You’d think that people would know by now that you simply cannot get away with being an arsehole on Tinder/Facebook/Twitter/any type of social media – at least not while using your real name and photo anyway.

This nasty bastard named Nick found that out the hard way this week. Here’s how the story played out:
As if that wasn’t bad enough, another girl then turned up and shared her own similar experience with him:
It goes without saying that you’d have to be a grade A douchebag to react like this to a girl because she didn’t reply fast enough or isn’t doing what you want her to do. But this just goes to show how easy it is to have it all backfire in your face in the age of social media.
Below is a post statement issued by Rosette Pambakian, Tinder’s VP of Communications and Brand:
Hey Nick (and anyone who behaves like you),
We’re swiping you off the island.
Tinder has a zero-tolerance policy on disrespect. No racist rants. No sexist pigs. No trolling. No jerks who can’t get over their own inadequacies long enough to have a decent conversation with another person on Tinder.
I was personally offended by what you said. Your words to that woman were an assault, not only on her, but on all of us. Every day, we work to rid our ecosystem of bad actors like you. Why anyone would choose to go out into the world and spread hate I will never understand, but you do not have that choice on Tinder. Hate is not an option and we will continue to fight it wherever it rears its ugly head.
You have a lot to learn, Nick. I see that you studied global business, and that you joined your school’s programs for young entrepreneurs and technology management. Great choices. Because you’ll need to search far and wide to find an organization that will employ you now. Not sure if you’ve heard, but more and more women are becoming successful entrepreneurs and business leaders. Clearly, you haven’t been paying attention. Women’s voices are only getting louder. So let me say this loud and clear: you and your kind are not welcome in our world.
And we have the power to keep you out of it.
