I’m not going to explain this. I’m just going to post it.
However, I will say that in every article about it there are men underneath, joking about this attack. So glad they think viciously assaulting teenage girls is a joke…
A 28-year-old British man, Richard Brittain, most notable for his 2006 victory on the quiz show Countdown, tracked down a Scottish teenager who’d written a negative review of his self-published novel and shattered a bottle of wine on the back of her head. The aspiring author pleaded guilty to the 2014 assault in a Scottish court Monday, the Mirror reported.
Brittain, incensed at the one-star review, apparently tracked down Paige Rolland’s Facebook page, discovering that she lived in Scotland and worked at an Asda supermarket. He allegedly travelled 500 miles from London and found her at the store, crouching to stock a low shelf of cereal boxes. He hit her from behind with a full bottle of wine, leaving her unconscious and with a gash on her head.
According to the Daily Mail, this isn’t even the first time Brittain has been accused of stalking a woman online. The perfect princess of his novel, Ella Tundra, was apparently based on a woman he targeted, a creepy courtship he described in a blog post called “The Benevolent Stalker.”
