Social media has changed the way we interact in a variety of ways, both good and bad. For instance, it’s easier than ever to send a rude message to someone without so much as a second thought; on the other hand, it’s also a lot easier to get revenge for said message.
This New Delhi-based journalist received some pretty terrible messages from a pretty terrible dude on her Facebook page, so she decided to tweet out some screenshots to show people the abuse that she deals with on an everyday basis.
One message read, “Hi bitch. Spread ur legs. Filthy slut.” When she didn’t respond, he messaged her again saying, “You slut… Fuck you bitch… mother fucker…”
Ayyub’s call-to-action was definitely heard. Many people encouraged her to report him, and when his UAE-based company caught wind of it, they promptly terminated him.
But the man’s punishment didn’t stop there: he also had his visa revoked and is now being deported back to India.
Ayyub has gotten a lot of support for her actions, especially from the Indian community for standing up against harassment and sexism.
However, Ayyub knows that this is just a small victory in the long run.
You go, girl! Now let’s hope this becomes a new thing, so we can crush one abusive troll at a time.
