Google removed the controversial Bomb Gaza game from its Play Store on Monday after a barrage of negative reviews and outraged comments on social media, NBC News reported.
“We remove apps from Google Play that violate our policies,” a Google spokesperson told NBC News. Google Play’s policies prohibit “depictions of gratuitous violence” and “content advocating against groups of people based on their race or ethnic origin, religion”.
People took to Twitter to express outrage against the game and Google.
The email address associated with the developer of the game suggests he is an Israeli.
When BuzzFeed contacted him to ask what motivated him to make the game he replied: “The truth!”
