Open Post: Hosted By The Australian Woman Who Called Out Her Cheating Ex In A Newspaper Ad

August 15, 2022 / Posted by:

I think one of the best ways to get revenge on someone who’s done you wrong is to tell EVERYONE their personal business, even if it means you make yourself look foolish as well. Hey, all’s fair in love and war, right? And the true victor of today’s lesson in How Not To Give A Fuck is Jenny, an Australian woman who took her heartbreak to the pages of her local newspaper to inform everyone that her partner, Steve, is a horrible cheater who deserves to be humiliated just as much as she does.

People reports Jenny was sick and tired of Steve’s alleged cheating so instead of confronting him directly she decided it would be more fun to make him look like the messy trash he is by taking out an ad in their local newspaper, Mackay and Whitsunday Life, this past Friday. And honestly, this is much better than posting it on Twitter because now EVERYONE in town will be able to look at Steve in scorn for being such a “filthy cheater“.

“Dear Steve, I hope you’re happy with her,” reads the message, which ran in the paper’s Aug. 12 edition. “Now the whole town will know what a filthy cheater you are.”

Signing the letter as “Jenny,” the woman ended with a short and sweet note: “P.S. I bought this ad using your credit card.”

Jenny has quickly become the new Queen of Petty because not only is she putting Steve on blast she’s also literally making him pay for it. But unfortunately, even though she used Steve’s credit card he wasn’t charged. When the newspaper tried to process the payment, it was declined since the billing and booking names didn’t match up. And also, there’s no way to tell if “Jenny‘ and “Steve” are their actual names since Mackay and Whitsunday have remained tight-lipped as to their real identities. However, they are thankful that their relationship has crumbled into shattered dreams because the publicity they received was well worth it (for the newspaper, at least).

“As soon as the newspaper hit the stands, we were inundated with calls from the community,” they added. “Within hours of the post hitting social media the story went viral, gaining over 2,500 likes and generating both national and international media interest.”

I’m sure Steve is somewhere in hiding until this all blows over, but at this point, the damage is done. The only thing left for him to do is try making amends with Jenny by standing outside of her window singing The Whole Town’s Laughing At Me at the top of his lungs.
