‘Hunt the gays’ game returns


shoot_gay_game_returnsA notoriously homophobic game, which involves shooting as many gay men as possible before they “rape” the player, has resurfaced in the Google Play app store.

The game, Ass Hunter, was first created in 2002 by Frenchman Stéphane Aguie. It was met with outrage by gay activists, who successfully lobbied to have it removed from websites in 2009.

It then appeared in the form of a Facebook game that the social media giant banned last year.

Now, it has returned once again, this time as an android app in the Google Play store.

The description reads: “Popular game hunting on gays is now on android! Play and do not be gay!

“Legendary game, where you are hunter and your mission is to kill gays as much as you can or escape between them to the next level.

“Gays may be hidden in bushes and unexpectedly catch you. Remember! When they catch you they will do with you whatever they want ;)”

In his review, Marcus Hamilton wrote: “I cannot comprehend how someone could create a ‘game’ so wilfully ignorant, hateful, vile and violent.”

Despite the game being slated by many reviewers, it was rated 4 out of 5 and had been downloaded more than 10,000 times.

Following complaints, the game appears to have now been taken down.
