Who is … Bitterfissen Bethany?
A bad-mouthed blogger recently revealed as single mother Jeanett Veronica Hindberg, an office assistant from Farum.
So what’s so special about her?
Oh, where to start. She’s taking bad-mouthing to a whole new level, targeting wannabe famous Danes on her blog. And then at the beginning of this month she published a book, ‘A bitter c**t’s confessions’ (En bitterfisses bekendelser), in which the harassment continued to the irritation of some of her victims who started calling her a coward for concealing her real identity.
Oh, so that’s why she’s out?
Probably. Although she never saw her secret identity as a big deal. And since so many people were trying to guess it anyway – some even thought she was a man – she probably just wanted to put them out of their agony. But she didn’t see the downside, because since coming out, she’s been contacted by all manner of “media, grumpy idiots and horny men”.
So who has she harassed?
Among the more famous ones are reality TV star Amalie Szigethy, “who is as orange as she is stupid”, and equestrian star Tina Lund, who she claims abuses her step-children and stable girls. And then there’s Berlingske newspaper’s blogger Anne Sophia Hermansen, who Bitterfissen calls the meningsfissen (opinion pussy) Anne Sophia Herpes
Why does she do it?
She doesn’t like them, I guess. Although her vitriol isn’t always predictable. For instance, she’s against politicians, but pro royalty. Sounds like a good candidate for the guillotine!
Is it, at least, a good read?
Not really, although she does have a lot of followers on her blog and Facebook, who are now afraid the lack of anonymity will cause her writings to stop.
How can people be sure it’s her?
They can’t. Some of her neighbours told Ekstra Bladet they didn’t recognise the woman in the photo, who looks too young and has dark hair.
Did she have a response to that?
Of course. Ekstra Bladet are “imbecile f**kheads”, she said on Facebook. “And my neighbours apparently aren’t updated on my new hair colour. I’ll remember to put up flyers next time.”
