A teenager with disabilities has had his bio removed from Tinder for “sexual content” related to a harmless joke.
The bio simply informed the reader that Niall is 19 and read:
I ride a wheelchair all day but I will ride you all night
The above was accompanied by a winking face emoji.
Looks like my @Tinder days are over https://t.co/P1LiSrOwv3 — Niall Taylor (@Niall Taylor)
The internet was amused but not the powers that be over at Tinder, who sent the young man a message explaining their reasons for removing the bio:
Hi, we removed your bio because it contained this policy violation: sexual content
The people were shocked and expressed their support in replies to Niall.
