Guy’s Life Gets Ruined After Bragging About His Model Girlfriend Online
Reddit is a funny world. An online community of people with the same interests comment, post and add momentum to forums that often snowball to include those from all walks of life. It is a double edge sword. On the one hand, you are able to get helpful information from total strangers on the other side of the world that often lend a totally different viewpoint to yourself. On the other hand, the anonymity of the interweb can also lend itself to a lot of bad behavior!
This guy posted on Reddit, seeking guidance from those in the /relationships advice forum on how to go about acting on a suspicion that his partner was cheating on him. The question came across as perfectly innocent and reasonable. But as responders posted in the forum, the guy’s demeanor changed as he picked fights with and started bragging about his partner’s ‘model’ status and also slipping in some bragging about how much money he makes.
Well, as mentioned before, the bad behaviour from the Redditors began almost immediately. Not taking a liking to the guy’s douche-like comments, they began to trawl through his history, and his girlfriend’s as well.
By tracing some four years of history on Reddit, people were able to easily obtain information from his previous posts such as his Instagram account. Using these details they found he had tagged the woman in posts and, bingo, they all of a sudden had a lead on the girl in question. From there it got worse.
By doing a search on her name on Twitter, they were able to locate a string of posts from years ago. As it turned out, by tracing the source of the images, the Redditors were able to find out that the woman had done a bit of adult acting which was not part of her old life. Links were posted to one of her movies and all of a sudden the poor girl’s life was in the spotlight, her identity disclosed to thousands in the thread.
All the while, the process was documented on the forum, meaning that this guy’s world was getting flipped upside down. It got so bad that he eventually deleted the thread, but the people pursued him further and further, leading him to eventually delete his account!
Safe to say the moral of the story is not mess with people who have the skills to absolutely annihilate you. That, and, don’t be a douche!
