In another episode of Celebrities Are Just Like Us, we take a look at the universal quest for love and connection. To put it plainly, it’s hard to meet people in real life nowadays. That’s why online dating, on sites like Match.com or apps like Tinder, has become so popular.
Ben Affleck’s experience on elite dating app Raya has just gone viral as TikTok user and actress Nivine Jay revealed on May 3 that the A-lister had allegedly slid into her DMs after she rejected him on the app. Jay says she only unmatched him because she thought he was a catfish, but soon after the Hollywood star sent her a bold video response on Instagram. In the video, shared to Jay’s TikTok, a messy-haired Affleck looks into the camera and says, “Nivine, why did you unmatch me? It’s me!” Though the whole story hasn’t been verified, it has certainly gone viral. “Sorry Ben,” she captioned the video.
