An inevitable twitter storm ensued, with many bachelors offering to date her, and other women complaining that if Stone was on the site, what hope do they have. Some of the funniest proposals coming from women celebs, as well as Perez Hilton tweeting about the whole thing being a clever ad for Bumble.
Bumble editorial director quickly responded saying they had found her account and have unblocked her.
There can only be one 👑 Stone. Looks like our users thought you were too good to be true. We’ve made sure that you won’t be blocked again. We hope that everyone in our community takes a sec to verify their profiles. (Catherine Tramell from Basic Instinct gets a pass today!)

Whether this was a real occurrence or a very smart ad campaign, it definitely brought lots of attention to the dating app which famously Allows only women to reach out to potential matches. No doubt #truth or #fake, the twitter attention will bring more singles to the site, which may not be a bad thing all around!
