Bumble Have Named & Shamed One Of Its Users For Sexism


Dating app Bumble has named and shamed one of its users for sexist comments.

In a recent blog post, Bumble called out a user named Connor who was shown to have sent harsh, sexist comments to one of its female users.

As an app that relies on women making the first move, Ashley sent the first message to Connor, simply asking how he was.

Following his reply, she informed him of her slow day at work, before asking what he did for a living.

However, he did not take this question as an innocent way to get to know him, instead telling Ashley that she was prying into his career just to find out his salary and that this kind of conversation topic was “neo-liberal, Beyonce, feminist-cancer.”

In response to the remarks made by Connor, Bumble wrote a response in a letter-style blog post directed at him.

In it, the company said: “Knowing that Ashley simply mentioned work in the conversation – we can gather that she wasn’t hoping to figure out if your wallet was sizeable enough for her to move into your house and start cooking dinner for you after vacuuming your living room while you clock in a 9 to 5 work day.” 

They added: “We are going to hope that one day, you come around. We hope that the hate and resentment welling up inside of you will subside and you’ll be able to engage in everyday conversations with women without being cowardice to their power.”

Bumble have now blocked Connor from the app.
