A woman who received a fat shaming message as a chat up line on a dating app shared her confusion on TikTok.

Em Sumners, 21, from Sydney, shared a video of a horrendous exchange over Tinder from a potential suitor named Mikey.

The mother-of-two, who is now in a relationship, shared the clip as a throwback to the often rough reality of online dating, garnering over 3.7 million views on TikTok in the process.

Viewers of the video were shocked at the harsh words of Mikey and confused at his simultaneous attempt to get Em’s attention romantically. 

Em Sumners was the unwitting victim of a Tinder troll and shared the fat shaming comment to her TikTok page

Sharing the exchange, Em revealed she was called ‘slightly obese’ in a clip that gained over 600 thousand likes

Em, who captioned the clip with a sarcastic ‘Thanks Mikey’, lip synced the lyrics ‘I found a guy, told me I was a star’ from Olivia Rodrigo’s song, All I Want, while showing the exchange on a green screen behind her.

In the Tinder message, Mikey had initiated the converstation by saying: ‘Hey baby put down that cupcake and sprint to my house.’

Em, confused, replied with: ‘Cupcake? haha’ and sent a meme of a confused child along with it.

Continuing with the same approach, Mikey then said: ‘You look like you hide cupcakes in your bedside table.’

Em’s confused response was shared by many of her followers who couldn’t understand what Mikey had hoped to gain

Unamused, Em asked: ‘The f*** is that supposed to mean?’

To which Mikey bluntly responded: ‘It means you’re slightly obese.’ 

While Em rolled her eyes and smiled to seemingly laugh at the ridiculous attempt to get her attention, commenters were quick to support her.

One person said: D’o straight men even like women? like I genuinely ask that question everyday.’

Another person agreed, saying: ‘I don’t get what would motivate someone to reach out and insult a stranger but still be down to f**k .’

Some people were outraged at Mikey’s blunt chat up lines and wondered why he had gone out of his way to insult Em

A third person was outraged and wrote: ‘He’s asking for sex and saying you’re fat at the same time, that’s messed up.’   

Other’s, however, saw the funny side, and commended Mikey for his approach.

One person said: ‘He never said any of those things are bad though.’

While another claimed: ‘But he said come over? Soooo he wants you.’

Some commenters commended Mikey for his ‘hilarious’ approach and thought he deserved praise 

And a third person simply said: ‘Mikey is literally the funniest guy ever.’

Other commenters were too focused on the mention of a cupcake drawer to say whether they thought Mikey had overstepped a line or not.

One person said: ‘A cupcake a day keeps the losers away.’

While someone else said: ‘Everyone is missing the bigger picture here…get you a gal with a cupcake drawer.’

And a third person agreed, saying: ‘I should actually keep cupcakes next to my bed. That’s a brilliant idea’

Other commenters thought Mikey’s mention of a cupcake drawer was inspirational and wanted their own versions
