Judge Judy, goddess of the law, has now heard a case regarding Grindr. I guess means even the squarest among us are catching on to online hookups, but more importantly, it means that this exchange between Judy and a Grindr-using college student exists on the internet, and seeing such a thing is a dream I never knew I had until it came true.
Adam Murphy, the defendant in the case, found himself being sued by his sugar daddy-like Grindr companion for refusing to pay back a loan. “We met on a, um … social website,” he tried to explain. “It’s a social app that tells you where homosexual males are and their proximity. To where you are.”
Well, I suppose that’s a chaste way of putting it.
The pair had their first in-person meeting at Applebee’s (because of course), and the drama over the money only started when Murphy decided the sugar daddy was getting “creepy” and called things off.
The best moment of the entire thing is when Murphy insists that he was just on the website to make friends and Judy sees right through that “wholesomeness” front and calls bullshit, forever affirming my continued choice to watch her show instead of the “Real Housewives” on the gym TV when I’m on the elliptical. She is so worth it. [Gawker]
