Social media users drag conservative dating app ‘The Right Stuff’ as some subscribers claim to have been contacted by FBI

Quelle surprise: The Right Stuff appears to be going very wrong with an assortment of funny one-star reviews

ย 

In August, it was revealed that a new dating app โ€“ designed to connect single conservatives with other homophobes folk who share similar political beliefs โ€“ would be hitting the market.

ย 

The Right Stuff was announced with a video featuring creator Ryann McEnany, sister of former Trump White House press secretary Kayleigh McEnany, who assured potential users that the dating platform will be โ€œinvite-only, so not just anyone can joinโ€ (Republican code for ‘no fa*s’).

Women are incentivised to join the app with access to a premium membership for free โ€“ a benefit men have to pay extra for.

ย 

Social media, understandably, found the whole thing fu*king hilarious and dragged the app for its “anti-woke” manifesto (click here and scroll to the bottom for funny tweets) – and now it seems even Republicans have turned on it.

ย 

The app – which received financial backing gay conservative billionaire and Paypal co-founder Peter Thiel – not only launched to largely negative reviews, but within just days of it launching, some subscribers claim to have been contacted by the FBI over their responses on the platform.

ย 

Specifically in relation to their whereabouts on January 6… Watch the video below:

ย 

โ€œI said I was there because I was, Iโ€™m a patriot. Thatโ€™s why Iโ€™m on this dating app,โ€ wrote one user, when asked about January 6 attack on the Capitol. He then claims he was contacted by the FBI.

โ€œI use this app for hardly an evening and is it a coincidence I get a call from an FBI agent the SAME DAY????โ€ he added, before accusing the Right Stuff of being an asset of the โ€œdeep stateโ€.

ย 

Seemingly the app has question prompts – a bit like Hinge – such as โ€œMy favorite liberal lie isโ€ฆโ€, and โ€œJanuary 6th wasโ€ฆโ€

ย 

Of course, January 6 was the insurrection at the US Capitol building, for which investigations are still underway.ย 

The Right Stuff review
The Right Stuff – lol

ย 

“The next day I have two police officers at my door”, said one user who left a one-star review.ย 

ย 

They weren’t the only one…

ย 


ย 

Other users on the app, which also reportedly has ties to Donald Trump, complained of it being full of men, with very few female profiles.ย 

ย 

Have a look at what some folk are saying on social media, where the app is currently being dragged like hell – a glorious thing to behold.ย
