Call To Ban Vape Apps From Google Continues
Those crazy Karen’s are still at it with renewed calls to ban vape apps from Google Play.
The anti-vape crowd really has got their knickers in a collective twist, and has gone full mob mentality calling on support from too many groups to count lol.
Saying that, anti-vaping makes for some strange bedfellows with organizations demanding the vape apps be pulled includes the:
Bangladesh Institute of Theatre Arts (BITA), Bangladesh [there’s a lot from that country] – Lotus Pediatric Clinic, Cambodia – Alianza Dominicana Anti Tabaquismo, Dominican Republic – Comité National Contre le Tabagisme, Paris France, France – Paneer HIV positive women network, India – Alliance of Independent Journalist -AJI Jakarta, Indonesia Iran’s anti-smoking population, Iran – and of course, the Bloomberg backed Campaign for Tobacco-Free Kids, United States of America to name but a few.
Like I said, some very strange groups signing up to this anti-vape campaign…things that make you go ummmm…
There is a UK signatory too – the Tobacco Control Research Group, University of Bath, UK – no surprise there.
I’ve touched on this call to ban vaping apps before and explained that Bath’s TCRG had released an anti-vaping study showing how the vape industry was using social media to influence kids to vape…yes really.
Who funds some of the the TCRG research I hear you ask..?
Not little Mike Billionaire Bloomberg surely?
Of course he does…and one wonders how many of this latest mob of anti-vaping groups also receive back-handers…oops I mean ‘funding‘ from Bloomberg…
Not being funny but WTF has as an Indian woman’s HIV group and the Bangladesh Institute of Theatre Art got to do with vaping???
But wait…follow the link above and you’ll see how I suggest Bloomberg is clearing out the vape industry to make way for a none vape vaping device called the Hale, which BTW features – wait for it – an app…haha you couldn’t make this up!
Nothing to see here move along lol….your app BAD my app GOOD!
Anyway…the letter to Google calling for the vape app ban ends:
TODAY, WE ARE CALLING ON GOOGLE TO TAKE THE NEXT STEP TO PROTECT ITS USERS FROM THE GLOBAL TOBACCO EPIDEMIC BY ADOPTING A POLICY TO PROHIBIT APPLICATIONS THAT ENCOURAGE PURCHASE OR CONSUMPTION OF SMOKING AND VAPING PRODUCTS IN THE GOOGLE PLAY STORE AND IMMEDIATELY REMOVING ALL SUCH APPLICATIONS.
Filed under shite you couldn’t make up…
As Google continues to mull over this call to ban vape apps last word to World Vapers’ Alliance Director Michael Landl:
GOOGLE ALREADY SHOWED ITS ABILITY TO PROTECT KIDS FROM ACCESSING CONTENT NOT SUITABLE FOR MINORS.IT IS CLEAR THAT THEY HAVE THE TECHNICAL ABILITY TO PROTECT CHILDREN WITHOUT DEPRIVING ADULTS OF INFORMATION.FOR THE GOOD OF PUBLIC HEALTH AND CONSUMER FREEDOM THIS ANTI-VAPING CRUSADE NEEDS TO STOP.THE HEALTH AND WELLBEING OF MILLIONS OF PEOPLE AROUND THE WORLD DEPENDS ON IT.
Couldn’t have put it better myself…
