An 18 year old woman disclosed that a TikTok star deceived her into having unprotected sex, coerced her into undergoing an illegal abortion, and subsequently refused to take responsibility. It has emerged that this incident is not isolated.

The TikTok star has a history of coercing victims into having abortions, causing some to become so distressed that they took their own lives. The perpetrator’s mother blamed the victims for bringing the issue to light.

AE (nickname) spoke to Khaosod Online at 1pm today about being coerced by Dong (nickname) into an illegal abortion, endangering her life. It was later discovered that Dong had a pattern of urging women to abort pregnancies, with some victims resorting to suicide.

AE recounted that in early February, she was contacted by Dong on Instagram. Initially indifferent, she gradually responded due to his persistent messages. On February 25, Dong invited her to meet at Chatuchak Park and then took her to a condominium in Pathum Thani. They had unprotected sex, after which their communication dwindled.

By April 18, AE noticed her period was late, initially attributing it to stress from exams and sports events. A pregnancy test confirmed she was nine weeks pregnant.

When AE informed Dong, he denied responsibility, and provided contact details for an abortion doctor, claiming this as his form of responsibility. AE was distraught, wanting to keep the baby as it already had a heartbeat.

Pregnancy hotline

Dong insisted she abort the pregnancy, citing his role as the family’s primary caretaker and how the situation would disrupt his duties. He claimed several friends had used the same doctor without issues.

AE hesitated but eventually sought advice from a pregnancy hotline, where officials assured her the doctor was qualified. Dong took her to a hotel in Rangsit on May 27 and ordered two pills from the clinic. AE experienced severe pain as the fetus was expelled.

Dong placed the fetus in a bag and left AE in the room. Despite severe bleeding, Dong was reluctant to take her to the hospital due to financial concerns. AE endured a night of pain and, by noon the next day called a taxi to a hospital in Bang Phli, Samut Prakan. Doctors treated her for vaginal inflammation and performed a curettage.

After AE had been discharged from the hospital, Dong ceased all communication and continued his reckless behaviour with other women. Outraged by his actions, AE decided to expose Dong.

Numerous women, claiming to be his ex-girlfriends, shared similar stories of being deceived, impregnated, and forced into abortions. Some revealed Dong’s threats to release compromising videos if they refused sex, leading some to comply under duress. Shockingly, Dong had falsely claimed to be a student at a prestigious university.

AE, distraught by Dong’s lack of remorse, reported him for statutory rape. In retaliation, Dong’s mother accused AE of defaming her son.

AE urged Dong to take responsibility and reform his behaviour, citing the severe consequences of his actions on his victims, reported KhaoSod.
