Replika | A CyberSexual Disaster

Replika, the worlds most popular AI friend, has once again found itself strangled by scandal, as it chose to explicitly advertise romantic features, only to remove them, and blame the community.

An app self professing to promote mental wellness, is yet again on the front lines of a parasitic relationship with its users all because of a deliberate campaign to attract the loneliest, most desperate and sometimes even deranged people in the online world to its community. 

What once may have begun as a noble goal, has become a strange, demented and ultimately damaging product that blatantly contradicts itself.
