Tinder troll sacked after calling woman ‘fat pig’ in vile rant at being rejected09/29/2020
A woman has shared the vile abuse she received from a Tinder match after she politely declined to have sex with him.
Ebonie Sanderson, 26, shared the audio messages allegedly sent from the Sydney man to Instagram after declining his offer to meet up the day they matched.
In the voicemails, the 28-year-old man, who has since been identified by the Daily Mail as Thomas McGuirk, lashed out at Ebonie with abusive messages about her weight and look.
He said: "You're actually a fat f***ing pig. You know that? Thanks. You did waste my time.
"You're f***ing ugly. Your a** looks OKAY and you would have been one f*** and that would be it. You would have been just one f*** because you're a disgusting fat pig."
The man then defended himself and added: "Look at my f***ing face. I don't have to struggle to get laid. I especially don't need a FOUR like you to get laid.
"You just called me 'hot' five minutes ago."
Ebonie also exposed the text messages he sent and a picture of Thomas to remind other girls to report his dating profile.
She wrote: "This is what happens when you say NO or call out a man for being disrespectful!!!
"You apparently earn yourself the right to get verbally abused and fat-shamed on more than one platform.
"No I didn’t 'ask for it' and yes, I’m entitled to change my mind and tell someone I’m not interested anymore because I feel uncomfortable and intimidated by ones aggressive and forceful nature.
"If anyone comes across this man on dating apps or social media, please report him. I managed to video call and he answered and appeared to in fact be this very man in the picture…"
Her post on Instagram quickly gained attention including well-known feminists Clementine Ford and sex expert Nadia Bokody.
Another woman has since come forward with her own abusive messages that were allegedly sent by Mr McGuirk.
Erin Hinds, 26, spent a night with him but when she decided not to take things further two days later, was bombarded with derogatory messages.
Thomas, a tech worker at Sydney logistics firm Invenco, was eventually booted from his job on Saturday morning as a result.
Company owner Dave Scott told Daily Mail Australia he was "shocked and disgusted" by the messages and it was a "clear-cut decision" to sack him immediately.
He said: "I had a read-through of the contract and validated that it was an act of serious misconduct and that he was no longer fit for employment with us.
"There is just no place in our workplace for someone who treats women with that amount of disrespect.
"I have four daughters aged between 10 months and nine years old… so that was one of the first things I thought about, and my blood boiled to imagine someone ever speaking to one of my little girls like that."
Tinder has also confirmed his account has been removed from the dating app, according to news.com.au.
“We take the safety and security of our members very seriously and have a zero-tolerance policy for online harassment,” a spokesperson said.
“The profile in question was removed from Tinder after being reported.”
Ebonie told the site that she didn't expect her post to go viral.
"So many women resonated with this kind of sexist, abusive behaviour and it was really sad to discover just how real it is," she said.
"I also think us women often cater for this behaviour far too often, we’re so polite and let disrespectful men treat us this way without any consequences."
