Is this your husband? God, you would hope not after his picture went viral, accused of being a cheater.

Steph Strayer was on a train in Philly when she overheard some jerk  allegedly bragging about cheating on his wife to his friends. Completely disgusted she decided to give him a taste of his own medicine and publicly shame the alleged cheater.

The Pennsylvania mom took a pic of the guy and posted it on Facebook with the caption, “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…”

Oh people re-posted alright. As of this Online Dish, the pic had gone viral, being posted 254,984 times.

But, with the posting, this question has been posted…is it right to publicly shame a stranger?

Social media has opened up a whole new can of worms. Not only can you cheat through social media, you can get busted. In this case I think the woman should have just practiced MYOB. Guys are a lot of talk, and by posting this you’re also shaming the innocent, his wife and kids.

And that’s today’s helping of The Online Dish with Maggie.

    First off yea it’s if the dad is cheating PERIOD for his FAMILY but who is to say ther wasn’t aunt Molly sitting a few seats down an heard this convo or his KIDS best buds sitting on the train if this creep was sooo worried he wouldn’t publicly be disgracing and disrespecting to himself about such a thing in PUBLIC my point is if it hadn’t been her it could had been someone else and that’s the chance his MOUTH took by blurting it out in public !!!!!!

    How are a mother and her children shamed? They might be embarressed to have such idiots in their lives. But, truly in this day and age you run the risk of having all your actions recorded. A man who cheats wins nothing from bragging about such conquests. Those people in their live put trust into a relationship and I find it far from stupid for this woman to publicly air out those with cruel intentions. How on earth is this a bad thing? Maybe this woman did a favor to the families involved, because sometimes people need a wake up call. Cheating isn’t right no matter how you paint it. I find it as someone doing the unsuppecting spouse a favor. They should know and how else are the people involved going to find out about it? What if the wife ended up with cancer from a disease the cheating husband gave her? A man I used to work for did that to his wife. So if you think its wrong maybe you should think about how cheating affects relationships in the long run.
