The dating app Bumble donated to Planned Parenthood on Sunday based on when users “matched” with each other.
“Today, when you swipe, Bumble will donate to Planned Parenthood,” the company tweeted.
Wasn’t this the dating app that banned gun pictures?
Yep. In an interview, Bumble founder Whitney Wolfe characterized the gun debate as “bigger than politics” while explaining why the app banned users’ pictures of guns and mentions of guns in text. Is that also the reasoning behind supporting abortion giant Planned Parenthood?
What else should I know?
Bumble has donated to Planned Parenthood in the past, giving $1 for every “like” on an Instagram post in 2016 and 10 cents for each match on “Bumble BFF” in January 2017.
So Bumble censors users’ pictures of guns “because that promotes death and violence,” Glenn said on today’s show. “But then at the same time, they partner with an organization that kills unborn babies as their main priority.”
