’ And wouldn’t it be nice if there was no way he would think you were desperate or weird if you did?A year after she was ousted from Tinder and nine months after she sued the company for sexual harassment, Wolfe is back with a dating app of her own, dubbed Bumble.Police only caught up with him when he pulled into the forecourt of the Audi dealership.
“I would say ‘I’m just going to go up to him,’ and all my girlfriends were like ‘Oh no no no no, you can’t do that,'” she says.On a sunny May morning in NYC, Whitney Wolfe smoothes her hair (golden) takes a sip of her iced coffee (black) and points across the leafy patio at a handsome guy sitting with a friend.“You swiped right in your head just now,” she says.She said: "The police were aware by the rate at which the accused was coming towards them that he was travelling at a high speed." Another car also had to pull in to let him past as he sped off.Mrs Brooks said: "The police made off after the accused, and their vehicle reached speeds of 120 miles an hour keeping his vehicle in view." The prosecutor said it was accepted that there was "an element of catch-up" in the speed reached by the police car.
And while the whole messy incident has been held up to illustrate the challenges women face in a notoriously bro-friendly tech culture, Wolfe stops short of calling out sexism in tech.
