Woman Puts A Lot Of Effort Into Shaming Her Cheating Boyfriend On Christmas Day

By  | 

A woman surprised her cheating boyfriend on Christmas day by wrapping up copies of screenshots of messages he sent to other women. No idea what the messages said, but I’m guessing they were pretty bad because our friend Cassy went through the trouble of printing out the screenshots, wrapping them up, and presenting them to a man she was about to break up with.

Her revenge tweet has been re-tweeted over 15,000 times and favorited more than 16,000 times. People really love a good revenge story. I’m personally not a fan of the public shaming route when it comes to personal relationships, whether it be parent/child, wife/husband, girlfriend/boyfriend — whatever. I don’t understand it. I think it’s an abuse of technology and just generally icky. Here are some closer shots of the tweet:

The general public really loves this kind of payback, as evidenced by the headlines on stories covering the debacle. I found it on Upprox — theirs was titled, This Woman Exposed Her Cheating Boyfriend With A Brilliant Christmas Gift. Then there was, This Woman Gave Her Cheating Boyfriend The Perfect Christmas Gift and This Is How You Expose A Cheating Significant Other. I just don’t see the point. Why spend Christmas with a jerk who cheated on you? For the sole purpose of taking bad photos and plastering them all over Twitter?

I’m guessing the guy’s name is “Trey” since Cassy’s Twitter name is @NessiLovnTrey. Trey is a jerk, I’m not arguing that. But I am not a fan of blasting private relationship issues all over social media. This example is extreme, but even the more subtle complaining you sometimes hear from Facebook friends about their significant others is the worst. Stop, people. Please stop.
