An iTunes game that asks users to perform plastic surgery on a character that "has so much extra weight no diet can help her" in a bid to "make her slim and beautiful", has caused outrage on Twitter.
The app, which is marketed to girls aged nine and above, is available on iTunes and is available to download for both the iPhone and iPad.
The game is entitled "Plastic Surgery & Plastic Doctor & Plastic Hospital Office for Barbie Version" has been criticised by Twitter account @EverydaySexism, which documents peoples' experiences of sexism and harrassment.
The game challenges the user to help the character to lose weight through liposuction and the app's description reads:
This unfortunate girl has so much extra weight that no diet can help her. In our clinic she can go through a surgery called liposuction that will make her slim and beautiful.
We'll need to make small cuts on problem areas and suck out the extra fat. Will you operate [on] her, doctor?
Twitter users have called the game "gross" and "disgusting" with some people writing:
