Social media makes breakups much more dangerous

A scorned woman really let her ex have it on social media accusing him of being "a borderline pedophile" after she reportedly discovered texts from other women on his phone.

"YOU ARE A FOOL. You're a liar, a cheater, and a borderline pedophile. You disgust me," says the letter as posted on Deadspin.

She continues:

"You call me crazy—the lamest, most overused derogatory insult for a woman. (I know you struggle with big words, so derogatory=bad.) I'll admit, I was crazy. Crazy for lowering my standards for you. Crazy for believing you had potential. Crazy for making excuses for your faults and overlooking your downfalls. Crazy for believing you when you told me you loved me and wanted to spend the rest of your life with me. Crazy for wasting 2 1/2 years on you." There's more.

The man in her crosshairs then apparently resigned from his job as a basketball coach after the letter went public, and the high school he coached for reportedly began an investigation into alleged inappropriate contact with a student.

Later regretting her decision, the woman pulled down the 11-paragraph rant, and tried to point out the investigation turned up no malicious activity, but the damage was already done.

"Here's the thing when you post something on Facebook, the world owns it," says KIRO Radio's Dori Monson. "So we now have all seen the Facebook post that this woman wrote to her live-in boyfriend."
