[MyFoxNY] An exclusive online meeting place billed as a dating website for “beautiful men and women” was causing new outrage Monday after dumping 30,000 members deemed too ugly. Last month Beautifulpeople.com was the victim of a cyber attack in which the Shrek virus — named after the ugly animated character — attacked the software used to screen applicants, allowing an influx of new members, The Guardian reported. Unfortunately several thousand of those members failed to meet the Denmark-based site’s aesthetic standards, and have now been dropped. Such is the level of fury, the site’s operators have set up a counseling helpline to ease the pain of rejection. The ugly members cull is not the first time the site has courted controversy, news.com.au reported. In January this year it asked 5,000 users to reapply after they posted pictures of themselves looking chubbier than usual celebrating the festive season. And earlier this month it sparked controversy in Ireland by declaring that Irish men were among the world’s ugliest.
Talk about a kick in the nuts…”hey jerk-off, you’re too ugly for internet dating; pussy shop is closed!”
This is one of those stories that doesn’t affect me personally but for some reason it tugs at my heart for those poor, less fortunate bastards out there. Isn’t that what internet dating was invented for? People who are too ugly/awkward in person to successfully find a mate. I mean what fucking marketing genius cooked up this business model? “What is our target demographic? Ugly, lonely schmucks who sit behind computer screens, wishing to finally get laid in real life…Yeah fuck them. Let’s open up shop for people who don’t need this fucking site in the first place.” I know there’s no such thing as too much pussy (just like money) but how fucking selfish can you be “beautiful people”?
P.S. love the modern twist on the old “Irish need not apply” theme – a timeless classic
