Why did Flappy Bird get taken down?

Flappy Bird

Flappy Bird had a love / hate relationship with millions of people around the world. And the creater of Flappy Bird, Dong Nguyen, was getting praise & criticism from more people on a daily basis than any of us will get to speak to for the rest of our lives.

But he was making $50,000 per day from advertising from the game!

So why did he take it down?? Why didn’t he hire a PR company and a couple of other people to manage everything, and he could have just gone to live on an island for a few months???
