There’s an app for just about everything, from tracking your sleep cycle to planning your meals. And apparently up until yesterday, there was one with which you could practice your liposuction skills…on Barbie.
The new app, created by Corina Rodriquez, is named “Plastic Surgery Barbra” (changed from its primary “Plastic Surgery Barbie”) with a description that reads:
“This unfortunate girl has so much extra weight that no diet can help her. In our clinic she can go through a surgery called liposuction that will make her slim and beautiful. We’ll need to make small cuts on problem areas and suck out the extra fat. Will you operate her, doctor??”
The game is recommended as being suitable for children aged nine and over, released in January 2013 and was free to download on Apple’s iTunes store. But after a full year, and a bunch of Twitter uproar, it has finally started to get attention for its absolute absurdity.
