Coffee Meets Bagel

Members of the dating app Coffee Meets Bagel were met with an unfortunate typo on Sunday, which misspelled the word “flag” as "f--" for Flag Day. This major faux pas came at a rather inappropriate time, while cities like Brooklyn, Boston, and Washington D.C were all celebrating the annual gay-pride festival.

Twitter users were quick to jump on the mistake:

Of course, “Coffee Meets Bagel” came back with multiple apologies:

As well as taking to Twitter, Coffee Meets Bagel sent out an e-mail to all of their members, which reads, in part:

“I would like to apologize wholeheartedly for the message you received this afternoon. The misspelling of Flag Day was a mistake and a complete oversight. We're updating our process to ensure something like this does not happen again.

Coffee Meets Bagel, as a company and as individual employees, celebrates the LGBTQ community and would never use such a word.”

“Coffee Meets Bagel” claims to be “the only dating app that women love!” Hopefully, the app will get its social media department together before next year’s Flag Day
