As the alleged Cierra Wilson sex video continues to spread online, many people are seeking out Wilson’s Facebook page in an attempt to find out more about her. Just as with the likes of Amber Cole and April Pratt, it seems there’s an insatiable appetite to ‘get to know’ the women from these videos.
The past few weeks have seen a slew of girls achieve fame (or infamy?) online. The internet was hardly porn-free before, but it seems there’s a new craze for picking up on videos and broadcasting them to the widest possible audience. Hence the likes of Wilson, Cole and Pratt becoming ‘famous’.
There’s a danger, of course, that simple curiosity will eventually become a kind of bullying. In some cases, the bullying is already in evidence. The recent RIP Sophie fuss, which seems to have fizzled out to become a hoax, is further proof that online comments can cause real world problems.
