Model Calls Out The Guys Who Harass Her Online By Posting Their Messages
A model is shaming the men who harass her online by showing their disgusting messages to the public.
Emily Sears is an Australian model who, like many of her peers, posts photos on her social media accounts to build her 2.3-million-strong fan base.
The Los Angeles-based model loves conversing with her fans online, but often receives direct messages containing inappropriate requests or photos, BuzzFeed reports.
Sears decided the best way to stop these men from sexually harassing her was to reveal their DMs and social media handles to her followers.
Some men asked for nude photos...
...while others attempted to solicit sexual activity.
Sears told BuzzFeed,
It appears the amount of sexual invitations Sears gets, however, is dwarfed by the onslaught of dick pics showing up in her DM inbox.
After visiting the profiles of these men, Sears realized a great deal of the senders actually had girlfriends.
So, she started sending the girlfriends screenshots of the dick pics and the lewd messages accompanying them.
In one example, Sears clarified she acted in support of the girlfriend.
According to Sears, the men typically respond with "panicked" apologies when she sends them photos of their girlfriends' profiles, but Sears knows they are only sorry they got caught.
Sears added by sharing the screenshots of the messages, she is showing the world "women aren't making this stuff up" when it comes to claims of regular sexual harassment.
Sears urged other women to take on her screenshot tactic should they be greeted with similarly inappropriate and harassing messages.
