Dating App Bumble Bans Guns From Profile Pictures

The Site is Taking a Stand After Parkland Shooting

As citizens of a global social media community, we've all become accustomed to seeing online censorships across the major platforms. For instance, it's very common to see a photograph taken down on Instagram if it is deemed too sexual for their PG audience. However, never did we think that censorship would make it's way into our dating apps. Of course, dating apps like Tinder or Bumble certainly fall under the social media umbrella—they're another way to advertise yourself as an individual in a digital space. But it comes as national news for one of the big sites for online romance (and hookups) to take a stand against selfies in a big way. Yet, this is exactly what the dating app Bumble is up to these days. Take a look at the photo gallery below to learn about their new ban and let us know your thoughts and opinions on the matter in the comments section on Facebook.
