Instagram Model Says She Was “Banned” From Tinder For Being Too “Hot”

Ah, to be so hot that people think you’re fake. What a dream—or is it? One 26-year-old Instagram-famous model, Holly Valentine, claims that Tinder deleted her account (which she said was premium, and for which she paid 86 dollars!) because they couldn’t envision a world in which her hotness could possibly exist.

She contacted Apple and Tinder and got no response.

And although it’s easy to joke here, it’s not cool to simply ban a human from a paid app because you didn’t do the due diligence to ensure she’s actually REAL. Still, people on Twitter had some thoughts—and you guessed it, most were not very nice.

#FirstWorldProblems?

There was a fair share of straight-up sexism. For one, just because a girl wears lingerie doesn’t mean she can’t have a relationship, silly. 

Jokes started coming in hot:

One person said she didn’t even need Tinder. Not sure if this tweet is nice or rude, though…
