Work and play got a bit too close for one Australian journalist this week as a felon she recently covered in court tracked her down on a dating app.
Jordan Bissell, from Brisbane’s 7NEWS, on Thursday shared to Twitter that she had recently lived one of every young court reporter’s worst nightmares.
“Yep, one day back on Tinder and I’m getting off it,” she tweeted with an alarming picture.
The picture attached showed a Tinder message from man named Jake that read: “Jordan I’m pretty sure you reported on my court appearance”.
Colleagues and other from the media were quick to comment on Bissell’s predicament.
“Give him a chance,” fellow 7NEWS reporter Mylee Hogan wrote in jest.
“This is nightmare fuel,” Andrew Macfarlane, Australia Correspondent for 1 News New Zealand said.
Others said it was a great “conversation starter”.
