All that 18-year-old Lydia Jones, who has already accomplished more than older people have, wanted was some advice. But of course she instead got a creep who was more interested in talking sex with her.
Jones has already founded an app called FitFlash and another one of her apps will be released in the fall, so clearly this gal has a super bright future. And like any entrepreneur does, Jones thought she would reach out to an already established person in order to get some advice. So that’s exactly what she did. But it didn’t turn out the way she was expecting.
So I professionally asked for help and it ended this way.

Here’s a closer look.
Well that dude is a tool. And clearly Twitter agreed.

Thanks for your courage for outing him Lydia. This should not have happened to you. I’ll spread the word about him

He’s disgusting. I hope people stop inviting him to speaking engagements/ working with him. Super creep.

This is a disgrace.
Lydia – happy to help out if I can, DMs open.

And guess what? This creep is not humiliated at all. Here’s what he had to say to Mashable.
“Richard Branson said all publicity is good publicity so I’m glad she’s spreading my brand around…Sure it’s inappropriate if she doesn’t admit “yes” to being sexually open. I could say she was harnessing me for free advice. I gave her some free advice too.”
This dude is a scumbag, so good thing his name is now being dragged through the mud.
