American dating app Bumble has apologized to Kenyan attorney Donald Kipkorir after he discovered a profile bearing his details on the online platform.
Kipkorir wrote to the Texas-based dating site through Twitter, saying he would never join an online dating app given that he is a devout Catholic.
“Dear @BumbleSupport@bumble.. I had never heard of Bumble until today when a friend of mine sent me my following profile showing I am on Bumble,” he wrote.
“As a Roman Catholic, I can’t join a Dating Site. Kindly block the person using my profile picture below & my name Donald.”
Kipkorir tied the knot with Noni Weru a few years ago and the couple has a child together. He proposed to her aboard an Emirates flight in 2017 and held a traditional marriage ceremony months later.
Bumble wrote back to the flamboyant lawyer apologizing for the fake account.
“We’re sorry this is happening! Fake profiles go 100% against our guidelines. Please send us a DM so we can find this account. We’re sorry this is happening! Fake profiles go 100% against our guidelines. Please send us a DM so we can find this account. 💛,” Bumble said in a statement.
Bumble is the second-most popular dating site in the United States after Tinder.
Profiles of potential matches are displayed to users, who can "swipe left" to reject a candidate or "swipe right" to indicate interest.
In heterosexual matches, only female users can make the first contact with matched male users, while in same-sex matches either person can send a message first.
Nothing wrong with dating site mbona anazidharau hivo. People have met their spouses on dating sites
Well he could still allow them to use his image if they pay him and he could use the site for free :-)
His catholic faith would not allow his to use such a site.That is unless he loses the faith...He might not even"faithfully" agree to payment from a site of which services he objects/What say you?
Not true. It wasn’t fake until you got caught.
