This Is Not Jean Snow

This is not Jean Snow. Well, not the one anyone reading this post would think they know.

I was taken by surprise on chat today when someone I know popped up, asking me what he should wear for the recording of the video. Video?


It didn’t take long for him to figure out I had no idea what he was talking about, and he then pointed me to this Facebook event page, for the making of a “Harlem Shake” video in Shibuya.

I fucking hate “Harlem Shake.”

If you look at the event page, the creator is a “Jean Snow.” Surely there are other Jean Snows in the world, you say? Yes, of course. But a “Jean Snow” in Tokyo, organizing something that is media-related? And look at that “Jean Snow” profile page — it was created on March 7, the day the event was created, and it has no other info, no friends, nothing.

Some fucker took my name.

I have reported the event to Facebook, and I tried reporting the profile as someone impersonating me, but the Facebook mobile verification keeps failing for me. Some of my friends have reported this profile as someone impersonating me, and if you are my friend on Facebook, I would appreciate you doing the same.

I do not like someone using my name to promote something they are doing without my knowledge, and I especially don’t like it when it’s associated with something that I have no interest in.

This is the Jean Snow who lives in Tokyo.
