Users of a right-wing dating app founded by former Trump staffers have reported that they’re receiving calls from the FBI after answering one particular query of their dating profiles.
The app in query — The Right Stuff — has already been dubbed a failure after next to no women signed up and the app’s invite-only system made it almost not possible to hitch.
But now, a 3rd grievance is emerging from users — that answering a profile prompt query that asked “January 6 was …” has led to them being contacted by law enforcement.
The date in query was the identical day in 2021 when President Donald Trump supporters stormed the US Capitol following his election defeat.
A fast scroll through the reviews within the app store reveal several comments complaining of getting a phone call from the FBI shortly after filling out the profile.
People went online to complain that the app wasn’t trustworthy. Apple
“App asks about January sixth … I said I used to be there because I used to be, I’m a patriot … I get a call from an FBI agent the SAME DAY????,” reads one review.
“Seriously, what stunt are they attempting to pull? Whoever developed this must be deepstate setting us up … I got here here to seek out love, not a rattling warrant.”

One other wrote, “I answered the query about January sixth truthfully and the following day I had two cops at my door telling me that they got a call alleging that I used to be involved in domestic terrorism???
“Don’t use this app unless you wish to be harassed by left-wing fascists.”
One more commented, “I actually have a friend who worked as a coder on this app and he showed me proof that the FBI added backdoor access.”
Overall, the app is just sitting at a 2.5-star rating within the Apple store, with a big majority of the comments complaining concerning the lack of girls.
