I have no words. A news story based upon a feeling.
Tulum has gotten a lot of bad press on TikTok this week and Yahoo picked it up.
The shooting that happened at a huge Air party in Pittsburg mid-April and killed a couple people and wounded lots more.
They have never arrested anyone for this.
Rather shocks me.
I was in Tulum long ago when other than the ruins and a few stalls selling souvenirs and food, there was nothing. I prefer it that way. My boyfriend and I hitchhiked around some which, of course, I would never do now.
Yep, I was there way back then, too. Although I live in Mexico now, I live on the west coast and have never been back. My high point in Tulum was finding a whole bunch of the beautiful seeds they call Ojos de Benado (deer eyes) in tangles of seaweed on the beach.
That article is ridiculous. Why would individual bedrooms in a whole house rental have keypads? Some paint splashed on door? Some guy outside they hadn’t seen before? And this somehow adds up to being a sex trafficking target?
That guest should never leave her home comfort zone.
I refuse to click on the story. No wonder they keep publishing this crap. People can’t stop themselves from reading it.
“Florida Woman” … that explains everything!
So just to add some context to my last post, search for “Florida Man” on wikipedia and you’ll see something like this:
" Florida Man is an Internet meme popularized in 2013, and then re-popularized in 2020. “Florida Man” refers to an alleged prevalence of persons being crazy or doing crazy things in the US state of Florida .
Apologies to any sane and relatively normal Floridian women who I may be offended by my first post.
Finally … sorry for the rapid fire posts, I don’t seem to have the option to edit what I posted, I also don’t seem to be able to post URLs. Is this normal?
There is nothing in the story that would give any normal person cause for concern @Annet3176 - why would bedrooms in a whole listing have locks, paint splatters so what, a man outside…wow big shock.
How they got from there to sex trafficking God knows.
Can’t believe the media was stupid enough to run this non story.
Sounds like too much Adderall to me. Side effects include paranoia, delusions, hallucinations and psychosis. I was more worried about the host when I read the story.
Were they “studying” on vacation? Hmm.
