Comments posted on the internet have legs. They can be viewed widely as soon as they’re posted, and they have the potential to resurface long after the commenter has forgotten about it. A Manchester man became the poster child for internet comments gone wrong when a lecherous comment he left under a lingerie model’s picture came back to haunt him.
He said that model Kelly Brook was “so sexy” he’d “leave [his] wife and kids for one night with her.” Unfortunately for him, said comment was linked to his Facebook account and his wife made his dream a reality.
She posted: “My idiot husband forgot his comments are linked to his Facebook account. You don’t deserve our beautiful kids and I hope your brother has room on his sofa because I’m having the locks changed.”
Would you react similarly if you caught your significant other posting lascivious comments on the internet? Do you care if they leave flirty or suggestive comments online with crushes they may never meet or even people they know?
