Grindr has appeared to throw shade at a transphobic US journalist, after he alerted the FBI that his Grindr profile was shut down, by selling limited edition gender neutral t-shirts and giving all profits to transgender charities. Chadwick Moore had recently posted a series of transphobic tweets, in which he tagged FBI jokingly stating that they probably won’t investigate it. Grindr has now appeared to mock Moore, posting on Twitter that it is producing a new limited selection t-shirt, emblazoned with the caption: “Grindr is a construct,” with all profits going to the National Center for Transgender Equality. Grindr stated that it was a sign that the platform is welcoming for people of all identities and demands to respect the pronouns policy as the future is fluid.
Moore, a former writer for Out magazine who has become an outspoken supporter of Donald Trump, claimed he had been kicked out from the New York gay bar, but later this information was dismissed.
