OFFENSIVE APPLE APP IS BANNED IN ITALY! ARE THEY RIGHT?
Italy's tourism minister has demanded that Apple remove the "offensive" What Country app from its online store after the travel guide described the Italy as the home of "pizza, the Mafia and scooters".
The mafia sign used by Apple that has caused outrage in Italy
The application, which can be downloaded to iPhones, iPads and iPods, characterises each nation with words and images; Italy is summed up with a road sign which reads "Mafia parking only".
England is characterised by "tea, weird sense of humour, football hooligans and rain", while Germany is summed up with "beer, discipline and autobahns". China is reduced to "overpopulation, kung fu, Great Wall, Tibet and tea ceremony", while the most defining characteristics of the US are "melting pot, hamburger and the American dream".
Scotland is described as a land of mountains with lochs and soaring eagles. A land of poets, artists and great thinkers. A country that has spawned some of the world's greatest inventions and medicines. It just a pity, they've got to live next to those fucking arseholes!
