(Newser) – Apple customers will no longer be able to grind to the Dancing Cuddle Bear app. It seems the hairy mammal is actually a well-known mascot for pedophiles so, no, he's not going to be teaching moves any longer, notes Gawker. Apple officials apparently got a clue after The Smoking Gun covered the free iPhone and iPad app. The site pointed out that "Cuddle" was actually the very recognizable "creepy" Internet meme Pedobear—and took a bit too much joy in demonstrating 11 "exotic" hip-hop moves aimed to help users hone dancing skills, impress friends, and "show off at nightclubs," the app boasted. An ad with the app offered an "official Cuddle Bear" hat for $19.99.
