Dhe app of the satirical magazine “Titanic” is available again in the Google Play Store. The y wanted to “sincerely apologize to“ Titanic ”and its readers for the fact that the app was not available in the meantime. We too think: humor and satire shouldn’t go under – especially not in Germany, ”said the spokesman for Google Germany, Alexander Bressel.

“All cover images and content are displayed uncensored again, as we requested – we suspect that Google simply couldn’t afford a longer ban on ‘Titanic'”, said the magazine’s editor-in-chief, Moritz Hürtgen. “Nevertheless, we will continue Google’s activities observe closely and critically. “
