Admit it or not, we live in a twisted world where apathy is more prevalent than empathy and monsters reside where humans were supposed to live. You might be confused by my cynical words but there is a reason for it.
In a disturbing state of affairs, a Japanese girl who has identified herself on Twitter with the handle ‘Wild Cabbage’ has opened up about the domestic abuse she faced at the hands of her grandfather.
The woman in a series of Twitter posts, described in detail about how her grandfather forbade her to eat and starved her when she lived with him about ten years ago. She also said that she was kicked in the belly and forced to spit or vomit the food when she was caught eating in secret.
As reported by DailyMail, her ordeal became so bad that her weight dropped to just 16.8 kilograms as she vomited her food owing to the physical abuse. In her post, she urged all the people who were suffering from such abuse or eating disorders to not wait, and ‘ask for help before it’s too late’.
When she was eventually rescued from her nightmare, the doctors said that the girl was 10 minutes away from death.
Of course, because this is the big bad world of the Internet, people refused to believe her saying that the pictures were photoshopped. Following this, she posted a few more photos that were allegedly taken when she was hospitalised showing bruises on her chest and neck.
While she did not divulge any further information about the whereabouts of the accused grandfather or about her immediate family, she shared a picture from her present life. The picture, fortunately, shows her in great health. (The girl on the left)
It shocks us to think that the girl who is now in her 20s had to go through such an experience without an intervention or help by anyone. We hope that the perpetrators of this crime were brought to justice.
