NEW YORK – Dozens of dudes showed up to Union Square for Tinder dates on Sunday — only to learn they were all there to meet the same woman, and she wanted them to battle it out “Hunger Games”-style for her heart.

One Twitter user recounting his version of events says he met a woman named Natasha through the hookup app and she invited him to meet her at the public space to watch her friend DJ — but he arrived to a totally surreal scene.

“I make my way to Union Square. Eat a hot dog and look over by this open lot by 17th Ave and there is a stage and a DJ and about 100 ppl and cameras and sh-t and I think well this is some random ass Manhattan sh-t,” wrote @bvdhai.

The article goes on to state the following:

“Eventually I see a girl moving towards backstage with two enormous bodyguards in sunglasses and realise it’s her and I’m thinking WHAT THINE F–KETH IS GOING ON,” he continued.

Natasha then took to the mic and told the assembled men that she knows they all came from Tinder.

“Then she says I’ve invited you all here for a chance to go on a date with me and proceeds to give a hunger games speech about what its gonna take to date her,” @bvdhai recalled.

“Every man in the crowd looks down and mimes WHAT IN THE NAME OF SCOOBY DOO THE IS THIS S-IT to themself.”

At that point, he says, he left — but others who stayed told Gothamist that Natasha began discarding men and making the rest compete to go on a date with her.

Below is the account @bvdhai posted on Twitter:

Another disappointed suitor, Nicholas, shared more details with

Nicholas, 28, from Union City, New Jersey, said that he stayed so he could “look her right in the eye to see if she actually stated her premise in a clear way. Never happened.”

He showed Gothamist a series of messages from Natasha about a free DJ set in Union Square, long after they initially matched. “insta @natashavaponte if you forgot” she added, with a smiling, sweaty emoji.

“The gist of it was she wanted to do Live Tinder. Folks were pretty mad,” Nicholas said, adding that she appeared to have security and staff helping her with the show. “And she started calling the different characteristics she doesn’t like. ‘If you’re Puerto Rican and support Trump leave!’ ‘If you have a long beard leave.’ Then she did a competition.”

A video shows a group of men lined up for a race.

“The majority of the group, like 95 percent, were like aaahhh, watching as the fucking idiots fell in line to her demands to do push ups and run…She did a live swipe line, right and left. I left at that point.”
