A television host has shared what she claims are ‘creepy’ text messages she received from a man while buying firewood. 

The Project New Zealand host Kanoa Lloyd shared screenshots of messages between herself and a salesman to Instagram. 

‘Why do women have to deal with this?!!!!’ she captioned the photos. 

The exchange occurred around midday on Monday, with the seller offering to drop off the firewood at Ms Lloyd’s home.

The seller then commented on the TV host’s appearance.

‘Can deliver you early this daylight evening if home… googled and viewed your Leon Wratt interview… oku he talavou (you’re very good looking [in] Tongan),’ he replied.

‘Cheers, very humid beer o’clock.’

She told the man she was going to cancel the order because of his comment

The text message exchange was shared to Ms Lloyd’s Instagram on Monday 

Ms Lloyd circled the compliment and captioned it, ‘NOPE’ before replying and saying she was going to cancel the order because ‘now a creep knows where I live’. 

‘Hey man. I’m going to cancel this order. I’m sure you think you’re just being nice. But imagine if a stranger, who knew your address messages your daughter or sister and said they googled her and said she was good looking? It’s not cool man,’ she wrote.

Furious at the order cancellation, the man told Ms Lloyd that there was no offense intended and to continue with the order. 

‘What the hell! No offense intended Kanoa! You choose to send with Mediaworks smashed all over your email…cease being so bloody precious & conclude this purchase please,’ he replied. 

‘I am allowed to email from whatever email I like without you being a creep dude. I’m not paying you anything and I’m blocking your number now. Bye,’ she said. 

‘But of course it’s my fault?’ she later captioned the photo. 

Some social media users slammed Ms Lloyd for sharing the exchange and agreed she took it too far.

‘Chill mate! He paid you a compliment! Yeah, it’s not very professional, but get over it. I’m sure if a woman said this to a dude it wouldn’t be splashed all over social media,’ one person wrote. 

‘She is kinda coming off “precious” everyone gets so offended these days PC has gone completely mad,’ another commented. 

Ms Lloyd informed the seller she was going to block his number and he said he wasn't intending to offend

‘Gosh don’t be such a snowflake Kanoa. Forget about it and move on. You’re making it sound worse than it actually is by blasting this all over social media,’ another wrote. 

Others agreed with Ms Lloyd and commended her for raising awareness of a regular occurrence.

‘Good highlight on something that happens a lot!’ one wrote. 

‘It is sexual harassment by man who has very unprofessional boundaries. If he wouldn’t say it to a man then its unacceptable,’ someone commented.
