Last week, Reality TV star, Robert Kardashian, broke the internet when he decided to share naked pictures and video via twitter and Instagram of his ex-girlfriend and mother of his child, Blac Chyna. Read about it HERE.
Rob’s actions are not only disgusting, but they are also illegal in many states.
Revenge Porn is defined as:
the sexually explicit portrayal of one or more people that is distributed without their consent via any medium. The sexually explicit images or video may be made by a partner of an intimate relationship with the knowledge and consent of the subject, or it may be made without his or her knowledge. The possession of the material may be used by the perpetrators to blackmail the subjects into performing other sex acts, to coerce them into continuing the relationship, or to punish them for ending the relationship. Halder and Jaishankar (2013) define Revenge porn as: “an act whereby the perpetrator satisfies his anger and frustration for a broken relationship through publicizing false, sexually provocative portrayal of his / her victim, by misusing the information that he may have known naturally and that he may have stored in his personal computer, or may have been conveyed to his electronic device by the victim herself, or may have been stored in the device with the consent of the victim herself; and which may essentially have been done to publicly defame the victim”.In the wake of civil lawsuits and the increasing numbers of reported incidents, legislation has been passed in a number of countries and jurisdictions to outlaw the practice, though approaches have varied. The practice has also been described as a form of psychological abuse and domestic violence, as well as a form of sexual abuse.
Blac Chyna has lawyered up and gone on the defense.
