Adolf Hitler Joins Tinder — Girls Say ‘Heil!’

Adolf Hitler is on Tinder. I repeat, Adolf Hitler is on Tinder.

Well, not really because, you know, Hitler took his own life in 1945 to avoid being caught by the Allied forces. There is, however, someone impersonating a 22-year-old ‘Adolf’ on the popular dating app, and some screen grabs from Reddit suggest he’s done quite well for himself too.

Not much is known about this anonymous person who spent a month posing as the man responsible for the genocide against the Jews and other minority groups, except that he uses AT&T, and he should probably get an external battery charger.

I’m not quite sure if the Führer would’ve fared well in the modern battle known as online dating, but he did get around in his day. Hitler managed to have not one but two fiances, as well as an unknown number of companions and lovers. He also married the striking Eva Braun, who, while obviously deranged, was way out of his league. Let’s overlook the fact that two of his former lovers committed suicide and two others attempted it; it’s not unreasonable to assume that Hitler would’ve cleaned up on Tinder.

What’s most worrisome of all, I think, is that women actually swiped right when given the option of matching with this bad boy.

Seriously ladies?

On second thought, it’s clearly the hipster mustache.
