Pepsi pulls controversial iphone app

The “Before You Score” app (for it’s new product AMP) encourages young men to score with a member of the opposite sex and then share their story on Facebook or Twitter.  The app came under heavy criticism from the media and Pepsi has now removed it from iTunes.

Even in more progressive social media spheres, campaigns that cross the line are receiving both above and below the line media attention.
