Accessibility Comments: 

This appears to be usable with VoiceOver. The only problem that I have encountered so far is with embedded videos. VoiceOver doesn't find the play icon that is overlayed on these videos unless you tap directly on it. However, the page also contains a link to view the video on YouTube, and this does work fine. I've not created a BuzzFeed account yet, so haven't tested the features of the app that are only available once you login (adding comments and giving reactions to articles).

VoiceOver Performance: 

VoiceOver reads most page elements.

Button Labeling: 

Most buttons are clearly labeled.

Usability: 

There are some minor accessibility issues with this app, but they are easy to deal with.
