Model responds to explicit photos sent to her by men by contacting their wives and girlfriends
An Australian model based in LA has a novel way of deterring men who send her explicit photos online.
Emily Sears has 2.4m followers on Instagram and regularly posts photos of herself at work or with her friends.
However, she also receives "at least two d**k pics per day, at minimum" and, fed up with facing explicit, unwanted images in her inbox, she decided to contact the wives and girlfriends of the men who send them.
"My favourite hobby is searching for men who send me disgusting DMs online and replying with pics of their female family members and wives," she tweeted.
She also posted an screen grab of one such offensive image with the message she sent to the man's partner.
It read, "Terribly sorry to tell you that ur partner is sending pictures of his genitals to models on Instagram. I'm telling you this because I'm a girls girl and I think women need to stick together. I want you to know that all types of men do this kind of thing and it's no reflection on you. You deserve better treatment than this."
She tweeted, "Here's what happens when you send me d**k pics to DM. I do not play. Names hidden to protect this woman's privacy."
Emily told Buzzfeed that it's something that has been happening for a long time and does not just affect models.
"I became absolutely fed up with these kinds of disturbing and disgusting messages and comments online," she said.
“This isn’t just happening to models with a big followings. It’s happening when women are online dating and denying matches with men. It can happen to any woman online, just like it can happen to any woman walking down the street.”
