The killing of George Floyd by police officers has spurred not only protests across the United States, but also -- often embarrassing -- responses from brands. The queer dating app Grindr offered its own statement on Twitter and Instagram on Monday, coinciding with the first day of Pride Month. They will take action including not only donating to both BLM and the Marsha P. Johnson Institute, but also by removing their ethnicity filters for their next app release: We will not be silent. "We will continue to fight racism on Grindr," the statement said, "both through dialogue with our community and zero-tolerance policy for racism and hate speech on our platform." A Grindr spokesperson told Mashable that racism has no place in their community.
