U.S. Gov Forces Grindr to Find New Buyer Citing National Security Risk

American government forces Chinese gaming company Kunlun to sell Grindr over "national security risk."

Trading hole pics? An international crisis!

Earlier this year, it was reported that the U.S. government had pushed the Chinese gaming company that owns Grindr to sell the sex app after the Committee on Foreign Investment in the United States (or, CFIUS) found that all that data-sharing of personal information like location and HIV status posed a “national security risk.” Now, Beijing Kunlun Tech Co Ltd has agreed to the U.S. government’s request sell Grindr in what Reuters has dubbed “a rare, high-profile example of CFIUS undoing an acquisition that has already been completed.” A June 2020 deadline has been set for Grindr to find a buyer.

I don’t know what’s scarier, the United States government exerting its influence in international business affairs like the imperial power it’s always been, or big soulless tech giants harvesting the personal information we’re stupid enough to give them and using that information for their own financial benefit. Which one’s worse? I couldn’t tell you — I’m just a dumb, hysterical woman! I need a man to figure this one out for me. When reached for comment, the men in my Grindr DMs had this to say:

• “Heyy”

• ”Good morning”

• ”Hey looking to hookup?”

• “U look so good in jeans”

• “So are you doing later”

• “Hey can I eat you good?”

• ”Looking for MFT play”

• “Move in with me”

Why aren’t the men helping????
