Girl Has Her Fashion Designs Stolen By Another Student, Devises A Plan To Humiliate Her With Bait

If you’re willing to do the crime, get ready to do the time. And then pay the price. However, one fashion student from South Korea — let’s call her Jane — thought she would get away with stealing her coursemate’s — we’ll name her Grace — design. But she didn’t. After getting robbed of her hard work, Grace devised the perfect revenge plan that made Jane do the time (humiliate herself in front of a huge crowd) and pay the price (get expelled). Continue scrolling to find out how the mastermind did it and let us know in the comments if you think the punishment is just.

After Reddit user sgy0003 shared the story, it immediately went viral, generating over 12,000 upvotes on r/ProRevenge. As for the payback, well, most think it’s well-deserved.

“Yeah, and also it’s very satisfying reading that the disgusting chairman was also replaced by someone that was much better at doing their job,” one commenter said. “Brilliant! Grade ‘A’ revenge,” another one added.

r/ProRevenge has been featuring similar stories since November 2012. During the years, its community has been constantly growing and currently unites over 990K members.

No wonder that number is so big. According to Karyn Hall, the director and owner of the Dialectical Behavior Therapy Center, revenge seems to be one of the deepest instincts we have. It’s is a form of establishing justice, a form of protection, a kind of enforcement of social cooperation.

Here’s what people said about the whole ordeal

Not exclusive to Korea, it happens in China all the time. Students intending to study overseas are amazed when told that plagiarism is not tolerated in western universities and will result in expulsion.

Sometimes I read about a revenge that seems excessive, but this is just right. Grace did nothing wrong. Based on Jane's previous theft Grace simply made available some bait. Jane took the hook and then played the entitlement/victimhood game, where she should get everything she wants and if she doesn't then she's a victim. Given her lack of study and work Jane should have flunked out anyway. And her corrupt father needed to be replaced.

Oh good, more public shaming. I will get the tar if you have the feathers. My pitchfork is sharpened.

The shame was 100% earned when Jane and her father did corrupt things to advance their own interests. Grace was the victim, but had the grace not to play that care. As for Jane, she tied herself to the pole and eagerly applied a coat of tar and feathers all by herself. Public shaming for bad actions has been a social tool used to hold people accountable for centuries and in lots of cultures. It is appropriate when the sins don't arise to a legal level. In fact, it's a big part of social accountability.
