I got "esta bomba puede matar a muchos gentes" [this bomb can kill many people] and a lot of very revolutionary statements in Spanish.. Is Duo trying to tell me something?

I think you meant "esta bomba puede matar a mucha gente", "gente" is fem, and it's only used in plural when you're referring to ethnias. It's usually used in singular, it's a "sustantivo colectivo" (collective noun?), that is, a word in singular that refers to a group of something. Like "forest": a group of trees. Viva la revolución, y suerte con el español.
