“You spent money to animate something that would intentionally bring shame to DV [domestic violence] victims and made a joke of it!!!

“This isn’t about my personal feelings… but all the women, children and men that have been victims of DV in the past and especially the ones who haven’t made it out yet…. You let us down!

“Shame on you. Throw the whole app-oligy away.”
