Here's a reminder than in an often-bitter world, revenge is in fact sweet. Remember Nick, the guy on Tinder whose racist, sexist rant went viral after a former friend put him on Facebook blast? Let me refresh your memory:

UGH.

Not all douchebags get what they deserve. But this one did.

Nick's conversation with a woman went viral after an acquaintance, Kevin, shared screenshots on Facebook, and it must have made its way to Tinder headquarters. Because last week, the company's VP of Communications & Brand Rosette Pambakian published an open letter "In Commemoration of National Pig Day," announcing that Nick has been banned. For life.

"We’re swiping you off the island," she wrote. "Tinder has a zero-tolerance policy on disrespect. No racist rants. No sexist pigs. No trolling. No jerks who can’t get over their own inadequacies long enough to have a decent conversation with another person on Tinder."

The snarky, awesome letter continues:

I was personally offended by what you said. Your words to that woman were an assault, not only on her, but on all of us. Every day, we work to rid our ecosystem of bad actors like you. Why anyone would choose to go out into the world and spread hate I will never understand, but you do not have that choice on Tinder. Hate is not an option and we will continue to fight it wherever it rears its ugly head.

You have a lot to learn, Nick. I see that you studied global business, and that you joined your school’s programs for young entrepreneurs and technology management. Great choices. Because you’ll need to search far and wide to find an organization that will employ you now. Not sure if you’ve heard, but more and more women are becoming successful entrepreneurs and business leaders. Clearly, you haven’t been paying attention. Women’s voices are only getting louder. So let me say this loud and clear: you and your kind are not welcome in our world.

And we have the power to keep you out of it.

I'm glad to see Tinder taking action against this kind of behavior. One Tinder douchebag down. Eighty-six million (an estimate) to go!
