9 Best Comebacks to Tinder’s Vanity Fair Rant

Publicity stunt or meltdown?

In case you missed it, Vanity Fair published an article entitled Tinder and the Dawn of the Dating Apocalypse in its Sept. 2015 issue. The article included interviews with Tinder users, and discussed the adverse affects of online dating and hookup culture.

Tinder responded with a 31-tweet diatribe against the magazine, and subsequently drew heavy criticism from Twitter users and media.

A few days ago, multiple media outlets reported that Tinder issued an apology that stated, in part: “Our intention was to highlight the many statistics and amazing stories that are sometimes left unpublished, and, in doing so, we overreacted.”

I half-expected Tinder to claim someone hacked its Twitter account and posted all those tweets. At the very least I thought they’d delete the whole tirade, especially since the company has apologized; but, as of this post, they’re all still there. Colleges will be in session again soon, and I bet a few marketing professors use these tweets as a case study for how to avoid tarnishing your brand’s voice.
