WHEN INTERNET SHAMING GOES WRONG: “A woman in Melbourne, Australia was riding a bus when she noticed a young man walking up to other women and sticking his hand in their faces. This woman said the man sat near her and stared at him. She claimed the women he tried to interact with were visibly fearful. She wrote an expletive-laden Facebook post about the incident, calling the man a ‘low life,’ ‘creep,’ ‘loser’ and ‘festering turd of a human being.’ She did not know this man, but immediately jumped to conclusions about his motives. She even took a photo of the man (without his consent) and plastered it on Facebook, where her post received more than 80,000 likes and nearly 10,000 shares. The man she shamed is reportedly autistic, and likes giving people high fives.”
