In the papers today is a story of a university student caught on tape berating a cleaning lady. You can guess what happened to her personal information. From the JoongAng Daily:
Last Saturday, the cleaning lady’s daughter made a posting on the local Web portal Nate, the country’s third largest, saying that her mother was verbally abused by the student May 13 for failing to toss out a milk carton on a shelf in a campus toilet.
“Since the day I was born, I’ve never felt more miserable and useless than today,” read the post. “My mother was insulted in all sorts of ways by a female college student who’s just around her daughter’s age.”
The daughter alleged the student swore at her mother and demanded she throw away a paper milk carton in a public toilet. The cleaning lady explained she didn’t move it because there was milk left in the carton, so she thought it belonged to someone using the facility. According to the daughter, the college student cursed at her again and left the toilet.
. . .
Within hours, the student became the target of an Internet-based witch hunt. Photos of a female student and her address on a local social networking site spread on the Web, but the university said the hunters identified the wrong female.
The audio recording of the "경희대 패륜녀" is all over the Korean internet and is up on YouTube for the time being:
She joins 2005's "Dog Poop Girl" and last year's "Loser Girl" as young women made infamous, and public, thanks to the quick fingers of local netizens.
