Spicks and Specks
Who knew naming your app after a Bee Gees song could lead to such controversy? Then again, we're not talking "Stayin' Alive" or "Night Fever". Poor judgement in titling led Apple to ban this app because it was deemed racist for using the derogatory term for US Hispanics. An ABC spokesperson pleaded with Apple to permit the program back into the App Store, stating "iTunes is a US-based platform and it automatically censors words which are considered accidentally offensive in America...We've asked Apple to review it for the Australian audience." Apple never budged.
