Natasha Aponte, a New York City-based model, used the popular app Tinder to arrange for hundreds of guys to meet her for a date at 6pm on Aug. 19 at Union Square in Manhattan.
Standing on a stage next to a DJ, Nick AM, Aponte whittled down the guys with questions about their body shape, looks and names; she also made them do physical challenges, reports ABC News.
However, some of the guys did not appreciate being tricked, notes New York Magazine:
“Half of you people here are in relationships, so those people should leave now,” Aponte continued. “Statistically, people who are on dating apps … half of them are in relationships. Those people should leave.” Men in the crowd started chanting “Shut the f*ck up.” Aponte also said anyone not comfortable being filmed should leave.
Aponte pulled off the stunt with Rob Bliss Creative, a viral-video agency, which filmed the infamous cat calling viral video from 2014 in which a woman walked down the streets of New York City while men called out to her. That video supposedly showed how horrible men behave.
Aponte referred questions to Rob Bliss Creative, who told New York Magazine: “We will be releasing something on Thursday with all relevant information.”
