A sex tape featuring Blac Chyna leaked online over the weekend sparking outrage.

On Monday morning, an anonymous Twitter user posted the video, which reportedly showed Chyna engaging in oral sex with a man. And as the footage began trending immediately, her attorney Lisa Bloom slammed the post on Twitter.

“Revenge porn — posting explicit images without the consent of everyone in those images — is a crime, a civil wrong, and a form of domestic abuse,” Bloom wrote in defense of her client Blac Chyna. “It’s also a way to try to slut shame women for being sexual. Girls have killed themselves over revenge porn. It’s not a joke.”

It doesn’t matter, Bloom added, if the people in a tape consented to being recorded. What does matter is whether they consented to sharing that recording with the rest of the world.

“Our bodies, our choice, each and every time,” Bloom said.

“Upsetting and troubling”

Chyna’s rep, Walter Mosley, echoed Bloom’s sentiments in a statement to People in which he described the leaked tape as “just another attack against a woman.”

“There’s not enough information right now to even know what happened,” he said. “An anonymous source posted a tape — could be from an ex-boyfriend, or stolen, someone texting it to someone else. It’s upsetting and troubling.”

Unfortunately this isn’t the first time that Blac Chyna has had to deal with revenge porn.

Her ex Rob Kardashian reportedly posted nude photos of Chyna on Instagram after the two of them broke up. She has since sued him for revenge porn. Kardashian denies the allegations.

According to TMZ, Blac Chyna’s ex-boyfriend Mechie has identified himself as the man in sex tape and was the one that filmed the explicit encounter on her phone last year.

Mechie also claims he has no idea how the sexual encounter was released.

 

Facebook tries to fight revenge porn

The world’s largest social media networking site has a new way to try and combat revenge porn: send them your nude photos.

It’s not quite as strange as it sounds. Facebook has a new system, which will be piloted in Australia, where intimate photos can be “hashed,” given a unique digital fingerprint so that images with that fingerprint can’t be re-uploaded. All users have to do is send the photos through Facebook’s Messenger.

“We are delighted that Facebook is helping solve this problem – one faced not only by victims of actual revenge porn but also individuals with worries of imminently becoming victims,” said Carrie Goldberg, a New York-based lawyer specializing in sexual privacy. “With its billions of users, Facebook is one place where many offenders aggress because they can maximize the harm by broadcasting the nonconsensual porn to those most close to the victim. So this is impactful.”

Right now, the “hashing” system is limited only to Facebook, but it could grow beyond that, and should, according to Hany Farid, a professor of computer science at Dartmouth who helped develop PhotoDNA.

“The deployment of this technology would not prevent someone from sharing images outside of the Facebook ecosystem, so we should encourage all online platforms to participate in this program, as we do with PhotoDNA,” he said.
