Rupi Kaur Accused Of Stealing Gay Men's Grindr Bios

Rupi Kaur Accused Of Stealing Gay Men's Grindr Bios

The poetry world has been rocked to its core by another stunning controversy.

Bestselling poet Rupi Kaur has become entangled in controversy after several readers have pointed out similarities between her new poetry collection, room for cream, and their own Grindr bios.

The first flag was raised by Nick Bilson, a gay man from Pittsburgh visiting New York for two weeks.

Bilson’s bio:

in brooklyn til fri
cannot host
pls be 6’0+ :)

Kaur’s poem, “Travel”:

in brooklyn until friday
cannot host
please be
six feet smile
travel is beauty

“It just looks so weird written out like that,” said Bilson. “And what the fuck is that line she added at the end? I really respect her work and her career but she has simply crossed a line.”

Upon hearing about Bilson’s situation, Greenpoint resident Grant Mendez noticed that his bio, too, had been a target.

Mendez’s bio:

Musician in the big city
Follow me IG @gqmendez1994x

Kaur’s poem, “Melody”:

i am musician in
the big apple
please follow
me
@gqmendez1994x

- rupi kaur

“I mean, I guess I can’t be mad that she’s plugging my Insta in her poetry collection,” added Mendez. “I’ll take the followers. At least I’m not buying these ones.”

Devin Smith, the final target, regrets that his bio was selected by Kaur.

Smith’s bio:

no fats no fems lol

Kaur’s poem, “Picky”:

no fat people
no feminine people
haha

- rupi kaur

“I swear I’m not a dick, it’s just a preference. WHY did Kaur pick mine?” questioned Smith. “That little ‘haha’ at the end is really fucking me up.”

When reached for comment, Kaur had a simple explanation: “baby girl’s gotta meet her editor’s deadlines lmao - rupi kaur.
