The creator of the addicting mobile game is receiving incredibly angry tweets from fans who are outraged that the app has been deleted. Several Twitter users are threatening to kill him and others are asking that he take his own life.
The virtual death of Flappy Bird has enraged fans so much that they are viciously attacking the man behind the bird, Dong Nguyen. The death tweets he is receiving are unimaginable and it’s all because of a virtual yellow bird.
Flappy Bird Creator Receiving Death Threats On Twitter
Dong told the world via Twitter on Feb. 8 that he was deleting the app in 22 hours because he “cannot take this anymore.”
I am sorry ‘Flappy Bird’ users, 22 hours from now, I will take ‘Flappy Bird’ down. I cannot take this anymore.
— Dong Nguyen (@dongatory) February 8, 2014
It is not anything related to legal issues. I just cannot keep it anymore. — Dong Nguyen (@dongatory) February 8, 2014
That’s when fans of the game went into attack mode.

“@dongatory: I will take ‘Flappy Bird’ down. ” I WILL MURDER YOU.

@dongatory YOURE A FUCKING PUSSY!!! And this game sucks anyway. But you’re still a pussy. Kill yourself.

@dongatory I will kill you mother fucker
The game was released in May 2013, and it immediately became one of the most popular downloads. It’s sad that this is the response from once loyal fans.
This came after there was a hoax that Dong had killed himself.
Flappy Bird Suicide Hoax — Dong Nguyen Did NOT Kill Himself
The Flappy Bird death hoax began on Feb. 10, shortly after the app was removed from all online stores
The following is the fake news report being circulated online:
SAN FRANCISCO — Flappy Bird developer Dong Nguyen has just been found dead in his home with a gunshot wound in his dead. Authorities are confirming that Nguyen committed suicide by shooting himself in the head with a pistol. Authorities are saying that the sensational game Flappy Bird had something to do with the suicide.
This is not true at all and it’s upsetting that this happened.
HollywoodLifers, are you sad that Flappy Bird is gone?
