Apple Hates Stifler: American Pie App Rejected By App Store [Exclusive]

Apple Hates Stifler: American Pie App Rejected By App Store [Exclusive]

The new American Pie film American Reunion is set to open in theaters this Friday, April 6th. To help promote the movie, Universal Pictures thought it’d be a great idea to release an app called Stifler’s App Suite featuring a soundboard of all the various raunchy sayings of  the series’ infamous support character, Stifler.

Looks like Stifler was too hot for the App Store to handle, though. An anonymous source has exclusively told Cult of Mac that Apple’s App Store review team has rejected the app due to foul language. The rejection has forced the Universal team to resubmit a watered-down version of the app. Stifler’s hardly even himself anymore.

Here are some of the sayings that Apple thought were too crude for the App Store. We’ll let you decide for yourselves if the foul content that was found in the app warranted it to be rejected by Apple:

  • “suck me beautiful”, 
  • “M-I-L-F, mom I’d like to F**k”
  •  “This one time at band camp, I stuck a flute in my p***y”, 
  • “Eat S**t”

That Apple would pass on an app featuring language like this isn’t surprising: there’s tons of precedent for it. What is more surprising, however, is that similar uncensored soundboards released by indie developers have been allowed onto the App Store without raising a single eyebrow, including this soundboard featuring quotes from Eugene Levy’s character, which includes references to “masturbation” and other NSFW content.

Furthermore, the American Pie movies are also available on iTunes with an R rating. Too raunchy for kids to potentially buy on the App Store… but not from the iTunes Movie Store?

On its part, Universal openly admitted that the app contained R-rated content, according to our source. Many R-rated apps exist on the App Store, but they are usually given a 17+ age rating (for example: the official Playboy app). It’s not clear why Apple did not rate Stifler’s App Suite accordingly, but instead rejected the app outright.

In the meantime, the watered-down version of the app, which contains less objectionable PG-13 rated content, has been resubmitted to Apple for approval. We’ve reached out to Apple for comment.

    As Steve Jobs once said, if your after porn go Android. Although this isn’t exactly porn, it’s pretty crude low-brow stuff. While I’m on the subject, this article is a bit low-brow too. No one cares!!!! Between the so-called breaking news no one cares about with 4 Square and some app you helped get banned (I guess Apple isn’t the only one that does this), the constant ads for cheesy training “deals”, the Foxcon labor crap et cetera I’m getting bored.

    It’s very relevant. It speaks to corporate ideology. Have you ever seen Demolition Man? What side did you like more, the meat eating, beer drinking free side, or the side that fined you for swearing.

    If something says poop in it, I have the freedom to not download it. I want the nice clean futuristic world without the censorship. I don’t need Apple censoring it for me.

    Oh, and the fact that you are getting bored about stories detailing the deplorable conditions your devices are made in speaks more to you then it does the site.
