Last Saturday, Twitter user @MiamiBud2 shared two horrifying side-by-side photos on her page.
The first shows her holding a red drink in one hand, with what looks like purple powder settled at the bottom of the cup.
She captioned the photos, “So I was at a party yesterday and some guy tried to drug me but me being the brilliant, sharp and quick person I am I noticed right away, went to the bathroom threw it down the sink and left.”
The second photo shows the inside of the cup, full of purple powder, once the red drink had been poured out.
OP’s tweet racked up over 88,000 likes and 28,000 replies in less than 48 hours’ time.

In subsequent tweets, she explained that the guy who slipped the drugs into her drink “is a millionaire, has business, properties (super loaded) and he was cute too.” She added that her friend had warned her to look out for this guy beforehand.
You would think it was a guy who gets no pussy right? Wrong this guy is a millionaire, has business, properties (super loaded) and he was cute too. The fact that he did that didn’t surprise me at all. In fact my friend called me beforehand and said that it might happen.— Rose Bud (@MiamiBud2) May 25, 2019
She also had a reply for the many victim-blamers in her mentions: “that can f—king happen anywhere at anytime,” she explained. “I’m not gonna be locked up in fear because men have no self control.”
“But you still went” yeah that can fucking happen anywhere at anytime. I’m not gonna be locked up in fear because men have no self control. I can CLEARLY handle myself.— Rose Bud (@MiamiBud2) May 26, 2019
It was ecstasy for those of you wondering.— Rose Bud (@MiamiBud2) May 25, 2019
“Listen to the women crying for help,” she added.
Everyone under this post can suck my dick. You don’t get to know the whole story. You don’t get to see behind the scenes. You know nothing but what I told you, learn and move on and say nothing else. Stop talking so fucking much and listen to the women crying for help, bitch.— Rose Bud (@MiamiBud2) May 27, 2019
Many of the replies were from women who had experienced similar situations.
It’s worth noting that 8 out of 10 rapes are committed by someone known to the victim. In other words, it doesn’t matter if someone you “trust” is the person handing you a drink.
This is why I stopped partying. I got drugged by a “friend” & everything went black. Idk what happens & I remember laying down outside my building and had to wait outside cus someone took my phone, money and keys ?♀️

Girls always ALWAYS be on the lookout! Never feel like you’re in the wrong if you refuse a drink. Unless you break the seal yourself, don’t accept drinks. #1 thing my mom taught me when I started going out??

Been here. Done this.
He was waiting at the door when I exited the bathroom, so I pretended to be drugged to see what he would do. He tried to convince me to leave the party and climb into the cabin of a yacht parked behind the club.
He was not successful. https://t.co/bppQwxKT31

This is disgusting. When I went out my freshman and sophomore years, I’d watch over friends that drank a ton and made sure that whenever guys would hand them drinks that I’d just pour them down the drain too so kudos to you for remembering

Others chimed in to describe what they would’ve done in a similar situation.
Baby girl that should have been thrown in his face if anything just for the drama

I would have just handed him the cup with the drug residue, gave him a disappointed look and left

Unfortunately, we don’t know why OP didn’t get this predator in trouble with the police (could be his powerful position prevented such action) or whether she called him out in front of the other partygoers to ensure no other girls were drugged.
Did you warn the other people there?? Other girls could be victims. Glad you got out safe!

To all the ladies (and gentlemen!) out there, remember to never ever ever take an open drink from someone—regardless of whether they are well-known, influential, good-looking, rich, powerful successful, or trustworthy.
And if you want to be extra safe, nab yourself some drink testing chips:
Here’s the website to a company that makes drink testing chips, in case you’re ever unsure. https://t.co/HoLxd0WwQ5
