So, there’s a lot going on here. I’d previously read about this story of an Instagrammer selling her bath water (listen: who hasn’t?) to “thirsty gamer boys” but did you know there was a herpes rumor twist? Of course there is.
Belle Delphine, who has 4 million followers on Instagram and 400,000 subscribers on YouTube, sold her bath water to people through her website and people bought it (why did I go to university?). Afterwards, a rumor began about people who had allegedly contracted herpes because of the bath water purchased. Well don’t worry, it was just a rumor! So you can feel free to drink up all the dirty bath water purchased over the internet that you want!
Snopes says that you “thirsty gamer boys” out there are in the clear! Well from the herpes bath water, at least–I’d imagine you have other issues to deal with if you’re buying some stranger’s bath water because you think she’s hot… But at least you can sleep knowing this rumor is a certified LIE!
This all started when Belle Delphine announced she
would be scamming her perv followers by selling them tap water she pretended to bathe in was selling her own bath water. She posted her announcement to her Instagram account:

Selling out bath water?! This is an entrepreneuse! Look at this businesswoman: bathing ten times a day just to keep up her supply and demand!
So here’s where things get creepy…creepier. A rumor started that people got herpes. This was all because of a Twitter account which has since been found to be fraudulent. I guess some people don’t really know about how STDs can be transmitted.
An account called @BakeRises who had the name “Daily Mail US” with a Daily Mail logo on it, posted a fake story about 50 people getting herpes from Belle Delphine’s water. The story kind of got some traction and people started actually thinking that 50 people out in the world now had Belle’s brand of water-herpes. The account eventually then wrote:
“It seems the best way to grow on Twitter is to impersonate a company [the Daily Mail] and say things about a celebrity [Belle Delphine] that legally can be considered libel and I could potentially be sued for.”
Thus dispelling the rumor… mostly. People still commented On Belle Delphine’s stuff about herpes, prompting her to write on Instagram:
“You’re a [clown] if you believed that.”
Honestly, you’re more of a clown if you buy a girl’s bath water than if you think it can give you herpes. I feel like most of us should know that buying a chick’s bath water is strange to say the least.
But this girl knows strange:
Is that a Mountain Dew in that mini-fridge she’s hiding in with a dead octopus with fake eyes on it? Gamer Boys love Mountain Dew! This girl really knows her audience.
