Tinder CEO Fights Off Supermodels

TINDER-CEO-WITH-MODEL

Tinder’s parent company, The Match Group, is desperately trying to distance itself from Tinder co-founder Sean Rad after giving a disastrous interview to London’s Evening Standard. Apparently a supermodel was “begging” him for sex:

Match Group, which had its IPO today, has attempted to distance itself from Rad, keen to state that “Mr Rad is not a director or executive officer of the Company”. Although he is the CEO of Tinder. It seems Match Group have just swiped left…
