Barry Diller Stands Behind Tinder and Its CEO Amidst Sexual Harassment Allegations

Despite an embarrassing lawsuit from a former co-founder, InterActiveCorp (IAC) chairman Barry Diller is standing Sean Rad, the CEO of Tinder. Whitney Wolfe, a co-founder who was stripped of her title, is currently suing Tinder for sexual harassment, naming Rad and chief marketing officer Justin Mateen as the main aggressors. IAC, which owns Tinder, offered a public statement almost immediately, in which they supported both Rad and Mateen, saying they believe that Ms. Wolfe’s allegations with respect to Tinder and its management are unfounded. Since then Diller has come out with even more force to show his approval of the Tinder CEO.  At the annual Allen Co. media and technology conference, Diller said, We’ve been doing an internal investigation that is not yet complete, but so far has not given us any reason to believe that the CEO was engaged in any negative practices. He went on to say the harassment case has not affected his confidence in Tinder as a company.  Mateen has been suspended from Tinder as IAC investigates Wolfes claims.  Artists rendition
