Apple removes all Civil War games from its app store over Confederate flag controversy

Posted on Thursday, June 25 2015 @ 19:37:59 CEST by


It appears political correctness is reaching absurd levels in the US. Following last week's racist shooting in a South Carolina church, there's suddenly a witch hunt against Confederate flags. Retailer are pulling flags, manufacturers have ceased production and now news reaches us that Apple has removed seemingly all Civil War games that depict the Confederate flag from its App Store.

As MacRumors reports, Apple reasons these games display the Confederate flag in "offensive and mean-spirited ways".
Apple has removed seemingly all Civil War games from the App Store for displaying the Confederate Flag in "offensive and mean-spirited ways," our sister website TouchArcade has learned. Apple has sent a removal letter to affected developers to inform them that their app does not comply with Section 19.1 of the App Store Review Guidelines.

"19.1 Apps containing references or commentary about a religious, cultural or ethnic group that are defamatory, offensive, mean-spirited or likely to expose the targeted group to harm or violence will be rejected."

A sampling of the Civil War games removed from the App Store:

  • Ultimate General: Gettysburg
  • AAA American Civil War Cannon Shooter
  • Civil War: Hidden Mysteries
  • Civil War The Battle Game
  • Civil War Defense
  • Civil War Battle Defense
  • 1861 A Civil War Rebellion
  • Civil War: 1862
  • Civil War: 1863
  • Apple civil war game from store
