A TikTok user by the name of Vanessa Riley is gaining some well-earned internet fame after she posted a video showing how she exposed a man trying to cheat on his disabled wife through a dating app to said wife. Played to Billie Eilish’s “You Made Me Hate This City,” Riley shows the cheater’s dating app profile explicitly stating that he wanted to cheat, blaming his wife for being disabled.
“Married looking for a woman that wants a cheating husband for fun,” says Chris. “I work have a car. Wife is disabled not getting what I need. Not looking for lots of women. Just the right fit fo [sic] me.”
Somehow, Riley was able to find Chris’ Instagram account and get into contact with his wife. She messaged her a screenshot of her husband’s Tinder profile along with a warning that her husband may be cheating on her, and the wife quickly confirmed that it was indeed her Chris.
“Oh my god that’s Chris,” she replied. “I honestly don’t know what to say…I can’t believe this.”
But Riley wasn’t finished with her good work. She even gave the betrayed woman a bit of free legal advice that is useful to anyone who finds that their spouse is cheating.
“If I can give you a bit of advice, don’t tell him you know yet,” she wrote. “Get your ducks in a row, talk to a lawyer, figure out how to make his pockets HURT before you tell him.”
This may have been Riley’s first video exposing a cheater, but it was definitely not her last. She’s posted three other videos showing how she contacted the partners of men trying to cheat via Tinder and other websites to expose them, getting a heartfelt thanks each time. Another video shows Tinder accounts from multiple men saying they’re looking to have affairs, this time including their photos and asking viewers to help identify the men to warn their romantic partners.
Married women, as well as anyone who’s been cheated on or fears it might someday happen to them, have showered Riley in praise for doing this selfless work.
“You’re doing God’s work, Queen,” wrote one commenter. “From a married woman who would appreciate this, keep up the good work!”
Others, particularly disabled TikTok users, expressed how hurt they were to see Chris from the first video trying to justify his bad actions just because his wife has a disability as though that makes it okay and not monumentally worse.
“What hurt most is the ‘wife is disabled’ so why marry us then? If you don’t wanna truly deal with it?” said another user. “Disabled doesn’t mean no feelings.”
Next time Chris might consider communicating his needs to his partner as there are all kinds of ways to satisfy those needs and plenty of readily available gadgets to help with that. Then again, his wife is probably better off being his ex-wife.
