Man sues social media company after hundreds of strangers show up at his home, workplace for sex

Posted: Updated:
NEW YORK -

A New York man files a lawsuit against the social media company Grindr after he claims thousands of strangers are showing up to his home and workplace, looking for sex.

According to CNN, (http://cnnmon.ie/2pmS6pd) 32-year-old Matthew Herrick says he is the victim of an elaborate revenge scheme, set up by an ex-boyfriend of his.

The complaint was filed in January and says an ex-boyfriend of his, who Herrick says he also met on the social media platform, says the ex is creating fake accounts since October 2016.

Herrick says his ex-boyfriend allegedly invites men to Herrick's apartment and his workplace, looking for sex. The reports also note that his ex-tells strangers that he has HIV

In a statement, Grindr said it's "committed to creating a safe environment through a system of digital and human screening tools, while also encouraging users to report suspicious and threatening activities. While we are constantly improving upon this process, it is important to remember that Grindr is an open platform. Grindr cooperates with law enforcement on a regular basis and does not condone abusive or violent behavior."

Lawyers representing the social media company asked for the case to be moved to a federal court.
