The gravitational wave (GW) signal (GW170817) from the coalescence of binary neutron stars was simultaneously seen throughout the electromagnetic (EM) spectrum from radio waves to gamma rays. We point out that this simultaneous detection rules out a class of modified gravity theories, and provides another indirect evidence for the existence of dark matter.
