Woman Changes Her Name Just So She Can Access Her Facebook Account

There's no doubt social media has a huge impact on the way Millennials live their lives.

While most people just dedicate too much time to choosing an Instagram filter or stressing over the number of favorites they got on Twitter, one woman went arguably too far to maintain access to her Facebook account.

Since 2008, Jemma Rogers used the fake Facebook name Jemmaroid von Laalaa in order to make herself harder to find on the social media site.

However, when Facebook implemented its real-name policy and began suspending people from the site for using names not listed on their birth certificates, Rogers lost access to her account.

In order to prove her name was Jemmaroid Von Laalaa, she tried to send the site a photo of a fake bank card.

When that didn't work, she felt she had no choice but to turn to extreme measures.

Since access to this account was apparently REALLY important to her, Rogers legally changed her name from Jemma Rogers to her pseudonym, Jemmaroid Von Laalaa, via deed poll.

What's even more outrageous is Facebook still hasn't unsuspended her account.

According to Mashable, she said,

I can't believe I'm stuck with this stupid name and I still can't get into my Facebook. It's hard to speak to a human being as well, all I get is computerized messages back. It's so frustrating.

I would be frustrated if I changed my name to something that ridiculous and didn't even get the result I expected, too.

Then again, I would probably just delete my account and channel my energy into making a really great Twitter feed.
