Sharing a screenshot of the conversation to Twitter, Flo said  ‘Don’t you just love men. No judging my opening question okay, it normally gets hilarious responses!’

She later added: ‘I would like to reiterate as some people don’t seem to understand.

‘I do not care if he doesn’t find my body type attractive. I care that he consciously chose to match with me just to be rude to me.’

The tweet has since racked up nearly 30,000 likes with many praising Flo’s opening and berating Ben’s response.

Now a size 22, Flo hopes to slim down to a size 16 one day, but is happy in her size and often shares gorgeous bikini selfies

It also caught the attention of Bumble, who responded by blocking Ben from the female-friendly app. 

‘Hi Flo! We’re so sorry this happened. Rude and abusive behaviour is never acceptable in the Hive, and we want you to know we’ve got your back. 

‘Our team has located this user’s profile and blocked him from our platform. If you have any questions, please feel free to DM us,’ they said in a tweet.

Flo first found fame on TikTok documenting her weight loss, and became known for the catchphrase ‘Hi, I’m Flo and I’m trying to fit back into my jeans’

FEMAIL has contacted Flo and Bumble for comment.    

Many were quick to praise Flo for her witty question and slick answer.  

‘Absolutely fantastic opening line. Grotesque and pathetic response,’ one person said. 

‘This is SUCH A GOOD opening question!!! Flo these men do not deserve your time of day,’ wrote another 

She now has more than 700,000 followers across TikTok, Twitter and Instagram after first posting videos out of lockdown boredom last year

‘The actual AUDACITY,’ commented a third.
