"Grand Theft Auto V" Ban Spreads And Gamers Are Getting Really Angry

Kmart followed the lead of sister-company Target and announced on Thursday that the wildly popular game - which has been out for more than a year but recently re-released on Playstation 4 - was not suitable for selling in its many Australian stores.

"It's a game that encourages players to murder women for entertainment. The incentive is to commit sexual violence against women, then abuse or kill them to proceed or get 'health' points".

All-age retailers like Target and Kmart have roundly come under attack for featuring the R18+ in the "toys" section.

BuzzFeed News has contacted several other large department stores to question whether they would continue to sell the game.
