This Alt-Right Journalist Was Banned From a Gay Hookup App and Wants the FBI to Investigate

Be first to like this.

Gay writer Chadwick Moore went from reporter to news subject when he penned a somewhat sympathetic profile of queer Trump poster boy Milo Yiannopoulos for Out magazine in 2016. Since then he’s “come out” as a conservative and gone full-tilt reactionary, carrying the Republican banner and appearing on Fox News, Breitbart and even Alex Jones’ InfoWars site. Now Moore is a news subject once again, claiming he’s been unfairly banned from Grindr for making a transphobic comment on his profile. But why was Chadwick Moore banned from the hookup app?

Here’s what got Chadwick Moore banned: He tweeted earlier this week that the app “just shut down my profile for the second time this year because under the ‘Gender’ question (weird af) I wrote ‘There are only 2.’ … So funny! … If trans women are real women why are they lurking on a gay men’s dating app. And doesn’t the whole trans narrative only deeply further the gender binary? So weird.”

Moore, who added that he wanted to see the app’s “internal company guidelines on postmodernism, gender theory and banned words,” also tagged the FBI in his Twitter tirade and suggested the Bureau investigate the hookup app, which he called “a notorious conduit of prostitution, illegal drug use, illegal drug sales, and the spread of disease.”

Without a doubt, the most thrilling part of this entire “Chadwick Moore banned from a gay hookup app” debacle is the wave of hilarious responses from the gay community, who altogether have little sympathy for the alt-right shill. Check out some of the more hilarious Twitter replies below:

In March, Moore claimed he was ejected from Metropolitan, a gay bar in Williamsburg, because of his right-wing agenda. But the bar’s owners said his removal had nothing to do with his politics.

“You have come in here quite frequently without incident,” the bar posted on Facebook. “We understand that your political views do not match ours, but that doesn’t mean you are not welcome here.

“You were asked to leave because your ‘brother-in-law, who’s a straight guy from Alabama and a truck driver’ (your words) started a fight at our sister bar right before you came here,” they added. “Play that victim card though.”
