Apparently some people are still yet to realise that LinkedIn is a professional website and not a place for sexual harassment.
Having used the networking site to advertise two positions at her UK company, 19-year-old Kayley White also asked if anyone knew of any part-time weekend work available in the area.
It was then that the trainee accountant received a message from an unknown man at a nearby firm saying, “You can suck my d**k any time you like sweetheart.”

Screenshotting the message, White then shared the man's comments publicly on the site in a post that has since been viewed over 8,000 times. White also tagged the man's employer in the post with the caption, "very professional."
The man in question claims the message was sent by someone else who had access to his account.
Speaking to The Daily Mail about the message, White says she decided to take action to highlight how regularly women receive "rude and suggestive messages" from men.
