Rob Kardashian Under Fire for Revenge Porn Posts Against Blac Chyna

KardashianInstagram shut down Rob Kardashian’s page Wednesday afternoon for posting what appears to be revenge porn against Blac Chyna. Following the Instagram shut down, Kardashian tweeted, “Since Instagram shut me down everyone peep my twitter lol” and then proceeded to tweet the same nudes of Chyna. Kardashian’s destructive social media frenzy against Chyna is”allegedly” because he caught her cheating. As of Wednesday afternoon, both social media platforms have removed all of the “not safe for work” (NSFW) images of Chyna.

The never-ending issues between Kardashian and Chyna have hit a new low. Their toxic relationship has surfaced on social media numerous times. The heart of the current beef appears to be Chyna’s relationship with another man. This is yet another chapter in the chaotic relationship between the two. Recently, it appeared that the couple aiming for reconciliation but that was short lived. Now, Kardashian is under fire for posting revenge porn against Chyna.

This latest stunt has many questioning if Kardashian’s actions are criminal. Instagram and Twitter have removed the revenge porn images, but not before they were shared an innumerous amount of times. Revenge porn laws now exist in 38 states and depending on how hard the victim wants to pursue charges, sharing NSFW photos could result in jail time. Angela Rose, executive director of PAVE (Promoting Awareness | Victim Empowerment), expressed how important it is to educate today’s teens about consent, respect, and healthy relationships. Rose released the following statement:

Rob Kardashian’s behavior of posting nude photos of Chyna without her consent is classic revenge porn. Being unfaithful merits no justification for this. Even though these images have been deleted from his personal account, it is virtually impossible to ensure that they are deleted from all of cyberspace and this can have a devastating effect on her long-term.

Many young people look up to reality television stars and this unhealthy and bullying behavior can have very devastating consequences. All too often in our work with high school students across the US, we hear about teenagers posting or sharing nude images without consent and this can lead to a prosecutable federal offense. We need to educate our teens about consent, respect, and healthy relationships.

Rose, the leader of the PAVEHollywood initiative, is on a mission to educate and empower members of the entertainment industry to prevent sexual violence and shatter its silence. Contrariwise, many tend to placate and fuel this type of bullying when it involves celebrities as if it is simply entertainment.Kardashian

Under California’s revenge porn law prosecutors must show the victim suffered emotional distress. Before the images were deleted, even Chyna “liked” the revenge porn photos making it almost impossible for her to prosecute her ex. Even still, Chyna’s legal team is looking into all options in seek of justice for their client.

Kardashian’s family has shared their disappointment with the decision to post revenge porn. They are adamantly against public feuding and feels it not only adds insult to injury but also hurts their child. The family maintains loyalty to Kardashian and wants to help in any way they can, but their real concern is the couple’s child, Dream.

Chyna alleges Kardashian beat her and he has accused her of cheating. It is apparent that they are not healthy enough for each other in their current state. Instead of therapy, the couple has taken to social media to air their dirty laundry. Both are wrong, however, Kardashian is now under fire for revenge porn posts of Blac Chyna.
