Yesterday, we reported a story about a video that was circling the internet showing a woman being forced by her boyfriend to walk through the streets of New York naked, after he discovered she had been sexting seven other guys.
At first, there was speculation whether or not the video was real, or that it was staged for views, however, we can now confirm that this abhorrent act was indeed legitimate, and the victim – and her aggressor – have both spoken out about the incident.
In the distressing video, 24-year-old Jason Melo forces his girlfriend to walk down the street in nothing but a towel and boots, as punishment for her infidelity. He repeatedly belittles her, and can be heard saying in Spanish;
‘Take off your towel! Co-operate b***h. Show what you are, so pretty and so great. She’s a tart. Let’s go. Let’s go. Say hi to the camera and say why you’re doing this.
Now the guys you’re talking to will see if you’re worth it, talking to seven men while I was with you.”
He then removes her towel, as she tries her best to cover her naked body.
Yes, love manifests itself in many ways. Some people like to kiss. Some people like to hug. And I’ve even seen a video of two women eating their poop out of a cup. But the fact that this guy claims to love his girlfriend is absolutely ridiculous.
Fortunately, the unnamed 22-year-old woman has fought back, and now her ex-boyfriend has been charged with assault in the third degree, menacing in the second degree, and endangering the welfare of a child, after appearing in Manhattan Criminal Court on Thursday.
‘I was so scared of him, I didn’t know what to do, I couldn’t even think. He started threatening me, he threatened to slash my face.’
She said that since the being humiliated and attacked, she has gone into hiding in her apartment, afraid, all the while taking care of her newborn daughter.
The woman also provided photos of previous abuse she claims to have suffered at the hands of Melo, and can be seen in one photo with redness, brushing and scratching on her face after he allegedly punched her in the face in front of their two-month-old daughter.
She also stated that Melo said he would throw her down the stairs if she did not do as he ordered.
Melo has also begged for forgiveness in a series of ten Instagram videos posted yesterday. Melo, speaking in Spanish, appears to confess to the crime before begging his girlfriend and the world forgiveness.
He says in the videos;
“I was wrong to do what I did, sending her out naked, I apologize. If I could turn back time I wouldn’t do it. Please forgive me, I want you all to know that I am not as bad as you think. I just want to tell you all that I feel bad, as a man. You don’t know what was going through my mind.
I came from a woman, I have a daughter, and I have two sisters. But look what you pushed me to do. I am sorry for everything.
This the last video I will make, I don’t want any interviews, I don’t want anything.”
In a written comment below the final video, he writes:
“Last thing from me, just that I feel so bad about this cruelty that it’s opened my eyes to a person I loved blindly.”
On Melo’s Instagram page he also describes himself as an “entrepreneur” and “comedian”.
Well, the fact he’s now paying the price for his disgusting actions is giving us a good laugh.
