Busted: Alleged cheating husband gets publicly shamed by over 183,000 users on Facebook (PICTURED)

A husband allegedly bragging about cheating on his wife has been publicly shamed on Facebook, after a train passenger overheard his conversation.

The picture of the man, who had been traveling on a train from Philadelphia with friends, has since been shared more than 183,000 times since a Pennsylvania mother posted in on Wednesday.

‘If this is your husband, I have endured a 2 hour train ride from Philadelphia listening to this loser and his friends brag about their multiple affairs and how their wives are too stupid to catch on. Oh please repost…’ Steph Strayer wrote on Wednesday.

While it is not known if the husband has been identified, the post has opened up the debate about whether it is right to publicly shame a stranger on social media.

Anna North writes on Salon: ‘It’s now possible to use social media to enforce behavior in public and semi-public spaces in a way it never was before.”‘

She adds that while the post attracted a lot of attention, it is important for people to remember that the man may not be married or be having an affair.

He could easily have just been showing off to his friends.

Earlier this year, a web company fired one of its employees after she took to Twitter to complain about the sexist comments being made by two men sitting near her at a conference.

Not only did Adria Richards lose her job, she was also the subject of a vicious online bullying campaign.

In a statement, her company SendGrid Inc, said that although it supports the need to report inoffensive behavior, publicly shaming the offenders ‘was not the appropriate way to handle the situation’.

According to The Washington Post, a San Jose Mercury News columnist argued: ‘The chain of events illustrates the worst features of the Internet —- the instant rush to judgment, the ugly personal attacks, the urge to punish a perceived wrongdoer.’

Blog sites however, such as Subwaycouture.com provide an outlet to commuters fed up with the inconsiderate actions of fellow passengers.

From sloppy eaters and drunks, to shoppers who feel their bags are more deserving of a seat than another person, the site has become a popular place to shame bad behavior.

It remains to be seen however, if the passenger sharing Ms Strayer’s train carriage will have to face any consequences from his boasts.

  1. How about wives who commit adultery? I learned the ex had a same sex affair with a married woman while pregnant with the 2nd and last child 18 years ago. Wish someone had some photos of her deception while they ran around in the community. This is my alimony horror story. In the no fault divorce state of Florida, the ex had many adulterous affairs with other women-including an incestuous one with her 20 year old cousin. She gets rewarded for this and her changed sexual orientation with lifetime alimony by the Hillsborough County Court (Tampa) and I get punished financially. How is this right and just? It certainly isn't and the time to fix such an injustice is now. In fact, her duplicity continues since she uses a made up last name in all daily life and the blogs she writes. The only time her true and legal name is used is on her driver's license and banking the $4000/month alimony welfare checks I have to write out.
    Elvina and Lee Kallett of St. Pete Beach, FL – Pays lifetime alimony to woman unable to remarry.

    Lee Kallett of St. Pete Beach, FL – Pays $4K in permanent alimony to lesbian ex-wife.
    This is Lee Kallett and Elvina Kallett. He pays permanent alimony to a woman who left the marriage because she chose to live a lesbian.

  2. Its disgraceful that this woman can publicly ruin someones reputation like this. Ride the train and mind your business….consider the wife and family. This broad clearly has no life.

  3. This is the problem with people today, here is a complete stranger that thinks she knows every thing about this man. that she can past judgement after a train ride. well here is my judgement. one look at her face and it says it all. An angry woman who was shammed by her man or maybe woman. What gives her the right to pass judgement. Hope she is sued for what ever she may have. If it was me I would spend all my time returning the favor to her.
