Grindr Will Remove Race and Ethnicity Filter From Gay Dating App in Support of Black Lives Matter


Grindr announced that if will finally remove the ethnicity filter from its popular gay hook up app, citing user feedback and a commitment to the Black Lives Matter movement.

“We will not be silent, and we will not be inactive,” the company said in a post on social media Monday. “We will continue to fight racism on Grindr, both through dialogue with our community and a zero-tolerance policy for racism and hate speech on our platform. As part of this commitment, and based on your feedback, we have decided to remove the ethnicity filter from our next release.⁣”

Oh, it only took them how many years and something like this for them to finally listen. Trash app.
