After a 40-year-old woman posted photos of herself wearing a T-shirt that said “My ex-husband is an asshole,” on Facebook in 2010 she was taken to court by her ex, who filed suit for dignitary tort and won, The Register reported.
The Provincial Court ruled in favor of the ex-husband and found the phrase, “Mi exmarido es gilipollas” was an insult to his dignity. “Gilipollas”, which roughly translates to “asshole”, effectively damaged her ex-husband’s reputation the court ruled.
“I started crying because I couldn’t believe it. I don’t understand how the complaint could have ended in court. It’s only a T-shirt,” she said of the judgment in The Register story.
