When she was 14 years old, Angie Varona allegedly uploaded some photos of herself wearing bikinis and lingerie to the internet. She set them to be private, but they leaked and went viral. Now 18, Angie Varona has been speaking about how the experience changed her life.
The photos were not nudes, but have in some cases been digitally altered in order to make it appear that the girl is topless. With hundreds of thousands of copies of the original images, not to mention the subsequent fakes, online it is hard to see how Varona can ever get rid of them.
Recent weeks have seen a number of examples of girls becoming accidental online sex symbols. It’s becoming increasingly clear that some people fail to realise how dangerous it can be to put personal content online. It seems there are always people willing to share photos of young girls.
