Tired of fending off 2 am booty calls, random "hey's," and unsolicited dick pics? Never fear: There's a new tool that will respond to them all for you.
The Boy Bye Bot, created by comedian Hassan S. Ali, sends hilarious, nonsensical responses to anyone who texts it.
That means if you give that creeper at the bar the “Boy Bye” number instead of yours, he'll be texting a robot all night long. It’s basically an updated Rejection Hotline, for the texting generation.
The bot's responses include quirky questions, requests to donate to Planned Parenthood, and links to articles about fuckboys.
But the creators draw the line at harassment, which they said "sucks."
"This bot does not harass. It simply replies to incoming texts with automated funny replies and links to web content," they said on their website.
Ali collaborated with a few female friends on the project, after seeing how much time they spent fending off thirsty dudes.
"I see it regularly," he wrote in a post for Medium. "Female friends sharing how dudes they barely know text them cringey pick-up lines, send pics of their junk, or ask for nude photos. One of my female friends recently showed me all the guys on Tinder asking for her number right after matching."
Ali, who also created "Botline Bling," a Drake bot, decided to invent a new chatbot.
He created it using a DIY bot-building platform, and then worked with his female friends to brainstorm all the "game" your average fuckboy might try to spit. Ali told Paper Mag he programmed responses for every prompt he could think of — and planned ahead for contingencies.
"There are cases where guys text in stuff that I haven't planned for. In those cases, it'll trigger a random response like 'oh really?' or just 'hmm. interesting. tell me more,'" he said.
You can test out the bot by texting 1–626–GOODBYE (466–3293).
