Remember that “Ivy League” educated commuter who unloaded an f-bomb tirade on a Metro-North commuter rail line conductor? Well, she’s pretty upset with the internet for, you know, making her look bad. The New York Daily News reports Hermon Raju has hired a PR firm for some “crisis management,” and in her letter to the pros, she says “the public only knows the two minutes of my dispute that were shown on the video that went viral,” saying there’s plenty more to the story. “I can honestly say I feel raped by the internet.”
As you may recall, the video captured by another rider on the New York City bound train caught Raju railing on a conductor in a hail of profanity and the classic line, “excuse me, do you what schools I’ve been to and how well-educated I am?” Still, Raju doesn’t get what the fuss is all about–despite the uber-cool conversation starters she’s got now, like being one of Keith Olbermann‘s Worst Persons in the World, and being talked about by CNN’s Anderson Cooper.
“Unbelievable how my dispute on the train made me so despised,” she writes.
