Match Group Chairman Gregory Blatt condemned a not-so-flattering article about Tinder CEO Sean Rad.
"It's a silly and unfortunate article. I think there are a lot of inaccuracies there and a lot of things taken out of context, and I actually think there's some corrections being made," Blatt told CNBC's "Squawk Box" on Thursday.
The newspaper has no plans of issuing a correction because "as far as we are aware, there are no inaccuracies" London Evening Standard Deputy Managing Editor Will Gore said in an email to CNBC.
The article — published Wednesday by the London Evening Standard — touches on Rad's romantic life and said he began doing "background research" on Vanity Fair writer Nancy Jo Sales after she published an article accusing Tinder of ushering the "dawn of the dating apocalypse."

"I think what Sean meant when he said that is he actually Googled actual articles that the person had written before and that he thought there were some interesting things in those articles. He certainly had no one followed or anything like that," Blatt said.
Blatt made his comments ahead of Match Group's initial public offering last Thursday.
"We felt the time was now. We're obviously price sensitive, but not so price sensitive that we thought going out and getting sort of independence from IAC was a good thing for us operationally and strategically," he said.
The 20-year-old company was spun out of IAC/InteractiveCorp, a company controlled by media mogul Barry Diller.
