The Right Stuff dating app: Users of right-wing dating app contacted by FBI
Users of a right-wing dating app founded by former Trump staffers have reported receiving calls from the FBI after answering a particular question in their dating profiles.
The app in question – ‘The Right Stuff’ – has already been dubbed a failure after no women signed up and the app’s invite-only system made it nearly impossible to join.
But now a third complaint is emerging from users – answering a profile prompt question that asked “January 6 was…” resulted in them being contacted by law enforcement.
The date in question was the same day in 2021 when Trump supporters stormed the US capital following his defeat in the presidential election.
A quick scroll through the reviews in the App Store reveals several comments complaining about receiving a phone call from the FBI shortly after completing the profile.
“The app asks about January 6th…I said I was there because I was, I’m a patriot…I get a call from an FBI agent on the SAME DAY? ???,” one review read.
“Seriously, what stunt are they trying to pull off? Whoever developed this must be deeply setting us up…I came here to find love, not a fucking warrant.
Another wrote: “I answered the question about January 6 honestly and the next day I had two police officers at my door who told me they had received a call alleging that I was involved in domestic terrorism???
“Do not use this app unless you want to be harassed by leftist fascists.”
Yet another commented: “I have a friend who worked as a coder on this app and he showed me proof that the FBI added backdoor access.”
Overall, the app only achieves a 2.5-star rating in the Apple Store, with the vast majority of reviews complaining about the lack of women.
