Woman Banned from Tinder (then Re-Instated) after Sharing Selfies ‘As a Clown’
A woman on Tinder recently decided to replace existing photos of herself with photos of her in full-costume as her alter-ego, Kazoo the Clown.
Twenty-five-year-old Jess Harkin, from Ireland, says she’d like to find a “clown man” with a similar sense of humor, and uploaded six photos of herself wearing the clown costume.
She also changed her bio to read, “I heard you were ‘just looking for fun’?  Well pal, the party has arrived!!  Where can I set down this birthday cake and chocolate milk?
She says she was flooded with messages, until Tinder banned her profile due to “activity that violates our Terms of Use.”
Jess, who is also a star on TikTok (@jessicamagician), is frustrated by the ban, saying, “I’ve seen girls with more make-up than this on.”  She says she appealed Tinder’s decision, and after one refusal followed by months of waiting, they reopened her account on February 18th.
