Writer's neighbor vandalizes her car over steamy books she writes 😱

In this story, a writer of steamy adult fiction books is shocked when she finds out that her neighbor has been vandalizing her property. The neighbor, Dalia, was the one responsible for putting religious leaflets warning about lustful behavior in her letterbox. When confronted, Dalia insulted the writer and called her work disgusting, stating that she found her husband reading it at night.

Shortly after, the writer found the word 'sl*t' painted on her door and caught Dalia keying her car, almost writing the word 'wh*re'. The writer called the police and Dalia is being taken to court over the incident.

While some may argue that the writer should have talked to Dalia instead of calling the police, others believe that Dalia's behavior was unacceptable and the writer was right to take action.

Read on for the reactions and comments from Redditors on this controversial situation.
