Today, Whitney has made her own move in the dating industry with her very own dating app designed to make the process less stressful for women. This dating app is known as Bumble and has already gained a lot of traction in the short period of time it has been released. Women are put first when it comes to Bumble, allowing them to avoid anyone they want and make the first move in all situations. Bumble also made a recent addition that focuses on bringing people together to be friends and perform hobbies together, which is rather unique when it comes to dating apps.
Not long ago, Whitney Wolfe issued a banning of all guns from her company website due to the shooting that happened in Florida at Douglas High School. This was not received in a positive manner, however, with many threats coming out towards Whitney Wolfe for making this move. It was bad enough that Whitney needed stationed guards around her work in order to keep her protected. Whitney Wolfe issued a statement that her company and her staff do not approve of gun violence and the same applies to Bumble, where no pictures of guns are tolerated. While it can be tough to deal with threats, Whitney has not let the negative actions led by some people hold her back or keep her from continuing with her projects.
