Individuals claiming to be users of the new dating app The Right Stuff have stated they were contacted by the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) and law enforcement agencies.
The recently launched conservative-focused app includes a conversation prompt encouraging users to share their opinions on January 6th, the Independent explained. This refers to the January 6th attack on The Capitol in Washington DC.
One individual, claiming to be a user, stated on the Apple App Store that they admitted to attending the attack in response to the app’s prompt. This consequently led to them being contacted by the FBI, according to the statement.
Another alleged user stated they replied to the January 6 prompt “honestly”, resulting in two police officers visiting their home. These commenters have accused the app of being a platform for “setting us up” and “to subvert our constitutional rights”.
Apart from concerns over law enforcement involvement, other reviews of the app have criticised the platform’s invite-only system for creating a limited user base.
