Apple appears to have pulled the antigay Exodus International iPhone app from the App Store, although the company has not yet released a statement on the move.
Change.org, home of a petition against the app started by Truth Wins Out, reported on the apparent change late Tuesday.
“Apple has been under fire for more than a week now for carrying a ‘gay cure’ app on its platform from Exodus International. But if you try to access the controversial app this evening, this is the message you'll get: ‘The item you've requested is not currently available in the U.S. store.’”
According to Change.org, the president of Exodus International, Alan Chambers, tweeted that their ‘gay cure’ app was removed from the App Store.
The petition against the app garnered more than 145,000 supporters, and counting. Visitors are encouraged to continue to sign the petition because Apple has not released an official statement.
