Steph Strayer posts photo of “cheating husband” on Facebook to shame him
Steph Strayer posted a photo (you can click on the link to view the photo) of a “cheating husband” on her Facebook account. She claims the man had boasted, over a two-hour train ride, to his companions of his numerous affairs; and more so how “dumb his wife” was for not having a clue of his illicit activities. The woman posted the photo on her Facebook account and asked for it to be shared so that to “shame” the husband for his debauchery.
“If this is your husband, I have endured a 2 hour train ride from Philadelphia listening to this loser and his friends brag about their multiple affairs and how their wives are too stupid to catch on. Oh please repost …”
The photo has been shared by over 265,000 people since it was posted June 5th. Many people have criticized her for “shaming” a man whom they can’t prove actually cheated on his wife. They don’t think it was her place to post the photo. I think she has every right to post the photo.
For the sake of argument I will assume she is telling the truth. The man and his companions chose to speak of their actions, to no end I might add, in a PUBLIC area. If they wanted their “secrets” kept to themselves then they shouldn’t have divulged them in a public space. Obviously they spoke loud enough that Steph heard them. By her account they were gloating of their misdeeds.
Again if this is true then this guy and his friends are pigs. If someone found out my girlfriend or wife was cheating on me then I would want to know. If her claim is proven to be false then I think she should be held liable for defamation.
Do you think she should have shared the photo?
Do you think it is even legal to post a photo of someone without their consent?
Would you tell your friend if you found out their partner was cheating on them?
