Angry Birds for girls is officially a thing. Yup, you read that right. So, apparently the regular version of the ridiculously popular game just wasn't, you know, befitting gender stereotypes quite enough.
The new bird in question is pink, of course, but that's not the only slightly sexist element of the game.
"Get ready to meet Stella and her friends," reads the press material which comes alongside the game's launch. "Stella may be pink, but she's definitely one of the Angry Birds, a fierce and a feisty character with a great group of friends. Of course no story is complete without some interesting (fr)enemies!"
Mikael Hed, the CEO of Rovio, the company behind the app, says the game breaks the mold, "by introducing strong, passionate characters who really stand for something". Though we're not entirely sure what meaning can be fathomed from a game about shooting a bird from a slingshot at a bunch of weird pig creatures.
