The reason why Hinge chucked out Sam

Sam claims that the reason for their chuck-out from the dating app Hinge was because Hinge thought that someone or they was catfishing. Sam was on Watch What Happens Live show of Andy Cohen. They said:

“I’m still single, I’m on the front line with all the single people still and it’s been difficult. I’ve gone on all the apps and stuff.

“They chucked me off of it after one night because they thought I was a catfish pretending to be me.”

The TV presenter Andy then suggested to Sam to try out on Tinder. Andy said that they could verify the account and hence there would be no chances of being kicked out of it. Sam was happy and agreed to do so. They said:

“I need to, so I’m going to do Tinder!”

Hinge explained:

“Our community thought Sam Smith being on Hinge was too good to be true, and their profile was reported for being fake and impersonating them.”

The app also tweeted an apology to Sam and promised to verify on it. The company wrote:

“Sorry @SamSmith! We know you’re too good at goodbyes but give us a second chance at finding you (+ @Andy) someone special. We will verify your profile”

They followed it with a winking face emoji.
