Tinder Co-founder Sued For Sexual Harassment, Suspended

One of the co-founders of Los Angeles-based dating app developer Tinder, Justin Mateen, has been sued by a former executive for sexual harassment, and has been suspended. In a lawsuit filed Monday in the Superior Court of the State of California, Los Angeles, former Tinder Vice President of Marketing Whitney Wolfe accused Mateen of a series of incidents and harassing emails, after a romantic relationship between the two went south. Among other accusations, the lawsuit claims Mateen repeatedly called Wolfe a "whore" in front of CEO Sean Rad. The lawsuit includes a lengthy number of texts and emails of what appear to be highly inappropriate comments and threats send to Wolfe by Mateen.
