That title is a little misleading. Honestly, it’s harder to name these posts than you might think. I started my job on Tuesday, and I’ve been so busy. I’ve missed writing and will fill in more gaps from the week tomorrow morning!
This time around, Teen Mom 3 ex, Shoc, was arrested. This guy dated Briana Dejesus for quite a while, and the two were so serious that they decided it was a good idea to get tattoos of each others names. Sadly, once a break up happened in the midst of some cheating scandals, he decided to take to Instagram to post some revenge porn. Thanks to our friend Hunter Moore, revenge porn is becoming illegal throughout the United States, and it seems like Shoc just hadn’t caught on yet.
The video that Shoc posted contained no nudity on the part of Briana, although it did show her performing oral sex. Since any form of sex was involved, it got put into the “revenge porn” category, and it’s definitely a despicable kind of crime. While we might not all be Briana fans, we can probably all agree that we would never want someone to post pictures or videos of us doing those kinds of things online. The embarrassment only grows when both Shoc and Briana have such a large fan base due to her time on MTV.
While we’re not entirely sure when we will know about Shoc’s actual consequences for posting the videos, we do know that part of his bail is that he isn’t allowed to contact Briana or use social media. Briana has taken a final step in eliminating Shoc from her life by covering up the tattoo of his name with a skull on her side.
What are your thoughts on this? I just had a talk with students today about the dangers of social media and how quickly things like this can spread. I understand that Shoc might go to jail for this, but it doesn’t fix the fact that he allowed the videos to be seen by thousands of people in just one click. The same happens for anyone that decides to send compromising pictures of themselves. In the world that we live in, it’s important to think of all of the possible consequences for sending pictures like that. I don’t think I can stress that enough.
