I doubt many people searching for sexy times on Grindr are thinking of using it as a means to locate lost animals. But much like Grindr’s unofficial catchphrase, sometimes desperate times call for desperate measures. Hence the woman from the town of Brighton in England who reached out to users on both Grindr and Tinder to locate her missing cat, Ruby. And I’m surprised that, since they’re in England, at no point during her investigative search on Grindr, someone didn’t message her and say, “This ain’t the place you come lookin’ for pussy, honey.”
In case you didn’t know, the gay hookup app Grindr can be a hotbed of racist activity. I myself have had guys tell me they don’t date black guys, and once a guy called me “Mexican.” And I live in Canada where racism allegedly doesn’t exist! So you get the picture. With all the racial tensions right now going on across America and the world, Grindr has decided to do something about racism on its platform. And so it’s going to remove race and ethnicity filters from the app.
