Hell hath no fury like a woman scorned.
When Heather Antonsson discovered her husband of 16 years, Egill Antonsson, had been cheating on her with their male gardener, she prepared the coldest dish of revenge imaginable.
First, she created a name-and-shame website – www.egillantonsson.com – detailing the specifics of her husband’s wandering ways. It reads, in part:
“This website is dedicated to my cheating husband Egill Antonsson. A man who had it all but decided to throw it all away for a quick romp.
“Egill and I were married for 16 years. We have 3 kids and until recently we were, or so I believed, happily married. We had it all. A nice house, a loving relationship, beautiful kids, a dog and enough joint income to make our living comfortable. What more could you want? Well, it looks like Egill also wanted John. Our Gardener. On the 15th of October 2015 I received an anonymous call to say that Egill was no longer attending one of his by biweekly swimming sessions down our local swimming pool. He was in fact having an affair.”
The site goes on to say: “This website is in memory of you my soon to be ex-husband Egill Antonsson, liar and cheat!”
But she didn’t stop there.
Heather then hired a local SEO company to boost the site’s Google ranking. Now, whenever a person searches “Egill Antonsson,” the first thing that pops up is the story about him banging the gardener behind his wife’s back.
The plot seems to be having the desired effect. Egill, who is currently looking for a job, says he hasn’t been able to make it past the interview stage. He blames the site.
“Today, most employers type in the name of any potential candidates into Google to see if they can find anything untoward,” he told Journalistic.org “When they search mine, the site comes up with the full story of my relationship and even a picture of me.”
He is now suing his soon-to-be-ex-wife to take the site down.
“I think it should be removed as it invades my privacy,” he said.
Here’s hoping these two can eventually work out their differences.
