Whitney Wolfe, co-founder of dating app Tinder, has filed a lawsuit against the company after a year of being forced to work with her abusive ex, Justin Mateen, and his slanderous attempts to bend her to his will, including calling her sexist slurs in front of her coworkers and subordinates both in and out of the workplace. During this time, her cohorts, including fellow co-founder and CEO Sean Rad, chose to side with the abuser and blame Wolfe for her own abuse, even going so far as to say that Mateen’s behavior was her responsibility.
These pictures detail only a tiny sliver of the terror Wolfe, a critical part of Tinder’s popularity, had to endure during her time working for the company.
Wolfe’s victim blaming boss can be tweeted @seanrad and her emotionally and mentally abusive ex @Justin_Mateen.
Please keep her in your hearts as she fights this legal battle, which is in itself a route that Wolfe never wanted to take. It is a decision, like her resignation, that she was coerced into despite her passion for Tinder, a project which she co-founded and would certainly not exist as it is without her.
