Woman Shares Response She Sent to Stop a Man Sending Her Unacceptable Photos
In a putrid case of online sexual harassment where a man chose to expose himself in an inbox without the receiver's consent, Chantay Joseph decided to take back her power using humor and sass to shame and frighten him.
Online content creator Chantay Joseph took to her Twitter, sharing photos of her response to unsolicited pictures of a male's genitalia in her inbox. It left netizens and fans applauding her.
After sending Joseph a picture bearing his genitalia and offensive messages, the Twitter user responded with statements that caused that offender to shake in his boots.
Taking to her inbox, Joseph pretended to be an online security system that detects messages of an inappropriate nature. The content creator wrote that the system had automatically seen a possibly unlawful statement, continuing to read:
"Your... IP address has been forwarded to the police...pending an investigation. If you think this is a mistake, please reply STOP."
He anxiously replied with this word, to which Joseph sent the fake auto-reply again. The harasser responded apprehensively, asking her to answer herself and aggressively stating that he knew it was her.
Joseph sent another message stating that the police would call him, and then she blocked him. This saga, however, was not over, with the offender asking a fellow Twitter user via her Instagram messages to take the post down after she retweeted it.
They claimed it was inappropriate and eventually kicked her off the plane.
This Twitter user, Bec Aitken, shared the news and his messages begging her to ask Joseph to take this particular Tweet down. Aitken thought it was hilarious, including laugh emojis in her comment.
Another user Cara Lisette also took to the comment section, claiming that this man is well-known for sending unsolicited pictures of his private parts. She wrote:
"Serial offender unfortunately that isn’t learning his lesson no matter what we do."
Lisette alleged that she also had a similar experience with him, sharing the purported public apology video he made for her. Joseph's Tweet has gone viral, accumulating just under 1500 retweets and 25,000 likes so far.
Although Joseph used the situation to her advantage, empowering herself against online sexual harassment via humor, this issue is not truly funny, and harassment does not come in only one form.
Another is verbal harassment; Ray Lin Howard accused Alaska Airlines staff of this. The rapper alleged that, while she was on a plane, attendants approached her on 3 different occasions due to her attire, specifically her crop top.
Howard purported that they claimed it was inappropriate and eventually kicked her off the plane. Like Joseph, the comment section was wholly on her side, honorably defending those they believe to be in the right.
