A New Tinder-Like Dating App Aims To “Weed Out The Poor And Unattractive”
December 8, 2014
1. This week, a new dating app has launched that promises wealthy people the chance to fall in love with other wealthy people in their sad, lonely, rich world.
2. The app, Luxy, was developed in Silicon Valley, and has been causing outrage online for describing itself as “Tinder without the poor people”.
It claims its members include “CEOs, entrepreneurs, investors, millionaires, beauty queens, fitness models, Hollywood celebrities, pro athletes, doctors, lawyers and successful people, just [to] name a few.”
“It works just like Tinder,” the anonymous CEO of Luxy says in the press release. “With one big exception: Our app allows users to weed out the poor and unattractive.”
According to the statement, the average income of users is over $200,000 and those who are “unable to keep up financially” are removed from the app immediately.
