A Chicago man is suing 27 women, claiming he should receive $75 million in damages after discovering unfavourable comments on their Facebook page. Nikko D’Ambrosio, 32, alleges that after his name and photo were released late last year, hateful remarks flooded the Chicago chapter of the Facebook group Are We Dating The Same Guy, seriously harming his reputation.
According to Fox News, the complaint claims that “The defendants broadcast their outrageous, cruel, and malicious lies about the complainant with the knowledge that the statements were false or with reckless disregard as to whether or not they were true.” “[Their] misconduct should be viewed as heinous and completely intolerable in a civilised community because it is so outrageous in character and so extreme in degree that it is beyond all possible bounds of decency.”
This exclusive Facebook group, which started in New York City, is a part of a larger community where women openly discuss their bad dating experiences in different places and ask for guidance on any “red flags.”
As per Mr. D’Ambrosio’s complaint, the incident that was mentioned on the Facebook page occurred subsequent to his meeting a woman at an event in Chicago last year, which resulted in consensual intercourse that same evening. They were never in an exclusive relationship, according to Mr. D’Ambrosio, despite a string of “unremarkable” dates. He claims that after that, the woman disseminated false information about him on Facebook, saying that he flaunted his wealth, became overly attached too soon, and “kept talking about how I don’t want to see his bad side, especially when he was on business calls.”
Many more women responded to her post with similar stories or by bringing up a previous warning about his behaviour.
A little over a year ago, I went out on a couple dates with him. Before we went to bed together, he gave me the information I wanted to hear, and then he vanished. One woman said, “I’d stay away,” according to a screenshot included in the court document.
“He’s been posted here before,” a second woman wrote. The poster said that because she refused to spend the night with him, he called her names in a number of SMS.
Mr. D’Ambrosio claims that the lady who initially tweeted against him used her real name, but that she later changed it to anonymous after his attorneys got in touch with her last month.
