Fashion designer Marc Jacobs took to his Instagram account on Monday night (October 26) to announce that he is done with Grindr, a gay dating and hook-up app.
The 52-year-old designer’s announcement came hours after Page Six ran a story that he hosted a “wild” 10-person orgy with men he invited via Grindr.
“Wild??? I’d say ‘MILD’. And to whichever guest benefitted from calling this misinformation into the Post, I only wish you good health, happiness, and a long life to enjoy taking advantage of the kindness of strangers and talking shit about others. #reallyqueen?” Marc said in response to the article.
In Marc‘s announcement that he is quitting the app, he wrote: “Goodbye (for now) Grindr! It was fun for ‘group’ get togethers, but, what really excites me is my work!” He also added, “Yup. I’m gay. Sometimes I enjoy sex. Sometimes! #stillonlyhuman #callmemarc #yourstotry…maybe.”
Over the summer, Marc accidentally uploaded a fully unclothed photo to Instagram instead of sending it in a direct message.
