Spoiled Girl Is Suing Her Parents For Posting Embarrassing Childhood Photos Of Her On Facebook And No, That’s Not A Joke
Embarrassing photos are the only fun part left of having a Facebook. Whenever I scroll down my newsfeed all I see are blatantly staged, filtered to death photos that make it looks like everyone’s living a glamorous life full of picturesque moments and well-groomed friends.
Sorry to say, but that’s fucking stupid.
That’s not what life looks like. That’s not what YOUR life or MY life looks like, so who are we kidding to pretend otherwise? Is everyone so hell-bent on appearing “perfect” just to impress our friends and family that we get so butthurt over a bad photo that people are suing each other now? Sadly, that answer appears to be “yes,” though I take careful measures to ensure that each of my profile photos…
…is worse than the last one.
Be it just an ugly photo…
…or one where I intentionally make myself look like shit:
“All your profile photos are terrible Rebecca, why can’t you just have normal ones so when I show people my girlfriend it’s not embarrassing?” was part of an actual conversation I had with my boyfriend earlier this week. I never would’ve suspected, but apparently he’s the type to sue his parents if they blew up his spot with embarrassing photos from his childhood, just like this unnamed 18-year-old girl from Austria who’s reportedly suing hers:
The teenager, from the southern Carinthia region of Austria, claims the intimate pictures from her childhood have made her life a misery.
She claims more than 500 images have been posted by her parents on the social media site without her permission since 2009.
Lawyer Michael Rami says his client has a good chance of winning in court.
The pictures show such childhood moments as having her nappy changed and undergoing potty training, according to The Local Austria.
She is quoted as saying: ‘They knew no shame and no limit – and didn’t care whether it was a picture of me sitting on the toilet or lying naked in my cot – every stage was photographed and then made public.
‘I’m tired of not being taken seriously by my parents.’(via)
Daily Mail reports that her parents have refused to delete the photos, which is the correct stance to have because this lawsuit is frivolous and a complete waste of time and money on everyone’s end.
The case is set to take place in November, with the father arguing that since he was the one who took the photos he has the right to publish them. If they lose, the parents will likely end up footing the bill of their daughter’s legal costs, as well as an undetermined amount of compensation.
Makes me yearn for the days of Myspace, where everyone was ugly and nobody gave a shit:
