Pierre Fitch has taken to Twitter to vent his frustrations about Grindr after receiving a support-message saying his account had been permanently banned.
‘Is this for real I been banned for being my self is this becoming the new Facebook’
@Grindrsupport said that they had update his ticket, but Pierre threw back:
‘how long does it take to reply too look at 2 pictures seems long process’
Grindr eventually sorted the issue for the actor, but Fitch remarked:
‘Great but Customer Service should be your #1 Priority don’t ban unless you know the truth of the matter !! Thanks’
Facebook came under fire last week after it ban users who had posted a picture of two men kissing.
Admins for the Facebook group ‘Have A Gay Day’ had been banned after some users reported the above picture as being offensive. Facbeook claimed it “violates community standards.”
The social media giant then had a u-turn saying that the photo was removed in error and has since been restored.
