Infidelity is painful to come to terms with as it is a betrayal of trust. Some people choose to grieve the relationship silently with space and privacy. Others are more dramatic with their romantic lives turning into breaking news stories. After all the victim of infidelity has nothing to hide as the cheater deserves to be shamed and ridiculed.
Mackay and Whitsunday Life is a weekly newspaper covering topics related to property listings, local entertainment, community news, sports, and information. This paper focuses on the regions of Mackay the Coalfields, Whitsundays, and Bowen Basin.
The news agency published a Facebook post featuring an advertisement that sells out a man’s reputation. The ad on Page 4 of Mackay Life read: “Dear Steve, I hope you’re happy with her. Now the whole town will know what a filthy cheater you are. From Jenny. P.S. I bought this ad using your credit card.”
People marvel at juicy gossip, and this ad sparked a lot of attention. The news outlet had to address three frequently asked questions:
“1. We do NOT know who Steve is, but apparently he’s been very very bad.
- We won’t be revealing any details about Jenny.
- We have not charged the credit card in question.”
People chimed in with their thoughts on the post.
One user wrote: “Hey Jenny, if you’re reading this send us a message! The next round of drinks with the girls is on us!”
Not everyone took the side of Jenny as one commentator wrote: “Can’t understand why Steve would fall for someone else……”
Whether people are part of Team Jenny or Team Steve, laughter heals all wounds.
We can only wish them the best of luck in their future relationships.
