Ok so I don't get it. Flappy Bird developer Dong Nguyen makes an extremely popular app, makes (apparently) $50k a day from it, and now he is taking Flappy Bird down?

Nguyen was quoted as saying that he “cannot take it anymore.” He doesn't want to sell the app either... I dunno but something sounds very weird here.

What do you guys think about all this? Do you think it is some kind of PR stunt?
Also I am wondering ... with soo many clones of this game (not sure which came out first), why was this the only version of the app that BLEW UP?!

***update***

So word on the street is Flappy Bird ripped off a game (from 2011) called 'Piou Piou'
