Pepe Is Banned From the Apple App Store

An anonymous reader shares a report: The rarest pepe is one found on the iOS App Store, and now we know why: Apple has categorized the meme frog as “objectionable content” and has rejected an app called Pepe Scream, Motherboard confirmed. “Your app contains images and references of Pepe the Frog, which are considered objectionable content,” an Apple App Review Board employee named Nicole wrote in a rejection notice to Spirit Realm Games, the developer of Pepe Scream. “It would be appropriate to remove the references and revise the images in your app.” MrSnrhms, a developer for Spirit Realm Games, gave Motherboard temporary access to the team’s iOS developer account, which showed that Apple did indeed reject the app because it contains Pepe, a cartoon frog that has been increasingly associated with the alt-right.
