Sharon Stone calls out dating app Bumble for blocking her account: ‘Don’t shut me out of the hive’

Actor’s account was deleted after false reports it was a fake

Sharon Stone claims Basic Instinct director told her to hand him her underwear

Sharon Stone has complained to the dating app Bumble after her account was blocked from the platform.

The actor called out the company on Twitter for deleting her account after other users reported it as fake.

Stone wrote: “I went on the @bumble dating site and they closed my account. Some users reported that it couldn’t possibly be me! Hey @bumble, is being me exclusionary? Don’t shut me out of the hive.”

She then posted a screenshot of a message that read: “You’ve been blocked.”

The full notice said: “We’re committed to keeping Bumble safe, which means we have to enforce certain rules when our values are being violated. Your account has been blocked because we’ve received several reports about your profile being fake.”

Stone was previously married to newspaper editor Phil Bronstein for six years before their divorce in 2004.

Her film credits include Basic Instinct, Casino and The Quick and the Dead.

In December, Stone claimed the director of Basic Instinct, Paul Verhoeven, told her to hand over her underwear before filming the famous leg-crossing scene in the 1992 film.​
