Bitstrips Reportedly Raises $15 Million Because Life Isn't Fair

There is no god.

It's being reported this morning that the worst app in the universe, Bitstrips, has raised $15 million in venture capital funding.

In case you're lucky enough to not have an idiot friend that shares you Bitstrips until you want to strip your eyes from your head, it's a "social" app on Facebook that allows you to create a little cartoon rendering of yourself and your partner or your friends or your pets or anything else in your sad little life, in a bid to animate and caption the mundane.

They're nauseating. They're condescending. They're dumb. You should hate them.

The real question is why a stupid little art app on Facebook needs $15 million to continue ruining everyone's Facebook experience. Here's a handy guide on how to block them.

Buckle up, readers. Bistrips are in for the long haul. [TechCrunch via Valleywag]

    Top right corner: Hide all posts from BitStrips. Why do some idiots think they need to post these all goddamn day long?

    Bitstrips was for me one of the best startups in 2013 (http://greatpreneurs.com/top-5-startups-2013/). I guess these 15M are gonna help them. :D

    top right corner: closeface book account, best thing i ever did

    Someone just sounds jelly. How does them making money affect you?

      Because we'll see more of their shitty comics all over the place. Did you really think that question through?

          Agreed, I was just answering his question. Having to disable the stupid thing in your Facebook settings (is it per-friend or once for your whole account?) is a way their making money affects others.

            Yeah it isn't much of a sacrifice though really. Also, I have to say the article did seem a trifle butt-hurty

    I not a big facebook user, but I never see any of these things that people complain about. Finally realised that it's because I use the iOS facebook app. No creepy ads for single women, no game notifications or other weird things popping up. Just a clean newsfeed and timeline. My guess is that facebook didn't want to give apple a 30% cut on any ads in the app.
