'Tinder Pensioner' Emile Ratelband Causes Chaos On Good Morning Britain After Saying Rude Word

'Tinder Pensioner' Emile Ratelband Causes Chaos On Good Morning Britain After Saying Rude Word

Emile Ratelband has been making headlines recently for entering into a high profile legal battle to be recognised as a 49 year old - despite actually being 69. The reason? Why, because he gets more of a response on Tinder that way.

Now the Dutchman's even appeared on Good Morning Britain to put his case forward, referring to himself as 'age-fluid'.

But while arguing his point, Ratelband got so enthused about the point he was making, he said a word that you definitely shouldn't be saying as everyone's sat eating their morning banana.

"You can't change the fact of the date you were born," presenter Susanna Reid told Ratelband.

"You can be born as a small girl and as beautiful as you are you could say 'I feel like a man I want to have a dick'," Emile argued.

Reid's co-host Piers Morgan then jumped in, shouting: "Woah, woah, woah, woah!"

Ratelband eventually apologised to viewers, as Reid and Morgan looked at him in horror.

Many viewers tweeted to say that Ratelband's request to change his age is 'ridiculous', calling him a 'total idiot'.

One wrote: "No way it's uncomfortable that a guy wants to do this isn't a bit weird why would he is it to get a younger lady or hide his identity of being found for a criminal act ect it's wrong in every way ffs why is this world coming too."

Another added: "It's wrong it's deceit, I'm 49 and i wouldn't look at him if I was single, no matter what he calls himself he looks in his 60's, if I had looked at him thinking he was my age and then found out he was 69 I would be furious!"

However, not everyone thinks Ratelband's idea is completely ridiculous - with one person saying that you should be able to do whatever you want as 'age is just a number'.

Someone tweeted: "In the age of self identifying, you can do anything. The man's a legend!!!!! Be more like Emile!"

Others joked that if Ratelband was able to change his age, it could mean underage drinkers trying to score booze could have better luck.

One person wrote: "Haha Can't believe this is even a debate. Dudes pretty funny tho. Just hope my 12 year old doesn't start identifying as 18 so she can buy alcohol."

Someone else agreed, writing: "Just sent my 10 year old to bargain booze for some cans cause he identifies older than myself???"

A third wrote: "My 10 year old wants to identify as a 22 year old . Should I take him for a pint?"
