Bumble has banned one of its male users after he ghosted a women he met on the app and updated his profile with a fat-shaming comment.
A recent article for Elite Daily‘s “Boom, Ghosted” column explains how a woman (being called Angelina) had matched with a trainee pilot on female-focused dating app Bumble.
Co-founders Neil Raman and Michelle Li told the Daily Dot that the idea for the app emerged after they watched a viral video showing men mocking a woman for her size.
They were disappointed in how often this happens in the world of dating, especially when they both knew men who specifically wanted to date plus-size women.
This week, a CEO at another dating site, who asked not to be identified, described to BI just how frustrating the ban has become.
He has 0,000 or more to spend on ads, but Facebook declines to take his money.
We agreed to keep this executive anonymous because he is hoping to repair his relationship with Facebook.
The problem is that several major dating site brands — like Zoosk, and e Harmony — are allowed to advertise on Facebook.
There are certain kinds of photos users of dating apps tend to loathe, and the suggestive mirror selfie tends to be at the top of that list, somewhere near photos of guys holding a fish and gym selfies.The pair began talking on the app, exchanged numbers and arranged to meet a few weeks later.
