Online dating ain’t easy if you’re a celebrity.
Sharon Stone learned that the hard way when she created a profile on online dating app Bumble, only to get blocked because, essentially, no one believed it was really her.
“Your account has been blocked because we’ve received several reports about your profile being fake,” said the message Stone has received from Bumble, according to a screenshot she posted on Twitter.
“Hey @bumble, is being me exclusionary? Don’t shut me out of the hive,” Stone tweeted.
The incident, which propelled “Sharon Stone” to trending topic status on Twitter, prompted thousands of response from Stone’s fans, ranging from messages of support to attempts at humor to (surprise) dating offers.

Oh hey Sharon, I think we may have matched but when I went back to message, your account had gone. Ah well, wasn’t meant to be I guess! 😉

In any case, Stone seems to be serious about using Bumble, so hopefully her account gets reinstated soon. And if that doesn’t work, well, there’s always Tinder.
