Memes on police officer Maegan Hall have taken over social media after she and six of her male colleagues were exposed for having s*xual affairs at the workplace. Tennessee’s La Vergne police department has since attracted massive attention for its investigators' behavior.
Although the people who participated in the encounters have either been fired or temporarily suspended, netizens have been having a field day trolling Hall for her actions.
Maegan Hall, the now-former cop at the La Vergne Police Department, made headlines after she engaged in s*xual relationships with fellow officers while on duty and inside the city-owned property. Hall also allegedly took part in a "Girls Gone Wild"-themed hot tub party where her ch**t was exposed to co-workers.
In addition, Maegan Hall was accused of sending explicit videos and photos to her colleagues. She also allegedly discussed having a “three-way” with the wife of one of her colleagues, which reportedly never transpired.
It is important to note that while the aforementioned events occurred, Maegan Hall was married to her college sweetheart Jedidiah, a state park ranger and the son of a pastor. Officers involved with Hall claimed that she told them that she was in an open marriage. However, her husband was reportedly visibly upset when he saw his wife kissing another officer’s wife during a party.
It has since been reported that Maegan Hall and Jedidiah are working on their marriage despite the scandal.
After news of the controversy broke, a video of Hall riding a mechanical bull went viral on social media. She was in uniform and playfully riding the bull until she fell off.
What is the viral "police girl" meme that Maegan Hall is a part of?
Despite the incident being incredibly serious and life-altering, netizens had a field day when the story broke out. Although the scandal came to light earlier this week, memes took over the internet as recently as yesterday following the extensive media coverage.
Several internet users created memes related to Maegan Hall, her husband Jedidiah, and the officers involved. Netizens joked about the police department and the current state of Hall’s marriage and made lewd comments about the police officer in question.
Concerningly, Maegan Hall was the only officer to be trolled on social media despite her male counterparts taking part in explicit actions while themselves being married.
