Are you surprised? I'm not.

Above, I've got a screenshot of the now-changed Robinhood app listing on the Google Play Store, where the search giant is now meddling in this debacle and is wiping negative reviews... like we weren't going to notice.

Apple seems to have also stepped up and removed negative reviews of the Robinhood iOS app from the App Store, which I've got a screenshot of below. Didn't take Apple long there at all.
