The post was picked up by Clementine Ford and Nadia Bokody, and many began emailing Tom's place of employment which resulted in him being fired over the vile behaviour.
Tom's former boss told the Daily Mail that he was "shocked and disgusted" by the behaviour, which amounted to "an act of serious misconduct". "I have four daughters aged between 10 months and nine years old so that was one of the first things I thought about, and my blood boiled to imagine someone to ever speak to one of my little girls like that."
Following Ebonie's viral post, more than 20 other women have since come forward to share their experiences of abuse, harassment and even blackmail from Tom.
Of those, Erin Hinds, told her story to the Daily Mail, saying she too was sent derogatory messages calling her a "wh*re" and a "sl*t" when she told him she wasn't interested.
Speaking to news.com.au, Ebonie said the most shocking thing to come out of her experience was that this "awful behaviour" is all too common.
"The truth is, this happens more than we think. So many women resonated with this kind of sexist, abusive behaviour and it was really sad to discover just how real it is," she told the outlet. "I also think us women often cater to this behaviour far too often, we're so polite and let disrespectful men treat us this way without any consequences."
The publication confirmed that Tinder had since removed Tom's profile.
Ebonie concluded her post with a powerful message of body positivity: "I will never change my weight for anyone else but MYSELF!!!"
