    Holocaust Museum: Please stop playing Pokémon Go here

    "Playing the game is not appropriate in the museum, which is a memorial to the victims of Nazism," Andrew Hollinger, the Holocaust Museum's communications director, told The Post. "We are trying to find out if we can get the museum excluded from the game."

    The museum appears to be a haven for Poison Gas-type Pokémon.

    An image circulating online appears to show a player encountering an unsettling digital critter inside the museum: a Pokémon called Koffing that emits poisonous gas floating by a sign for the museum's Helena Rubinstein Auditorium. The auditorium shows the testimonials of Jews who survived the gas chambers.

    Hollinger said that the museum is concerned about the potential Koffing appearance.

    “I don’t think there’s anything wrong with the game itself,” Chris Desciora, a security guard at the memorial, told the New York Times.

    “But you know, maybe the game’s services could consider where they are placing the Pokémon or whatever,” he added.

    What do Pokémon have in common with The Holocaust?

    Neither of them are real!

    I'm shocked you doubted the assholeness of Bieber. I hope you won't let it happen again.

    The image, which appears to have originated from a now deleted post on the photo-sharing site imgur, might be a hoax: That particular Pokémon didn't appear nearby when this Post reporter visited the museum Monday afternoon, although the specific Pokémon that appears in each location does vary from time to time. Hollinger said that the museum is concerned about the potential Koffing appearance.
