As if this week wasn’t miserable sufficient for girls (will the actual Harvey Weinstein please rise up?), males are actually taking part in ‘pull a pig’ pranks on unsuspecting girls.
Sophie Stevenson, 24 from Stoke-on-Trent, travelled from the U.Okay to Holland to catch up with 21-year-old scholar Jesse Mateman – best to determine that she was the victim of the merciless ‘funny story’.
The pair met in Barcelona and began a ‘vacation romance’, however stayed in contact and talked just about each day or even mentioned a long-distance dating, Sophie instructed This Morning.
But when she landed in Amsterdam, Jesse was nowhere to be discovered.
“I tried to call him, I tried to message him, I tried to message his friend but he’d blocked me already which I thought was weird,” Sophie mentioned. “After about 20 minutes I started panicking.”
Two and a part hours later, Sophie gained a message from Jesse, announcing: “You’ve been pigged. It was all a joke,” with 3 emojis – two pigs, and a giggling face.
The ‘recreation’ comes to males making an attempt to ‘pull’ the least horny woman they are able to in finding. The ‘winner’ is the cretin guy who ‘pulls’ the ‘ugliest’.
Sophie answered to the message, asking “How can you be so cruel?”, to which Jesse answered via blocking off her. That was the closing touch that they had.
But since Sophie has spoken out about her revel in, no longer in need of different ladies to head thru the identical humiliation and heartache, Jesse’s attorney has launched a remark denying the entire factor.
“Mateman denies this and is very affected by all the negative attention he has suffered by Stevenson’s performance,” mentioned the remark. “Mateman wants to emphasise that the text messages as published in the media did not come from him.”
However, Sophie confirmed This Morning the texts, and after they referred to as the quantity, a voice picked up and mentioned: “Speak to my lawyers.”
Sophie’s dad instructed The Sun: “As soon as I heard, I wanted to go over there and find him. It would be awful for it to happen to anybody, but for it to happen to my daughter is disgusting. It’s awful to think of. She is a beautiful, confident, gorgeous girl and how dare that bastard do anything like this.”
A JustGiving web page has now been set as much as elevate £500 for Sophie, to ‘display her some love’ and lend a hand her ‘pay again her flights’.
