Pocket Gamer: Apple approves appallingly named Spasticity iOS shooter

Google the words 'Tiger Woods controversy' and you'll find a lot of stuff about text messages and porn stars. But go a bit further back and you'll find references to another clanging misjudgement.

In a press conference in 2006 Tiger admitted that he had been playing like a “spaz”.

Because the word 'spaz' is derived from the word 'spastic' or 'spasticity' people were rightly up in arms. The only mitigating point you could make in his defence is that in America the relationship between 'spaz' and 'spastic' has been eroded, so it doesn't carry the same weight. (iPhone, Spasticity)
