Backlash Over NSW Police Facebook Post About Dating Apps

There's been backlash over a NSW Police Facebook post involving Beyoncé Single Ladies and dating safety tips.

The post went up earlier this week, with lyrics to the Beyonce original replaced with advice for online dating.

All the single ladies, (All the single ladies), Now put your hands up, Up on your phone, surfing apps alone, Doing your own little thing, You’ve decided to swipe, have a super like, Now someone’s asking to meet, Keep yourself safe (safe), Tell a friend your meeting place (place), ‘Cause it’s only worth it if you’re okay, You can't be playing with safety 🎶

However, social media users have not taken well to the post, with many criticising this as 'victim blaming' and 'tone deaf'.

One user said: "Imagine if this is how you responded to those guys being hit in the Cross", while others have suggested that a song is made about consent instead.
