Tumblr under fire for ‘ignoring’ revenge porn posts
Tumblr acts as if it’s a staunch champion of women’s rights by supporting such groups as Planned Parenthood — but it still refuses to help tackle revenge porn, victims say.
A 27-year-old Bronx woman sued the blogging site in Manhattan Supreme Court last week after a tape of her having sex with her boyfriend 10 years ago, when she was just 17, was posted in December and shared 1,200 times. The post included the woman’s name and a link to her Facebook page. She only learned that the private X-rated video was on the site when strange men started contacting her through Facebook with obscene messages such as, “Did you like the way his c–k felt? Sure looks like you did.” “I was devastated,” the woman told The Post. “I haven’t stopped crying since.” Tumblr finally removed the video three weeks after it was posted — a day after a reporter contacted the company.
