This Girls Tinder Story Has Gone Viral For The Most Awful Reason

Tinder has quickly become the best way to meet your Prince Charming, but in many cases you have to swipe past A LOT of frogs to get there.

One woman who can support this is Takara Allen, who found a big, cruel toad in the Tinder world.

They were chatting away, as you do, before he dropped a huge bombshell on the makeup artist.

‘Don’t think I’m a creep and I don’t wanna be offensive or anything but I was just looking [at] your insta photos and just curious, but have you ever thought about bleaching your skin?? You’d look so much prettier if you were whiter!’ he said to her.
Wow. Someone needs to tell him that the whole ‘no offense’ thing actually doesn’t make something not offensive!
Takara hit back in a lengthily Facebook post, which has now gone viral, where she shared how this made her feel.

‘”Don’t wanna be offensive.” How the F*** is this not offensive in your head?! Like literally how can you come to the conclusion that this is even true?

‘I’ve grown up hearing “You’d be prettier if you were lighter” and “You’re pretty for a black girl,” as if black women are just generally unattractive, and so it’s a surprise when one of us is’ [sic].

Unfortunately the 22-year-old has received some nasty critiscm since her post went viral to which she responded to via an Instagram post

In one post, she told her followers, ‘It can be very nerve wracking and intimidating to speak up about certain things and to take a stand against racism.

 

2.2k of you have joined me in the past day and I'm guessing most of you found me through the different articles that were written. I want to say a huge thank you to everyone who's been supporting me! It can be very nerve wracking and intimidating to speak up about certain things and to take a stand against racism. I've still been receiving quite a large amount or racist messages, death threats (you know who you are), and the typical "you're not even black" messages which I'm unfortunately used to, but all of your love and support outweighs it all. I feel like I've done the right thing standing up for myself and I hope at the very least I have helped at least a few other people gain the confidence to stand up for themselves. I don't know the majority of you, but I appreciate every single one of
