THE LATEST INTERNET trend seems to come in the form of people posing with tigers, who then use their photos as bait to lure in potential hookups on Tinder. I guess it’s some sort of symbolic way for people to express:
- I’ve got a soft side, look at me cuddling with this cute animal!
- But I’ve also got a badass side, and am not afraid to lie with a wild beast!
- When was the last time you touched a tiger? Exactly. I’m better than you. And that’s why you should date me.
Maybe some people would fall for this ruse, but educated Tinder users (which, let’s be honest — are probably non-existent) should be aware that these people are supporting establishments where animals are mistreated, neglected, and abused.
