“Your reputation has been crucified.” Kim pointed out.

“By who?” Caprina crossed her legs. “I’m curious, by who? I’m still getting plenty of work.”

“Some of your fans admonished your actions. Some say they won’t longer support any projects you’re connected to…”

Caprina sipped a cup of tea. “They were never true fans to begin with.”

“But doesn’t this concern you?” Kim leaned forward. “That you’re being dragged like this by those who supposedly supported you?”

Caprina had just about enough of Kim and her incessant questions. It seemed she asked the same question over and over, to the point of insanity, and was begging Caprina to give her some sort of soundbite. The woman asked for it and Caprina was about to grant her the wish. “Can I address the camera?”

“Most certainly!” Kim pointed to the camera for Caprina.

Caprina turned to the camera. “Let me ask you if the following applies to you. Do you go online often during the day, sometimes interrupting work and other pressing matters? Do you argue with complete and total strangers about your point of view? Do you bad-mouth someone you never met, probably will never meet, and who is probably doing better than you? Are you overweight? Do you have a belief in God and claim to be religious yet you slander someone the moment opportunity presents itself? Does any of that apply to you? If so, I’m afraid you suffer from Bitter Cunt Syndrome. But, there is a cure! You know what that cure is? I’ll tell you what that cure is! Mind your own fucking business.”

And just like that, Caprina’s reputation was instantly restored.

When the interview aired, Caprina was beloved again. She became a hastag – #CaprinaSays – and a meme. Shirts were printed out with her likeness. Every woman were posting their own Caprina-esque antidotes to their detractors and haters.

And it was all because of Dimitri.
