Australian tourist posts an innocent message asking for company while on holiday in Bali – only to be bombarded with crude replies by dozens of ‘disgusting’ men
- Jess Naskopoulous, from Melbourne, shared a post on the ‘Bali Bogans’ group
- The woman said she was travelling alone in Bali and looking for company
- She was quickly bombarded with suggestive comments from strange men
Jess Naskopoulous, from Melbourne, uploaded a photo of herself on Thursday saying she was looking to connect with other travellers
An Australian woman who took to Facebook to look for company while on holiday in Bali was forced to take down her post after she was bombarded with crude messages.
Jess Naskopoulous, from Melbourne, uploaded a photo of herself on group ‘Bali Bogans’ on Thursday saying she was looking to connect with other travellers.
‘I’m in Bali on my own for a few days and so if anyone else is travelling solo and is wanting some company (drinking buddy lol) let me know!,’ she wrote.
‘I’m staying in Canggu at the moment but no other plans until Monday,’ she said while sharing a photo of herself at Gili Trawangan.
But Ms Naskopoulous’s innocuous request took an ugly turn after the post became flooded with suggestive comments from men, some too vulgar to publish.

Multiple male users tagged their friends while making suggestive comments
Among the comments was a GIF of a running Forrest Gump that said ‘On my way’
One man tagged two of his male friends while commenting, ‘pack ya bags.’
A friend then followed up with the comment and wrote, ‘Give Scott a message. Good bloke, better company.’
‘Nah, would get to (sic) nervous hanging out with her,’ the friend replied.
One man also tagged his friends saying, ‘Surely [the boys] can show this young lady a pleasant time out on the town?’
Another user replied with a GIF of a running Forrest Gump that said ‘On my way.’
Ms Naskopoulos was forced to delete the post after receiving the messages
The comments were met with criticism by other women who slammed the men for being so forward and urged Ms Naskopoulous to be safe.
‘Be careful, lots of crazies in the world,’ one woman said.
Ms Naskopoulous replied saying she had intended to meet female friends through her post.
‘Some of you are f***ing gross she’s clearly just looking for somebody to hang out with. She obviously wants to feel safe,’ another woman said.
Ms Naskopoulous said she had been looking to meet a girl to hang out with but added: ‘clearly these people are disgusting…’
The post has since been deleted.
