    So, I guess Pepsi released an app promoting sexual conquests by men.

    I don't care for society's embrace of casual sex, but so long as it does, there is nothing inherently offensive about the app.

    Meh, whatever. It's stupid and rude but doesn't strike me as being severely damaging. I don't see an appropriate enough reason to want it pulled from the app store.

    I don't give a toss about this app but I'm tired of catering to acutely sensitive and politically correct society. The precious opinions and feelings of some are removing choice from the rest of us.

    They should pull the application. It's in poor taste. Leaving it up runs the risk of more media coverage and public image damage.
