Sometimes good shit happens on dating apps and sometimes a random person will take it upon themselves to make you feel like crap for no good reason. And that’s exactly what happened to Thea Lauryn Chippendale after she received a message from a stranger who told her that her ASOS mink lace dress “is not doing any favours.”
Chippendale posted the exchange on Twitter and behold, a big YIKES.
“Not gonna lie you’re a bit of a joke but that dress in the last photo is not doing any favours. Hope this helps.”
“Excuse me?” she replied.
“You heard !” he wrote back.
Is that… is that supposed to be flirting?
“Why did you feel like you needed to comment on it? Chippendale continued. “Is your head that far up our own arse that you thought your opinion mattered.”
To which he replied: “Literally had to tell you else I wouldn’t of slept. It’s awful you not reckon? Charity shop job! I tell you what… GROW UP! And show somewhere decent! Thanks. Hope this helps.”
What – and we can’t stress this enough – the actual shit?

Chippendale’s post went viral and she soon received a tonne of supportive comments from people around the world… including the crew at ASOS, the brand behind the dress.
“Here’s to finding our perfect match,” they wrote in reply to her tweet. “Thea babe, let’s talk. Check your DMS…”
And yesterday, this happened.
“Swipe right to see who had the last laugh…” ASOS tweeted.
That’s right, ASOS has added Chippendale’s picture to their website and it is absolute perfection.
“I’m absolutely gobsmacked that they’ve actually done it,” she told Radio 1 Newsbeat.
“I’ve had to pinch myself quite a few times to believe it’s real,” she added. “I’m still so shocked and amazed that they’ve put a picture of me on their website.”
