She later added, “I would like to repeat it as some people don’t seem to understand.

It also caught the attention of Bumble, who responded by blocking Ben from the female-friendly app.

‘Our team found this user’s profile and blocked him from our platform. If you have any questions, feel free to DM us, ‘they said in a tweet.

Flo told FEMAIL exclusively: ‘I’ve been through it before, body shaming is unfortunately quite common in dating apps even though the other person has to swipe to match with me … just to be rude when they just could swipe the other way.

‘I totally understand that not everyone will find me attractive – I don’t expect them to, they can just get on with their day.

‘I was really surprised when Bumble banned his profile. It was totally unexpected but really appreciated and has restored my confidence in the app.

“They also messaged me privately to see if there is anything else they can do to help me and reassure me that body shaming is within their” ban policy. “

‘It is nice to see that dating apps support people when they feel marginalized.

“ The support from people on Twitter has been super nice, so many people who reached out said they’ve had similar experiences too, but they’ve come out stronger and know they’re worth so much more than an annoying comment.

In January, Bumble banned all forms of body shaming on the app, including fat-phobic, proficient, racist, coloristic, homophobic, or transphobic language.

They also encourage their community to report bad behavior through their in-app reporting to enforce this particular set of guidelines.

In 2019, Bumble introduced Private Detector, a feature that uses artificial intelligence to automatically detect and blur unsolicited nude photos. It then alerts the recipient who can choose to view, delete, or report the image.

Naomi Walkland, Bumble’s Head of UK & Ireland, told FEMAIL: ‘At Bumble we have always been clear about our mission to create a friendlier, more respectful and equal space on the internet. The key to this has always been our zero tolerance policy for racist and hate speech, offensive behavior and intimidation.

“We believe in being explicit when it comes to the type of behavior that is not welcome in our app and with these changes we are making it clear that body shaming is not acceptable on Bumble.

“We always want to be at the forefront of education and give our community the opportunity to learn to recognize this language and improve.

“However, we will not hesitate to permanently remove someone from the app in the event of repeated incidents or particularly harmful comments.”
