When the company was alerted that Cantwell was a user, it took all of 10 minutes for the neo-Nazi to get banned, OkCupid announced in a tweet.
There is no room for hate in a place where you're looking for love.— OkCupid (@okcupid) August 17, 2017
“OkCupid has zero tolerance for racism,” CEO Elie Seidma told Gizmodo. “We make a lot of decision every day that are tough. Banning Christopher Cantwell was not one of them.”
OkCupid said it also welcomes anyone to report hateful people on the app.

Aside from his notoriety as the vile racist with the cavalier attitude about murder in the Vice documentary, Cantwell also experienced virality yesterday when the internet caught wind of a Facebook video in which he cries over his fears of being arrested—you know, for his participation in the violent rally that ended in the death of one woman and the injuries of dozens of others.
Cantwell’s digital footprint can also be traced back to a personal blog, where he posted such gems like “8 online dating tips, for the ladies.” Advice included “Your boundaries are complete bullshit” and “In a photo of you and a friend, I assume you are the ugly one.”
No word whether he matched with anyone ever.
