    Fascinated to see some media picking up the issue! Here’s hoping none of them take it in the other direction or make it worse for you hun, congrats on more coverage!

    I forgot to post about it on here at the time but a few weeks ago many UK mers were getting pestered by what we believe to be another alias of Sam Knight again, and I was one of them. For those not in the know he tries to get mers to come ALONE to gigs down south in England for big pay, but as far as we know it’s an ambush of some sort and he’s known to the police. This time it was under the name Ashley Johnson (so either him or a friend maybe) and I didn’t realise right away but then humoured “her” for a couple sentences to confirm suspicions. Yup, told I’d be paid to drive down etc but not my mertender and asked why I even needed one. When I said it was for safety, got a reply of “Will my boyfriend do?” Pffffff hell no genius, oh my god bye.

    Got screenshots of it still as a reminder after blocking the creep. Be careful out there folks, especially new mers in the UK.

    Haha, I read the comments. Nasty. People can suck.

    The thing that got me is that 1) people think you 'identify' as a mermaid rather then just perform as one, and 2) that they think mermen aren't a thing.

    Also saying it's the "hypocrisy" of the #metoo movement. Lol.

    I waded through the cesspit of evil that is the comments section. Seriously don't know why Fox hasn't closed it down already.

    There's no need to politicise anything. If there's a better proof of the doctrine of total depravity, I have not seen it.

    Now not everyone who put up a sickening comment is a mervert in waiting, but the fact they excuse these idiots' behaviour is bad enough.

    True, but I wasn't talking generalizations.

    Okay, cool. It just came off a little unclear.

    That’s disgusting. That horrible misogynistic man should be arrested for harassment. This shouldn’t slide in 2018.

    Yikes I knew merverts were a thing but I've also noticed a few people adding me in my instagram who self-identify as "mermaid collectors" or who have pages entirely devoted to reposts of mermaid photographs. These things can sometimes blur the lines between supportive and creepy. I suppose it depends on the subject matter and if credit is given to the source.
