Thea Lauryn Chippendale went viral on Twitter after she shared a screenshot of a Tinder DM from George, who went out of his way to insult her appearance and outfit.
The 20-year-old posted two side-by-side images to Twitter: Her and George’s conversation and the picture to which he refers. Thea captioned it:
“Not gonna lie you’re a bit of a joke,” George wrote to her, unprovoked,” but that dress in the last photo is not doing any favors. Hope this helps,” he added alongside a thumbs-up Emoji.
When Thea replied with “Excuse me?” George snapped back, “You heard!”
“Why did you feel like you needed to comment on it?” asked Thea. “Is your head that far up your own a*se that you thought your opinion mattered?”
George explained that he simply couldn’t help himself. “Literally had to tell you else I wouldn’t of slept,” he wrote. “It’s awful you not reckon? Charity shop job I tell you what.. GROW UP! And shop somewhere decent ! Thanks. Hope this helps.”
The photo and dress in question was this beautiful rose-pink mid-length lace number, which is from ASOS.
Here’s a link to the dress on ASOS, in case you’re as big a fan as the rest of us.
Within two days’ time, Thea’s tweet had racked up nearly 95,000 likes and over 7300 retweets and comments from people voicing their support and encouragement.
The good news is that ASOS found out about Thea’s bad Tinder experience and the company decided to treat her to a little something for her trouble
ASOS brought Thea to their headquarters in London and gave her a makeover and custom photoshoot…
“Since the tweet, the CEO of ASOS, Nick Beighton, invited me down to their HQ where him and the amazing ASOS staff gave me a tour of how ASOS works and all the different departments they have,” Thea told Bored Panda. “They also gave me a makeover and I got to have a little photoshoot with their photographers—it was an amazing experience.”
But that’s not all, they also put Thea on their website…
And added her Tinder pic to the page for the infamous dress she was wearing

Thea was pretty psyched about being a bonafide ASOS model
The best revenge is living well, but it helps when you’ve got a clothing company on your side.
