Grace Dent v Mufadal Jiwaji – send for The Women
“@gracedent reminds me of a girlfriend I once had. By girlfriend I mean that time I accidentally made love to an ugly abhorrent horse.”
In Jiwaji’s world women are all little girls who crave to be pretty and be told so. Is Jiwaji is like most men (but maybe not him), he would be delighted were Dent to knock on his front door, offer a big warm smile, call him cute and tell him that after she cooked him a great dinner she will shag his brains out. (No, not “make love”, Jiwaji. She just wants sex. Right now. With you.). No woman to any man is an “ugly abhorrent horse”. Her only crime is not to have rubbed his leg and offered him a profiterole.
Dent noticed the tweet. She found out that Jiwaji works for the PR firm Hill+Knowlton. Grace Dent is one of their clients. Job done, then. Dent is big news on twitter. Hill+Knowlton will get your talked about.
Dent and Jiwji exchanged emails:
@gracedent: “I’m wondering, as a public relations person for a firm I work with, what your thinking was in sending me this message?
@mufadal: “it was naive and ill-warranted. I won’t delete it, as I ought to bare the full brunt of my idiocy.”
@gracedent: “You’ll bear the brunt of your idiocy at 10am tomorrow morning when you’re unemployed. Good luck.”
Shame. Dent has wit and intelligence and better jugs than Ian Hislop. Telling a working stiff in the PR game he’s losing his job for calling her a moose is lacking. Better to have sliced him in two with a barb. Real women know how to do it. Cue The Women:
