I have no idea who this is but it seems to have driven Julie dicaro to lock her account.

what the horsefeathers, this is bizarre

fake edit: ohhhh i saw some talk (Sharma maybe) about this earlier but didn't know it was this topic. lmao this 21 year old woman pretended to be a guy, harassed women and somehow wrote for BP? Amazing.

It was really difficult to follow but from what I've gathered, the 21 year old girl posing as middle-aged, married Ryan Schultz built relationships with female baseball writers/bloggers/Twitter community members and somehow ended up getting some to share nude photos with her over the past 8 years. DiCaro deleted her Twitter because she was getting so much horsefeathers over how she was talking about it.

One of the victims did some digging and realized that "Ryan" wasn't who he said he was, and confronted the imposter IRL.

I try to not come across as victim blaming, but that was definitely an 'am I out of touch, no the children are wrong' moment in my head.

That's exactly what I was thinking. Someone very, very lonely.

Also, apparently Ryan appeared on podcasts and IS CLEARLY NOT A MIDDLE AGED DUDE. Listen here (Ryan starts speaking at about 1:00):

I kind of glanced over this the first time but I like that this fake persona was created 8 years ago but "it didn't take long for my friends and I to figure it all out"

how does julie dicaro play into all of this? i see she's getting tons of horsefeathers, but it's hard to tell if that's just your typical woman-hating twitter, or if she actually deserves it

This confuses me, but why did DiCaro delete(again) her account?

Hell, this whole thing reads totally like a joke Schur and Harris would have written for April.

I saw a tweet from her about "going to discuss this story on my show" and then a bunch of back and forth about the appropriateness of discussing this on her show, despite it being widely reported fairly quickly, and people accusing her of making others feel bad.

I assume she kind of laughed at the whole stupid story and embarrassed people lashed out at her.

I think this is a decent summation of the backlash against her, click through for the thread/replies for full context:

the crap dicaro has dealt with from neckbeard weirdos on twitter who have nothing better to do than harass her is beyond awful, obviously.

i do think she sucks at her job and has dumb sports opinions though (not to mention her apparent complete lack of familiarity or apparent desire to be familiar with anything but baseball). she's only a host on the weekends though, so whatever. at least i don't have to deal with her as a guest host every time someone is out, like rozner.

She also lashed out at Feder for reporting that The Game was going off the air.
