This Internet Troll Claims He Was Too Drunk To Realize He Was Being Sexist
Sydney courts have found internet troll, Zane Alchin, guilty of making explicit rape threats to various women on Facebook.
He was first charged back in October after having posted over 50 explicit and derogatory comments on women's profiles. Several of these sexist comments were made to 24-year-old Paloma Brierley Newton, who was the one who finally decided to take his repulsive comments to the police.
What were some of these "repulsive comments?" Let me tell you.
The Guardian reports that among the sexist comments Alchin made were, “You know the best thing about a feminist they don't get any action so when you rape them it feels 100 times tighter;” “You'll be eating my cock till you puke;” and “I'd rape you if you were better looking.”
Australian badass, Newton, wasn't about to sit around and take this creep's harassment. After Alchin posted 55 comments in a two-hour period, Newton went ahead and put screenshots of his comments on a USB drive that she gave to the police when she reported him. Then she blocked him.
This all must have come as a huge shock to Alchin as he responded to her threats of contacting the police with this comment, “What law am I breaking? I'm not the one out of the fucking kitchen.”
Well apparently, he is actually breaking a pretty big law. After pleading guilty on Monday, his sentencing was set for July 29. His charge carries a maximum punishment of three years' imprisonment. Yeah, it turns out publicly harassing women with disgusting and derogatory rape threats on the internet is no joke.
In his own defense, the 25-year-old man said, not only did he not realize that making such threats over the internet was a crime, but he was also under the influence. So, these actions did not accurately reflect him as a person.
A man trying to use alcohol to disguise his disgusting actions? Sounds familiar.
