Following Target’s decision to pull GTA V from sale overnight, Kmart has confirmed that it is doing the same.
The total number of stores to pull the R18+ title over its depiction of sexual violence against women now totals two.
Here’s Kmart’s official statement:
Following a significant review of all content in Grand Theft Auto Games Kmart has taken the decision to remove this product immediately.
Kmart apologises for not being closer to the content of this game.
Target took the lead on taking down GTA V last night from sale following a petition which now has 44,000 signatures protesting the game’s depiction of sexualised violence against women.
