All parents want the best for their children and will go to great lengths to protect them.
Actress Kiersten Warren (Independence Day, Divine Secrets of the Ya-Ya Sisterhood according to IMDB) went to twitter this week to warn parents about an interaction that took place between their daughter and a stranger.
Warren who was married to Kirk Acevedo since 2005She has two children – one from a previous marriage and a daughter from that marriage, Scarlett Acevedo.
Scarlett is now 18 and, although Warren didn’t say where, she was at her place of work when the interaction took place.
Her first tweet about the interaction begins with the words of her daughter Scarlett –
Mommy, there was this really creepy man in here. – Scarlet Acevedo
I assume that if a “normal” creepy guy hit on Scarlett, she would have dismissed it as just a guy who was creepy. But if she reached her mother in that case, I figured it would be worse than that.
Turns out it seems to be a lot of worse.
Warren says she was bathing when she heard from her daughter and immediately rushed out of the house to Scarlett’s place of work.
Along the way, she contacted Scarlett’s father, who, as you might imagine, got into his vehicle and drove straight to his daughter’s.
When Warren arrived at her daughter’s place of work, the facility’s owner was already there, watching the security video.
Warren continues the story –
Scarlett tells her mother that an elderly man entered the establishment and began complimenting her and asking her questions, including asking her age.
He then offers her a ride on his motorbike and heaps more compliments.
Of course, the wisest and safest answer to the motorcycle question is no, so Scarlett told him that.
The man reportedly got angry when Scarlett refused him the opportunity to take a picture of her face.
This is where it gets scary – Scarlett overhears him saying something on the phone while she’s helping another customer. The words she heard raised huge red flags.
Did you get that?
No, she’s here in LA – yes, beautiful girl
Could it be that the man was just talking to a friend about a girl he just met at a store? Yes that could be. But it could also be something far more sinister.
From here, the questions became more ominous — not on the surface, because it could have just been “small talk” — as he asked her about her schedule and where she parked her car.
Now it gets very strange.
After Scarlett denied all his advances and dodged his questions, the man with the purchased goods left the store.
Warren goes on to say that they (as a family) have decided that Scarlett should no longer work at this store (out of prudence, I would assume).
Warren’s Twitter thread should be a good reminder of that Everyone that your actions affect others – and a message to men: don’t be creepy.
And ladies, if a situation raises red flags, respect them and protect yourself — even at the cost of appearing rude. I would rather be seen as rude than be remembered as a victim.
