OKCupid Bans Embarrassing Neo Nazi Chris Cantwell For Life

Vice News

Devin Colleran, Brand Manager at OkCupid, told Elite Daily the company found out this morning that Cantwell was on the site - and immediately got rid of him.

White supremacist Christopher Cantwell, who was the subject of a recent Vice News documentary about the Charlottesville "Unite the Right" rally and the violence that followed, was looking for love - that is until he was banned from OKCupid on Thursday. That is not Ok (kk) with OkCupid, and "within 10 minutes, we banned him for life".

Cantwell was featured in a Vice documentary that chronicled the violent rally last weekend in Charlottesville, Virginia, that resulted in the death of 32-year old counter-protestor Heather Heyer.

The site made the announcement via tweet. The website also asked users to scour listings and report other profiles of people who belong to hate groups.

If you're a white supremacist, you do not have the luxury to freely search the internet for someone to cuddle you when you are lonely at night. "I'm willing to fight and die with you", he wrote.


Cantwell's OkCupid profiles look remarkably different than one written by the Southern Poverty Law Center, which describes him as "an unapologetic fascist who spews white nationalist propaganda with a libertarian spin" (and with many citations).

"OkCupid has zero tolerance for racism", CEO Elie Seidma told Gizmodo.

For instance, Cantwell and his sad buddies are legally entitled to peaceful demonstration, though no one is obligated to give them a platform for their voices. "There is no room for hate in a place where you're looking for love".

In a now-deleted post on his personal blog from December 2014, Cantwell said he enjoyed using OkCupid more than services like Tinder, HowAboutWe, MeetMe and Zoosk because there were more "real people" as opposed to spam.
