The right-wing political views of the new head of Grindr are causing some users to delete the popular gay dating and hookup app.The tag #DeleteGrindr is trending after news incoming CEO George Arison, 44, previously tweeted he was a conservative who supported some of the positions of then-President Donald Trump, Florida Governor Ron DeSantis, and Virginia Governor Glenn Youngkin.
Arrison, who is openly gay, starts his new job on October 19.“FYI I am a conservative & agree with some Trump policies,” Arison wrote in a since-deleted Tweet on February 28, 2020. “Should totally run for President,” he wrote of Youngkin in a retweet dated February 24 of this year.
Arison appeared to express support for DeSantis in another retweet from January. In a retweet, he wrote the man who championed the recently passed “don’t say gay” law was “not ideal” but agreed the Republican governor was “better-suited to advance a new, more comabtive (sic) and populist party.” The Advocate has reached out to Grindr for comment.Users on social media responded quickly, calling out the past statements from Arison.
