'Women are stigmatized': Video of Maegan Hall riding mech bull goes viral as Internet slams sexist memes
LA VERGNE, TENNESSEE: A Tennessee police officer who was fired for having sex with six of her co-workers is in the middle of another controversy after a new video went viral. Maegan Hall of the La Vergne, Tennessee, police department, was fired after she was accused of having sex with her co-workers and sending them nude photos. She also allegedly took off her top at a 'Girls Gone Wild'-themed hot tub party, and performed oral sex on two officers while on duty.
A video of Hall riding a mech bull is now viral, prompting trolls to write a slew of sexist and disrespectful comments. She is seen playfully riding the bull and falling off it in the end. Several people have made misogynistic remarks, prompting a backlash on social media.
"While I'm pretty much ACAB for the most part and these memes are golden, I'm not going to share memes roasting the female officer who was sleeping with her co-workers. 5 officers fired and she's the one that goes viral? None of the men? That's what's wrong with the picture here. If men sleep around, it's cool. If women do it, they are stigmatized and immortalized into a meme. Shameful," a user wrote on Facebook. "And I can't imagine the hurt families feel everytime they have to see the memes," one user wrote in the comment section, while another said, "I have to say, you shocked me a little here. I'm glad you see the bs in it all."

"Agreed. Promiscuity is not the issue here, nor should it be. The issue is the prevalence of sexual assault and the toxic culture of permissiveness fostered by the insularity of all LEAs," one user wrote on Twitter. Another said, "If only there were some way to avoid this."
