Why ethnic got removed?
Hello, why the option “ethnic” got removed from filter to searching?

You guys made a blunder! You removed ethnicity because of the recent events and that’s not OK 🛎😡🤬 You are looking at it from the wrong perspective, we most users are certainly not looking at it under a racist angle but as a preference! I’m from a Mediterranean ethnicity and I’m into black guys (go black never turn back 🍆🤣) there is no way whities can turn me on! If we follow your logic, why don’t you remove the age, height, weight... this could also be considered as discrimination against short, tall, fat, old guys... I think it’s about time to start looking for a new app, morons!
I like Asian and the Asian guys like me ! Why did you supprim this filter ?
So Grindr. You made a public comment because you wanted to jump on the bandwagon, and removed the ethnic filter, which is more of a preference than racist. Might as well take the age and weight filter away too, maybe height as well seeing as I'm not into short guys (I'm 6'3). Well that's my subscription cancelled as all I get now is a sea of profiles that I'm not sexually attracted to. I live in a majority Caucasian country and city, I've no issues with everyday interactions, just not sexually attracted to white. Now, I can't even see if someone I like is driving distance away as my screen is now full of profiles I've no interest in nor can discern (no pic etc.) Swallow your **** up (no pun intended) Grindr and bring the ethnic filter back. You've made the app unusable

This kind of filter allows people to target minority groups for criminal acts. The security issue outweighs any user preference issue.
They are losing a lot of clients from canceling their subscription. I’m cancelling mine. They won’t refund a prorated amount. I’m going to my cc company and showing them it’s a breach of contract on their part because I am no longer receiving the service I was told I would get when I signed up. Dispute it with your credit card company.
You just created non black privilege
Defeating the purpose of what you trying to implement . What a mess
I am a black man and love my black men I pay xtra and not one black man on my profile
So why should I pay for Xtra and can’t get what I want
I am going to stop my subscription Waste of money
They did take it out for racial reasons. They told me their backing of BLM was part of the decision.
I cancelled my subscription.
As paying members of a subscription service we should have the option to use an ethnicity filter. Ethnicity, like ****** preference is very personal. What a stupid idea. I will need to find an app that still caters to its paying members.
Why? What a stupid idea!
Put the search back in.
God please tell me they don’t think an ethnicity search is racist.
