OkCupid bans white supremacist "for life", asks daters to report others

OkCupid bans white supremacist

That's what OkCupid officially decided today when they banned white supremacist Chris Cantwell, one of the people VICE followed around in their epic documentary on the protests in Charlottesville, from the dating website.

When the company was alerted that Cantwell was a user, it took all of 10 minutes for the neo-Nazi to get banned, OkCupid announced in a tweet.

Mr. Cantwell appeared in a Vice News documentary on Monday talking about his political and racial beliefs and why he attended the "Unite the Right" rally in Charlottesville, Virginia where a woman was run over and killed allegedly by a white nationalist sympathizer on Saturday.

An OkCupid spokesperson maintained that the site will readily ban anyone involved in hate groups, and called on users for help flagging down anyone with links to such groups.

"There is no room for hate when you're looking for love", the company said on Twitter. In his interview with Vice, Cantwell described his dating philosophy and provided insight into how he might behave as a father to a young daughter.

"I don't think that you could feel about race the way I do and watch that Kushner b--d walk around with that lovely girl", he said.

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.

And according to the UK's Independent, Mr. Cantwell recently posted a video about a potential warrant for his arrest after Saturday's events.

"I'm terrified", Cantwell told police officers in that video.

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.

OK Cupid's decision to ban Cantwell for life undoubtedly made his quest to find someone willing to fight and die with him that much more hard.
