Finding love is hard enough, but it is even harder for those who identify as white supremacists. Chris Cantwell, one of the organizers of the deadly Charlottesville rally, was recently booted off OkCupid after the website was alerted to his profile.

OkCupid, which is owned by Match.com, revealed that they had kicked Cantwell of the platform in a series of tweets, as reported by Fox News. According to the website, they banned Cantwell for life just 10 minutes after his profile was brought to their attention.

“There is no room for hate in a place where you’re looking for love,” the website said in a follow-up statement, adding that users report profiles of people who are known to be involved in hate groups.

Before he was banned, the 36-year old Cantwell used the handle “ItsChris603,” as reported by ArsTechnica. In his profile he says he spends a lot of time thinking about “getting married and how to stop the Democrat party from destroying Western Civilization.”

With his profile removed, many of his writings on the website were also taken down. One example, “8 Online Dating Tips, for the Ladies,” reveals he is somewhat of an expert in the online dating world. He cites his reason for Joining OkCupid as well as PlentyOfFish is because “Tinder, HowAboutWe, MeetMe, Zoosk, and a number of other apps more spam than real people on them.”

According to OkCupid’s CEO Elie Seidman, their reason for being public with Cantwell’s expulsion from the website is because it is their responsibility to be clear about the human values of OkCupid’s community. Seidman added that the formula on whether someone conforms to their value is simple, “Nazi or white supremacists = bad.”

Cantwell’s lifetime ban from OkCupid is just one of the several bans he received from tech companies following his rise to infamy in the past week. Facebook was among the first to do so, stating that he directly violated their terms of service by using their platform for hate speech.

However, Cantwell has more pressing issues to attend to than some social media bans. A warrant for his arrest has reportedly been put out following the Charlottesville rally. Taking to YouTube, he posted a video which showed him crying out of fear for his life.

“I called the Charlottesville Police Department and I said, ‘I have been told that there’s a warrant out for my arrest,’” he said in the video. “They said that they wouldn’t confirm it but that I could find this out if I wanted to go a local magistrate or something. I’m terrified. I think you’re going to kill me.”

Cantwell was once featured on “The Colbert Report” in a skit titled “Difference Makers” where he and two others were “Robin Hooding,” the act of putting coins in parking meters before law enforcement gets to the vehicle, reports the Daily Dot. According to him, he tagged along due to recent acts of violence that made him want to protect his friends while they were Robin Hooding.

It seems interesting that after a few years, he is now the one inciting violence against others as a white supremacist.
