Facebook Picture of Bikini Clad Teenage Girl Causes Uproar


blue_bikini_on_the_beach_11091Georgia teenager, Chelsea Chaney, posted a picture of herself on Facebook wearing a bikini.  She did it to warn other girls of what could happen if they posted ‘intimate’ pictures of themselves on the social network.  Now she has filed a $2,000,000 lawsuit.

Ms. Chaney, who is now a college freshman, said she was “horrified” when the school’s technology director used her photo in a slide saying, “Once it’s there, it’s there to stay.”

She said she is suing for two million dollars because she wants to ensure this never happens again.

The teacher who gave the presentation apologized and told her he chose the picture (a bikini shot of her with a cardboard cutout of the rapper Snoop Dog) randomly, WSBTV reported.

Ms. Chaney doesn’t believe him.  She said that the picture was not her profile picture, and he would have had to search her Facebook site to find her bikini clad photo.

Her lawyer, Pete Wellborn, told WSBTV that the photo was taken out of context to suggest she was “a promiscuous abuser of alcohol.” He also rejected the suggestion that it might be her fault for posting the photo online.

“That sounds a lot to me, like the horrible old cliché of, that’s how she dressed, so she had it coming to her,” he told the TV station.

The school issued a statement saying it believed the incident had no legal implications.

Ms. Chaney’s photo has become wildly popular.


In another Georgian school incident, a teenager has been suspended for putting his school principal’s mug shot on Instagram.  He told his followers that he thought he had been ‘busted for a DUI.

When the photograph was discovered, Riverdale High School senior Keandre Varner was called to the principal’s office.

“I didn’t like, really didn’t intend to defame her character,” said Varner, who works part-time at a local Waffle House, according to his Facebook page.

The principal, Jamille Miller Brown, said he was mostly upset because it insinuated he had been arrested for a DUI, when the mug shot was actually taken for ‘unpaid parking tickets.’  He asked the police to place Varner in custody, and they refused.  Miller Brown suspended Varner for four days, just before finals.

The reason for his suspension was given as being “belligerent” when Miller Brown confronted him.  Other parents say that their children have been threatened for having the picture on their phones.

    Please remove the picture of Australian Model Emily Scott. You are confusing the whole internet community with your inaccuracies. See, the whole issue is about a picture and you are making matters worst.

    You post a professional model’s picture under the heading of “Bikini Clad Teenage Girl” with the apparent intent of confusing people that they are one and the same. How tawdry.
