Bumble Dating App Blocks Jane Austen After Users Thought Her Profile Was Fake
Dear Bumble Dating Application Company,
I sit somberly at my desk this brisk morning after having been notified via my cellular telephone that I have been removed from your matchmaking service. Bewildered and belittled are the two words I find best describe my current state.
Perhaps even more troubling than the mere exile from your service was the reason offered to justify such an atrocity. I shall quote your Bee themed incorporation at this point, a very cute theme I might add, very cute.
“Dear Jane, your account has been removed due to a number of reports from users claiming “this bitch dead doe” and “she ain’t alive, this account is fake!”
First, it is my impression that your Bumble Bee based company, again, very dainty and cute, was constructed as a platform to empower and encourage women to make the first move. Well, it seems you’ve crafted nothing more than a hive mind with the sole intention of interfering with a dead woman’s love life. Yes, I’m dead. Does this one qualification make me ineligible to betroth myself? I should hope not. I’d argue with great pride that there is prejudice amidst the coders and users of your Honey Bee love line, again soo cute, nice branding. I see the steps taken to impede the getting of my nut as nothing more than a senseless act that a company with the true intention to empower women would never make. Yes, I died hundreds of years ago but, doth that make it decidedly so that I should be denied my nut?
I hope you Buzzy Bees will eradicate this disease of a decision made by the algorithms with great haste.
