Match.com Terminates 'God-Awful-Looking Ugly' Daters' Memberships

DALLAS, Texas -- (TYDN) Online dating company Match.com is dropping memberships to millions of customers deemed "God-awful-looking ugly," TheYellowDailyNews has learned.

Hazel Feawich is outraged by Match.com's policy
The decision by the Dallas-based online dating site, with 20 million members, means 19,999,999 customers are expected to be terminated from the service Tuesday afternoon, on Valentine's Day.

Gary Kremen, the site's founder, said in an exclusive interview with TheYellowDailyNews that the decision was based on complaints from its members that they were being hooked up with "God-awful-looking ugly people who couldn't get a date anywhere else."

"We take those complaints seriously. So we reviewed our site and discovered that, indeed, it was full of God-awful-looking ugly people," Kremen said. "We don't want to be known as the dating site for God-awful-looking ugly people."

The revamped site will prevent God-awful-looking ugly people from joining by employing patented image filters to block God-awful-looking ugly people from uploading their God-awful-looking ugly pictures to the site, according to at least three well-placed Match.com officials with direct knowledge of the new technology who told TheYellowDailyNews on condition of anonymity.

Hazel Feawich, a 53-year-old Match.com customer who was terminated from the site on accusations of being "God-awful-looking ugly," told TheYellowDailynews exclusively that she was outraged by the news, which means she'll be alone on Valentine's Day.

"It simply shocks the conscience," she said, "that this site is preventing me from dating somebody who is God-awful-looking ugly."
