Sometimes an app crosses that line between crude and ban-worthy. But how controversial does it have be to get pulled from an app store? From the racist to downright dangerous, here are 10 apps that got the axe.
This app was yanked from Apple’s French App Store after the French anti-racism organization SOS Racisme threatened to sue Apple. The app allowed users to search a database of celebrities and other high-profile individuals to determine if they were Jewish or not. SOS Racisme argued that the app violated French privacy laws that prevent a person’s personal information, including their religion, from being collected without their consent. The app is, however, still available in the U.S. App Store.
