Tweet at iBooks and Apple to Remove Racist, Violent Erotica

Apple’s iBooks is filled with erotic literature that supports rape myths, normalizes adult-with-teen-themed and incest-themed exploitation, and reinforces degrading racially charged sexual stereotypes.

Many of the book descriptions mention that the girl is reluctant to participate or is involved in “forced sex.” Forced sex is rape. Additionally, erotic stories on iBooks target Black, Asian, Latin, and Indian races with a variety of the books involve bondage and submission of minority races to white males.

Contacting companies on social media is a great way to get their attention, so please join with us in contacting iBooks on Twitter!
