Mating habits have always been a bit of a puzzle to us, and a text exchange between a D-list designer and an SNL comedian offers even more mysteries.

Leah McSweeney is the founder of the “Married to the MOB” female streetwear line. On her podcast this week, she brought up a recent text exchange she had with Saturday Night Live comedian Michael Che.

“I met a comedian. I’ve dealt with a few comedians. They are the worst,” McSweeney said. “Michael Che is so arrogant and so rude and disrespectful that I cannot even believe that someone … You’re like a D-list celebrity to me! Whatever!

She continued: “Why are you on a dating app if you hate women? Literally, you’ve never met me and you’re texting me like I’m a stupid bitch … Texting me and being mad rude. You’re trying to fuck with me? I don’t get it. You’re just a fucking dork wearing Air Force Ones [sneakers] at the end of the day. … Like, fuck you! I just can’t deal.”

But a series of text exchanges between the two, published by Page Sixdon’t appear to support McSweeney’s allegations in the least. If anything, they expose the socially awkward, not to mention racist and slightly homophobic, strategies she employs when trying to seduce guys on dating apps.

In the exchange, which happened between September 2016 and January 2017, McSweeney makes several comments to Che about how all men on dating app Raya “look gay.” She also makes an uncomfortable comment about how “U [sic] hate me cus [sic] I’m white” and says she’d be ashamed if their mutual friends read through the messages.

After the texts were published, McSweeney went on the defense. She told Jezebel that Che “planted” the story, then she posted a series of irate and racially-charged responses on Twitter:

And then, of course, there’s this:

Someone get this deranged woman a publicist to clean up this mess stat!
