Amber Rudd joins in Twitter exchange after her daughter reported being ‘ghosted’
The former Cabinet minister weighed in after daughter Flora E Gill joked about being ghosted on Twitter.
Former Cabinet minister Amber Rudd has joined in on a Twitter exchange after her daughter, journalist Flora Gill, joked about being “ghosted” online.
Ms Gill posted a story about a man who ghosted her, then sent her a direct message to tell her she was “the most accomplished person he’s ever slept with”, asking her followers for the “perfect” response.
While Ms Gill went for a classic, “sorry, who is this?”, her mother, Ms Rudd, had other ideas for responding to the man’s message.
Replying to her daughter’s tweet, she said: “Your mother would like to speak to him.”
The guy that ghosted me 10 years ago on my gap year, after I lost my virginity to him, has just slid into my DMs to tell me I’m ‘the most accomplished person he’s ever slept with’ and I think this might be why I became a journalist.— Flora E Gill (@FloraEGill) October 23, 2019
Quick I need the perfect response?!?!?!?! pic.twitter.com/HqHpTVve7l
The stern response reached over 2,000 likes, with one Twitter user suggesting the man would “get deported” by the former home secretary.
Your mother would like to speak to him .— Amber Rudd (@AmberRuddUK) October 23, 2019
Ms Gill replied to her mother’s threat, saying: “Mum – I’m only kidding! I’ve never had sex! I’m an innocent, young, virgin sex writer!”
😂😂 Mum- I'm only kidding! I've never had sex! I'm an innocent, young, virgin sex writer!— Flora E Gill (@FloraEGill) October 23, 2019
Ms Gill promised her followers that she would keep them updated on the situation but it appears that the man has not yet responded.
