The Plastic Surgery & Plastic Doctor & Plastic Hospital Office for Barbie game was widely criticised

Experts have welcomed a decision to axe an app that encourages young girls to have plastic surgery saying that it was ‘beyond bad taste’ and could lead to mental illness.

‘The Plastic Surgery & Plastic Doctor & Plastic Hospital Office for Barbie’ game, hosted by Apple on iTunes, prompted a deluge of complaints on social media sites. The bad press led to the app being withdrawn from the US and UK this week.
