Kmart Has Now Pulled Grand Theft Auto V In Australia

We’ve just gotten official word that Kmart Australia has also pulled Grand Theft Auto V from stores in Australia. More news on this soon.

An official from Kmart Australia confirmed the news to Kotaku over the phone.

“Following a significant review of all content in Grand Theft Auto Games Kmart has taken the decision to remove this product immediately,” read a statement. ”Kmart apologises for not being closer to the content of this game.”

This comes in the wake of news that Target pulled the game from shelves after receiving a 41,000 strong petition.

It’s worth noting that both Kmart and Target are owned by the same retail group, Wesfarmers. It could be that the group itself is simply covering all possible bases after the petition.
