Facebook Removes Homophobic Game
Facebook has acted against prejudice of homosexuals as it has decided to remove a game that comes across as homophobic.
The game, Call of Taburetka, received numberous complaints on Facebook where the social network then took action. Apparently the game was based on real events from the 17 May rally that was established as “International Day Against Homophobia” in Tbilisi, Georgia.

The point of the game is to re-enact the events of the day, where a group of homophobians–led by a priest–attacked a pro-gay rights march. On the day, 17 people were injured because of this.
Protesters in the march were allegedly thrown with stools, and this is the reason for the name of the game, as Call of Taburetka translates to “Call of the stool.”
It was reported that Facebook took the game down due to the complaints received. However, the game’s developer, a Georgian named Kakha Giorgashvili, responded by saying that the game is not homophobic but rather an re-enactment of the events of the march.
Dear friends, this game it not anti-gay. it just describes what happened on may 17. From author.
Many do not agree with the explanation given, and neither does Facebook, so it seems.
Facebook requires application developers to comply with various standards and regulations. Such prohibitions aim to eliminate hate speech based on “race, ethnicity, national origin, religion, sex, gender, sexual orientation, disability or medical condition.”
