She admitted to being shocked by “the astonishing amount of ‘it could have happened to anyone’ and ‘we’ve all been there’” messages she’s received from friends and social media users.
“I could easily join in with the chorus saying ‘you’re right, it could be any of us’ but it shouldn’t be any of us, EVER,” Gina said. “It’s terrible that this has become a social norm. I am disappointed in myself and that I am a part of this social norm.”
Gina then vowed for this situation to permanently be a thing of the past, saying, “I made a conscious decision to do something epically stupid. One time is one time too many. I am awake now. I can promise this will NEVER BE ME again.”
