Help! I'm In Love With A Married Man
Should You "Out" A Married Man Who's Trying To Flirt With You - To Thousands Of People On The Internet?
I love a good story about a jerk getting hit by the karma train, but this story leaves me with mixed emotions. On a plane flight out of LAX, an actor sits down next to a model and (allegedly) begins to hit on her. The model is bored with his advances, and thinks that (thanks to Virgin America's free Wi-Fi policy on it's flights) it'd be fun to Tweet his hackneyed pickup lines to her over 13,000 followers. Especially since the guy is so full of himself. And wearing a wedding ring that he denies is a wedding ring.
What unfolded next was possibly the undoing of this man's career and marriage. As the model tweeted, her followers used the clues she provided and found the identity of her would-be Casanova. They confirmed that he was married, with children, and a self-professed family man who'd found sobriety and recently starred in a Christian-themed movie. In addition to tweeting about him hitting on her and removing his wedding ring after a visit to the restroom, she also claimed he was drunk, having consumed three beers on the flight - not the best PR for the kind of person he claims to be.
Did this guy make a jerk of himself? Or is this girl just looking for publicity? Or does the truth fall somewhere in between? Who knows? My gut says this guy most likely tried to hit on her - she's got way too many details about his life and she put it all in print, inviting a libel suit that I think he most certainly would have threatened her with by now - unless others can corraborate her story. So the odds are, he's every bit the shallow, self-centered hunk of disrespect that she says he is.
Now on to her. I'm sure she's gets a lot of satisfaction out of exposing this idiot. I know I felt a bit gleeful when I first read the article. If it's all true, he deserves this smackdown and more. Unfortunately, it wasn't just him that her words were tearing into. She humiliated his wife, as well. What did she do to deserve this? What did his kids do to deserve this? I'm all for calling a jerk a jerk, but when you call it over a loudspeaker whose vibrations will knock over and injure the people who love him, then you need to find a quieter form of communication.
I'm a big fan of the anonymous note. It wouldn't have been too hard for her to use her industry connections to find out where to send this guy's wife some mail. Believe me, if he's like I think he is, his wife has clues to follow once the note gets her curiousity up. Let her choose to do with the information what she wants to - in private.
