Bye Felipe is a single topic blog highlighting screenshots of abusive or hostile responses to rejection sent by men from online dating sites like OKCupid and Tinder. The name of the blog is a play on the quote "Bye Felicia", which is often used online as a dismissive farewell.
On October 14th, 2014, the "Bye Felipe" Instagram feed was launched by Los Angeles resident Alexandra Tweten, with the first post featuring an aggressive message from a man asking to chat on an online dating service (shown below).
On October 27th, 2014, The Atlantic published an article about the Instagram feed titled "The Rise of the Feminist Tinder-Creep-Busting Web Vigilante," comparing it to the "Straight White Boys Texting" Tumblr blog. The same day, The Young Turks YouTube channel uploaded a discussion about the ethics of public shaming online and the Bye Felipe feed (shown below).
On October 31st, the women's interest blog Ms. Magazine published an article written by Tweten titled "Why I Created Bye Felipe," which revealed that the main reasons for creating the Instagram feed were to commiserate with other women, show other men what women face online and "expose the problematic entitlement some men feel they need to exert over women." In the coming days, several news sites published articles about the Instagram feed, including Mashable, BuzzFeed and The Daily Dot.
