HO.LEE.SHE.ITE LOOK WHAT THIS CHICK DID TO THIS GUY...HELL HATH NO FURY...
THANKS TO BROADSHEET.IE FOR THE FOLLOWING STORY (AND FOR DOING MOST OF MY NET-SEARCHING WORK FOR ME ON A DAILY BASIS..GO BROADSHEET!)Currently doing the rounds of the blogniverse is the salutory tale of young Jack Weppler: an aspiring actor who recently broke up with his girlfriend.
She didn’t take it at all well.
In fact, she visited a spectacular online bunny boiler on him, spamming macro’ed images of his headshot to the point where a typical Google search for Weppler revealed the results you see above.
In a message since removed from the Google Helpmaster Forum, Weppler’s distraught mother complained;
My minor son’s ex-girlfriend took a copyrighted picture of him (we own copyright) and uploaded it more than 60 times to a website. On each image she wrote slanderous, defamatory and pornographic captions. The webmaster of the site states he removed the images 6 weeks ago, but Google Search still shows all the images. My son is so stressed out and embarrassed and we’ve done everything we can to get images off of Google including URL removal tool, a letter to Google Legal with all the URLs because of copyright infringement, and nothing has worked!
The cache is still stubbornly in place. Even now, Wepplers’s Google search results still look like this.
So. No chance of you kids patching things up before Valentine’s, then?
