“Angry Trayvon” App Sparks Outrage
MIAMI (CBSMiami) – A mobile game called “Angry Trayvon” available through app stores has sparked enough controversy to convince the developer of the game to promise to shut it down.
The game’s main character is a man in a hooded sweatshirt who walks through different areas, like Brooklyn, New York, to complete “his world tour of revenge on the bad guys who terrorize cities everyday.(sic)”
The game’s description said that each completed level will bring “more bad guys coming at Trayvon at a faster pace and a deadlier attack.” The game allows users to purchase a dagger to throw at enemies and allows you to “collect the money that the bad guys will drop once you kill them to increase your score.”
The game was made by Trade Digital and after outrage exploded on Facebook, the company said it removed the game from app stores. The game was no longer available on Apple’s store, but was still being sold for $1.99 on Google Play.
