Twitter harassment; enough is enough

What do Jean-François Champagne and Peter Coffin have in common?

Both are facing justice for their scandalous remarks on Twitter. The later, Coffin, was exposed last week for posing as his own girlfriend using pictures from a Korean ulzzang by Xiaxue after he slandered her on Twitter. Coffin was reputed for tweeting insults and even racist remarks to other twitter users as well as Internet personalities. After being discovered, Coffin had a taste of “Internet Justice”; he has since disabled comments on his YouTube channel, locked his Twitter and even a rumour of a petition is going around to have his YouTube partnership revoked.

However, Champagne will be facing real Justice by going to Court to answer to four charges of harassment and two charges of death threats for remarks he made on Twitter to various TV and radio personalities such as Guy A Lepage and the Justiciers Masqués over the past few weeks.

Before I go on with this post, I want to show some of this guy’s tweet before they vanish from Twitter;

JiCLajoieRepeatedly attacking radio personality Jean-Charles Lajoie.
Roughly translates to: “ Loll big faggot I’m punching u in the stomach and
while ur on the ground lol big idiot keep humiliating yourself on the radio

robitailleandre

Attacking television personality André Robitaille, Champagne says:
Llloll Andre ur really a fucking idiot, stupid and useless fat ugly idiot loll slut

These are the most toned down tweets I could find on this guy’s page. Some are extremely sexually explicit and disgusting. And he doesn’t only attack celebrities but also random Twitter users.

Thankfully, this guy was arrested and he’s staying in jail until tomorrow. I sure hope this guy stays in prison until his trial: he cannot be allowed near a computer again as this guy obviously has a lot of anger issues, especially against women, from what I’ve read on his Twitter page.

The reason why I’m writing about this is that I am so glad that the SPVM (Montreal police department) reacted quickly and grabbed this deranged man by the collar and put a stop to all this nonsense. I’m relieved that as a society, we are able to stand up and say :” No, this is not ok” and report such behaviour, especially when these things happen online were a lot of people tend to thing that it’s jungle where you can say anything you want. As a blogger, I receive hate comments once in a while. I’m only a small dot on the blogging sphere and a lot of fellow bloggers receive so much more hate that they absolutely do not deserve. I hope that as this story unfolds, people will really understand that no matter where you are, online and in real life, you are accountable for what you say and what you do.

If you’ve ever been a victim of harassment online, I urge you to report it. Don’t let it get too far.

Stand up!

P29-03-11_101 P29-03-11_102

I’m glad you all liked my somewhat of an outfit post last week! I won’t be able to get my hands on a full lenght mirror so I’m glad you can get an idea of what I’m wearing looks like.e000_013

I picked up those tights at Aldo last week when I was hanging with my friend who had just came back from Japan. Aren’t they the cutest thing ever??? I’m so happy because usually skin coloured tights are too dark for my skin colour and I end up have tan looking legs when I’m actually very fair! These tights however are very light so they are perfect! The shorts are from smart set and the top and the neck are from Forever 21 (the necklace is a gift from Dominique!).

Funny thing happened at school when I was wearing this outfit. I had just finished my Chinese lab and I was going to my locker when I passed in front of a group students who were chilling in the hallway. One of the girls started laughing and yelling: “WHAT IS SHE WEARING?" WHAT IS SHE WEARING?”. I was feeling quite gutsy so I turned around and looked at her, straight in the eyes and said: “What are YOU wearing?”.e000_079

She was your typical ugg-boots+leggings-as-pants college girl and her friends quickly caught up on that and laughed at her. She didn’t say anything and looked at the floor. I was quite surprised that she didn’t have anything else to say, to be honest, I was almost expecting her to start a fight! e000_058I left and I felt quite powerful at that moment.

I hope none of you face these kind of girls on a daily basis… and that if you do, go ahead and confront them! I think most of the time, these people who say these kind of things don’t expect you to react, so go ahead and humiliate them!

I’ve been going to school with no make-up recently ^^’’

Somewhat of an outfit post?

I’m happy you all liked my recent haul! I don’t know for you, but whenever I get new clothes, I’m also so excited to wear them… I tend to wear them right away, all on the same week! My mom likes to make fun of me when I do that hahae000_012

My favourite item really is that pink blouse… unfortunately I don’t have a better picture of the outfit as I still lack a full length mirror and my bathroom is way too messy for mirror-picture haha. I paired this oversized shirt with skinny black jeans (F21), a braided belt (H&M) and new boots (pictures coming up in my next haul post). Necklace is also from F21; had it for quite some time!06

I took pictures AFTER I got from from my day and it was snowing/raining and I had no umbrella so both my hair and my make-up were messed-up 03 So I’ll spare you from that !

Recent loot!

Hi everyone! How have you all been? It was March break for me this week so I spent a lot of time relaxing at home and catching up on the sleep e000_081that I’ve been lacking because of the midterms that preceded this break.03 Sadly… my break is almost over and I’m going back to school next week… oh well… all good things have an end right02?

During this break, my mom wanted to go shopping! Yay! We were mainly looking for a spring coat but we ended up buying a lot more then just a coat hahae000_009So I thought I should share my latest gets from both that retail therapy trip and recent gets!

Chiffon flowered tunic; Sirens
Oversized pink shirt; Costa Blanca

I was really surprised when my mom pointed out the chiffon tunic inside the shop: not only was it loved at first sight but my mom realllly liked it too1638 ! The oversized shirt was bought using a gift card that an ex-colleague gave me for my birthday: I rarely shop at Costa Blanca but I fell in love with that shirt the moment I saw it. I had been looking for this type of shirt with a “boyfriend” sort of feeling but with a feminine touch forever! e000_073

IMG_0151IMG_0156
Lace shirt: Sirens
Sheer blouse: Forever21

The sheer blouse is actually a birthday gift from my BFF Annick e000_044Not only did she gave me a gift card for one of my favourite mall but she also got me this fabulous shirt when we were shopping at F21 together! I like it so much; I wore it on my birthday party (combined with the super pretty necklace Dominique got me… but my camera died when I got to take pictures of accessories e000_054)

Oversized sweater: Fancy Tree House

I got this oversized sweater a little while ago but I haven’t had the chance to really take a good picture of it before today e000_007Î was a little bit disappointed to find tiny yellow stains all over the back of each sleeves but oh well… it’s not called vintage clothing for nothing!e000_051

IMG_0166IMG_0168IMG_0172IMG_0176IMG_0163

Shorts: Sirens and Smart Set

Finally… I finally got over my self confidence issue about my legs and went crazy when shopping for shorts… you might recall that before… I only had one pair of shorts for last summer… well now I have more then I’ll ever need to wear for the whole summer!! e000_065

I also got a few accessories but my camera died so I’ll keep those for another entry! I can’t wait for summer timee000_028! I live in a country where it’s cold… pretty much 8 months a year but summer is still my favourite season when it comes to fashion!

Now if only I can get a shop and go shopping more often… anyone wants to hire me? icon_worries2

Earthquake in Japan: you can make a difference

I’m pretty sure by now everyone is aware of the 8.9 earthquake that hit Japan earlier today. Thankfully, I was able to reach all my friends in Japan and they and their family are all safe.

Unfortunately, it’s not the case for everyone and I would like to call out all my readers and fellow bloggers; please make a difference by donating to Red Cross.

Trip to Korea: Drama sightseeing!

As some of you may know (especially if you follow me on Twitter!), I’m going to Korea this summer! I got the news this Friday when my parents told me they would help me go there as a birthday gift e000_027 (most awesome parents in the world? I think so!) so I’ve started doing a lot of research and I thought of sharing the results with you.

You may know that I’m a sucker for Korean drama so I remembered a few locations I had seen before and I got curious. Luckily, Korea’s Tourism Organization website is one of the most complete tourism website I’ve seen in a while! A section of their website lists filming locations by dramas and each page includes a lot of information on the location and even the drama itself! Here are a few that I added to my list, hopefully, I’ll get a chance to visit those when I’m there! e000_026

I narrowed down my choices to these locations and dramas but you will find a complete list of locations on Korea’s Tourism Organization website ! The list also includes a few filming locations from movies such as 200 Pounds Beauty and My Sassy Girl. Hopefully, Secret Garden will be added soon e000_058
