The internet is probably the most dangerous place on earth. Numerous lives have been ruined here, mainly because of cyber bullying. I guess most of us who enjoy the internet have been blinded, tricked, ridiculed, and faked on by what we’ve seen in the cyber world. Such is the story of a model whose life was ruined just because of a fake meme.
In early 2004, this plastic surgery meme began circulating around the web, attached to it is a story from a local tabloid about a husband who divorced and sued his wife for having “ugly” children. He found out she had plastic surgery before they met and deceive him with her fake beauty.
The clinic’s ad showed a beautiful couple and their “average-looking” children, captioned: “The only thing you have to worry about after plastic surgery is explaining it to your children.”
Yes, it was just an advertisement and the children were photoshopped into their “ugly” versions. The ad aims to promote beauty, but has turned someone’s life into a nightmare.
