ARE YOU KIDDING … TEEN SUES PARENTS FOR POSTING EMBARRASSING PICS ON FACEBOOK WITHOUT HER CONSENT …
In an age of social media narcissism where teens do nothing but post embarrassing pics of themselves, an 18 year old Austrian teen is suing her parents for posting photos of her without her consent. The teen claims that since 2009 they have made her life a misery by constantly posting photos of her, including embarrassing and intimate images from her childhood. It is the first of it’s kind case in Austria. No kidding? Why does this sound more like the whining nature of today’s immature millennials who can’t seem to cope with anything and think they can sue for being uncomfortable? Believe it or not, if it can be proven that the images have violated the teen’s rights to a personal life, her parents could lose the case and they could have to pay some financial compensation for her pain and suffering, and will also be liable for her legal costs. UNREAL. According to accounts, when the teen girl asked her parents to take them down, they refused. She stated, “I’m tired of not being taken seriously by my parents.” BINGO!!! There lies the issue. A frivolous lawsuit because a teen feels slighted by her parents.
A 18-year-old woman from Carinthia is suing her parents for posting photos of her on Facebook without her consent.
She claims that since 2009 they have made her life a misery by constantly posting photos of her, including embarrassing and intimate images from her childhood.
Her lawyer Michael Rami says that to date, her parents have posted 500 images of her on the social media site without her consent, and he believes she has a good chance of winning in court.
The shared images include baby pictures of her having her nappy changed and later potty training pictures.
“They knew no shame and no limit – and didn’t care whether it was a picture of me sitting on the toilet or lying naked in my cot – every stage was photographed and then made public,” the 18-year-old said. The photos were shared on Facebook with her parents’ 700 friend.
Despite her requests, they have refused to delete the photos – prompting her to sue them. “I’m tired of not being taken seriously by my parents”, she said. Her father believes that since he took the photos he has the right to publish the images.
