Former Tinder Exec

Sues Tinder

For Sexual Harassment!

EXCLUSIVE

A former honcho at Tinder is suing the company she co-founded ... claiming her co-founders acted like frat boys and called her a whore.

It's pretty ironic -- Tinder is an online dating app best known for hooking people up who want to bang.

But Whitney Wolfe claims in a new lawsuit -- obtained by TMZ --  she was mercilessly brutalized by the other execs who wanted to remove her title because no one would take a site like Tinder seriously if they knew it was founded by a 24-year-old chick.

Wolfe says one of the execs made a romantic play for her and she eventually dated him ... but it didn't end well and she claims he then waged a harassment campaign against her.  She says he called her a whore in front of the CEO, imploring her not to look at him with "her ugly eyes."

She says the guy also texted her when he found out she was interested in someone else, saying, "I will s**t on him in life.  He can enjoy my leftovers."  She says she was also talking to some Muslim men and he texted her, "You prefer to social climb middle-aged Muslim pigs that stand for nothing."

And Wolfe says the guy referred to one of her girlfriends as "a liberal, lying desperate slut."

She says she was fired in retaliation.

Maybe there's an opening at Grindr.

5:45 PM PT -- Tinder says it immediately investigated Wolfe's claims and suspended the exec who sent her private messages "containing inappropriate content." However, a spokesman for the company says Wolfe's allegations about the rest of Tinder's management are baloney.

This chick is full of it. I can link you to countless SUCCESSFUL sites and businesses founded by women. Sounds to me that she was the aggressor and got shot down. I've seen it before, when a guy is turned down, he moves on. When a woman's advances are denied, she festers and gets angry and makes up as much s**t as she can just for revenge.

Men who act like that towards a woman who have dumped them, are usually is struggling with his own sexuality. He's angry because he cannot come to terms with his true self.

One quick subpeona of phone records will prove if her allegations are true. Because, your texts do not disappear when you delete them. They just get stored by the phone company.

A grown man acting like a baby because it didn't work out with a woman. Total testosterone overload. Bet he drives a bubba truck and drinks too much alcohol.

She broke the first rule of not dating your co-workers. I'm confused by the article, first it states that the frat boy network were calling her a whore then it states it was the guy she dated.

She'd be more credible if she didn't date the guy. She just seems bitter.
