Bumble CEO Whitney Wolfe Herd has responded to an explosive Forbes report detailing a sexist, sordid culture at the dating app's parent company Badoo.




"I am saddened and sickened to hear that anyone, of any gender, would ever be made to feel marginalized or mistreated in any capacity at their workplace," said Wolfe Herd.




She emphasised that many of the anecdotes described in the Forbes piece were from before Bumble's creation in 2014.

Bumble CEO Whitney Wolfe Herd has responded to a Forbes report on Bumble's parent company Badoo, which detailed lurid stories from the startup's earlier years.
Forbes' report centered on Badoo and its CEO Andrey Andreev, a Russian billionaire who holds a majority stake in Bumble and was closely involved in its creation.
Having spoken to 13 former employees, Forbes reported on drug-fueled parties, software updates named after porn stars, and inappropriate remarks made about women, including by Andreev himself.
