Ew.

BYE FELIPE IS a new Instagram account that collects the most terrible men on Tinder, and other dating sites.

It was set up by Alexandra Tweten just three weeks ago, but already has more than 75,000 followers.

Treten said her aim is to “compile harassing and hostile messages men send to women after being rejected or ignored”. She wrote in a post on Ms magazine’s blog:

Since creating Bye Felipe, it has become apparent that a standard trajectory of discourse with men online is this: Man hits on woman, woman rejects or ignores him, man lashes out with insults or even threats.

Treten wrote that she “uses humour to take away some of the power these insults may carry”.

She has also turned ‘Bye Felipe’ into part of the lexicon, for use – according to Urban Dictionary – when “a male says he’s leaving and you could really give two shits that they are”.

It seems to be working:
