Actress pranks Tinder with fake profiles of serial killers

Actress Natalie Walker has created fake Tinder profiles for Charles Manson and Aileen Wuornos to see how many people would swipe right on serial killers.
Would you swipe right on a serial killer?

Charles Manson and Aileen Wuornos have recently joined Tinder thanks to actress Natalie Walker, who is conducting a three day social experiment on how many people would swipe right on the infamous criminals.

Walker created two separate sham profiles with old photos of the two killers. She created Manson’s first and filled it with photos of him in the late ‘60s since he resembles the modern hipster.

She also changed his name to Charlie thinking it’d make him more discreet, and wrote “I live the Inkwell and Valencia filters. Also I want to control you,” on the profile’s bio.

“There’s a Charles Manson series on Lifetime going on right now, and there’s the hottest actor playing Charles Manson,” Walker told the Daily News. “So I disappeared down a Wikipedia hole of Charles Manson and realized, ‘Oh, Charles Manson in his prime looks like every guy in Williamsburg.’”

 

The profile took three days to get a match, according to Walker. The girl who matched was wearing a flower crown and was dancing in one of her photos — “Manson’s type,” according to Walker.

During their brief chat, Walker made a few references to Helter Skelter and Squeaky Fromme, by talking about race and claiming Charlie was the son of God. Yet, the match never identified who she was “talking” to.

Since Manson didn’t have much success on Tinder, Walker then created a fake profile for Wuornos, who killed seven men in Florida between 1989 and 1990.

She filled it with photos of her in the late ‘80s and wrote a clever bio: “I identify with Charlize Theron as imperator Furiosa in ‘Mad Max: Fury Road.’ I want to kill white men.” Theron is referenced since she played Wuornos in the 2003 film “Monster.”

 

Unlike Manson’s, Wuornos’ profile got 12 matches in just eight minutes. The conversations were also very different. One of the users who messaged her first said they got aroused by the photos.

“Would you judge me harshly if I got hard just from looking at you? *blush you’re beautiful,” the match wrote.

Walker said that all other Matches also messaged her first. One of the matches even thought Aileen was actually Theron. Walker said the man asked, “Are you Charlize Theron?”

Another match started the conversation with, “How do you take your coffee in the morning?” To which Walker immediately responded, “I take my coffee black, if I were to be in death row, my last meal would be a cup of black coffee.” Walker made that comment since Wuornos’ last meal was in fact a cup of black coffee.

“It was really important for me to see what [happened] if you used a woman and that ended up being really eye opening,” Walker said. “I mean, I expected it to be easier with men since they’re not as in danger of being victimized, so they can just swipe right as they please.”

This is not Walker first time trolling with mobile apps. Earlier this year she used Yelp to rate old dates.

“I’m just a super weird person and so I love to do silly things and it’s usually to make friends laugh,” Walker said.
