Stuff like this has no need to be on the iPhone or App store.

Ya, people seem to be losing the ability to just look past something if it bothers them. With the obvious exception being if you CAN'T avoid it then I can see you having a problem with it.

Everyone needs to yell and scream and stick their nose in everything. I personally don't get it. With that said though this obviously doesn't need to be on the marketplace as much as it didn't need to get the uproar over it. Just ignore it and let it fade into oblivion like it would have on it's own.

Well, it's offencive. and It's good apple took it off.

I would have reported it if I saw it, same if I saw blatantly sexist or racist apps.

Huh, I bet if you had a Gay Maker app it would never be taken down. Such a one sided world.
