]

An online Twitter campaign was able to force Apple to remove an offensive app called ‘Plastic Surgery & Plastic Doctor & Plastic Hospital Office for Barbie Version’ from the iTunes store. In the app, aimed at young girls, one performs plastic surgery on a fat girl because apparently diet and exercise won’t help her.

They actually say, “This unfortunate girl has so much extra weight that no diet can help her,” the app’s description read. “In our clinic she can go through a surgery called liposuction that will make her slim and beautiful. We’ll need to make small cuts on problem areas and suck out the extra fat. Will you operate her, doctor?”

I am outraged. This app is so blatantly wrong on so many different levels! What are we trying to teach young women and girls?

The app was live for eight days. I honestly can’t believe it lasted that long. It’s too bad a ton of people downloaded it before it was removed.
