Girl launches online appeal to find cheating boyfriend, after hearing him bragging to his mates on the train
If anyone knows a cheater called Ben, pls get in touch
After hearing a man called "Ben" boasting to his friends about cheating on his girlfriend, a woman launched a Twitter campaign to hunt down and expose him.
Emily Shepherd, 23, a student at Bournemouth University was on a service from Bournemouth to Manchester when she heard Ben bragging about his sexual exploits.
She immediately posted a warning on Twitter urging the mystery girlfriend to "Dump is Ass x".
If anyone has a boyfriend called Ben on the Bournemouth – Manchester train right now, he’s just told his friends he’s cheating on you. Dump his ass x

Many rushed to identify the heartbreaker:
I know a Ben that travelled up there last night to see his misses 🙈 description of him Emily? 🙈

Whilst many innocent Bens were falsely accused:
DEFINITELY NOT 😂 well and truly in bed with my girlfriend …. fighting over who’s turn it was on candy crush 😂

Even Deborah Meaden from Dragons' Den entered the debate:
Dear cheating Ben… can you please make yourself known before all the non cheating Bens find out where you live… https://t.co/Q70pefqfEJ

Despite the support, many men were outraged by the interrogation, calling Emily a "snake" and a "grass":
No one likes a grass emily. Grow up

Others argued Ben might have been lying. Perhaps he has low self-esteem and is under pressure to conform to lad culture. Maybe he loves his girlfriend and has never touched anyone else in his life:
Have you considered that the lad is just giving it the big one to his mate? Probably has rock bottom self esteem and now you’re snaking him without evidence. Dog move. Funny thread though 🤪

Unless he's lying to the friends in an attempt to impress them…best not to get involved in the complicated lives of total strangers… #thelivesofothers

But many girls tweeted in support of the social media appeal, defending Emily against the haters:
The perpetuation of this attitude is what helps perpetrators go unchecked. Hold people accountable for their shitty, harmful behaviour. Stop protecting piss lords.

If anyone knows a Ben that has recently travelled around the Bournemouth area, please contact [email protected]
In the meantime, someone needs to set up a Go Fund Me for Emily so she can set up a private detective business. Unearthing slimy cheaters who are viciously lying to their partners and getting away with it. It is essential for the women of Great Britain.
