Kmart's Grand Theft Auto Ban Widens: GTA 4 Now In The Crosshairs

Kmart is now pulling all copies of Grand Theft Auto off the shelves. That includes Grand Theft Auto 4 and its various spin-off episodes. This is in addition to the stop-sale of Grand Theft Auto V titles from Kmart stores around the country.

Grand Theft Auto V was pulled from sale this morning, following a decision from sister chain, Target, to do the same.

Kmart has confirmed to Gizmodo Australia that all Grand Theft Auto titles are being pulled from Australian stores, as a result of complaints over sexual violence against women present in the fifth iteration of the series.

This was Kmart’s statement from this morning:

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.
