Pokemon GO Fans Told Not To Play In U.S. Holocaust Museum

Attention Pokemon GO players, even though Nintendo includes memorial sites like this in its game, don't be a dick. It's pretty lame that the museum even has to ask to be removed from the game. I wonder how many other locations like this are going to pop up in the future.

The U.S. Holocaust Memorial Museum has told Pokemon GO fans not to play the popular new mobile game in its premises, describing it as "extremely inappropriate" in a memorial dedicated to the victims of Nazism. "We are attempting to have the museum removed from the game," the museum's communications director, Andy Hollinger, said in a statement.
