The latest entity to join the fight against hate groups is…the dating application world? Following the violence at last weekend’s white nationalist rally in Charlottesville, Va., two of the biggest dating apps out there—OkCupid and Bumble—have made it clear they won’t allow white supremacists to swipe for love on their apps.
OkCupid tweeted out its stance after a user reported that Chris Cantwell, a well-known white supremacist featured in the recent Vice News documentary on Charlottesville, was found on the app.
“We were alerted by another dater on OkCupid who had been contacted by Cantwell recently,” the company told Mashable.
OkCupid verified it really was Cantwell before making the announcement publicly.
