Tinder co-founder sues the company

  • Tech startup Tinder co-founder Whitney Wolfe is now suing the company after fellow co-founder and ex-boyfriend Justin Mateen misbehaved with her. 

    Reports suggest that Wolfe has accused Mateen of calling her a "whore" in front of the company's CEO and she is no longer the co-founder since he said she is too young to be one. 

    The New York Daily News notes that the 24-year-old called the atmosphere that she was subjected to as being "misogynist."

    The company suspended Mateen after the story broke; the lawsuit includes text messages from Mateen that are inappropriate and the media notes that the company cannot dismiss them.
