Pipay Kipayy was dismayed after finding out someone had used her photos to create an account on Grindr.
The comedian was first notified of it by a Twitter user.
The profile created used the name “serbisan kita” and was listed as 18 years of age.
“Not good looking so don’t expect too much,” the entry read.
Pipay wasn’t thrilled with the poser tactics and urged people to stop using his photos.
Stop using my photos!!!! https://t.co/k43zZ7dDej

Grindr is a gay dating app that allows anyone to create a profile with just about any photo.
Pipay is a proud member of the LGBT community and has supported former vice president Leni Robredo’s presidential campaign.
He became a fixture on social media for his videos during the height of the pandemic.
In an interview with Esquire, he detailed his past experience with bullying due to his congenital hand deformities.
“Ang sakit, bata ako noon!” he said.
“Bakit yung mga kapatid ko kumpleto naman yung mga daliri?” he added.
Pipay struggles with specific tasks that require the use of fingers.
“Dahil hindi normal yung kamay ko, nahihirapan ako sa mga bagay-bagay. Kunwari PE class at kailangan mag push ups, hindi ko kaya dahil masakit. Hindi ko rin kaya mag instruments. Noon, na-bully ako nang na-bully. Yung confidence ko, para siyang kandila na naubos hanggang sa nawala yung apoy.”
Bullying only became prevalent when he started schooling, he shared.
“Okay ako sa friends ko sa street namin, hindi ko naramdaman na may iba sa akin. But then, lahat ng nabuo kong confidence noong bata ako, nawala noong nag school ako.
“Sobrang miserable noong elemantary when it comes to surroundings, sa mga naging kaibigan. Pero that doesn’t mean na wala akong friends.”
