When The Angry Ex Posts Revenge Porn

When someone feels slighted or insulted, he or she will often do things that are unexpected. People act in the heat of the moment, and they sometimes do drastic things that cannot be undone.

For example, some people who have been dumped have then taken the videos and pictures of their exes that they collected while they were together, and they've posted them online for anyone to see. When these pictures are sexually explicit, these are collectively known as "revenge porn".

Not only is this exposure humiliating and emotionally damaging for the other partner, but things on the Internet often can't be taken back. They spread through various sites and blogs. They are passed around on social media. Even if the person has a change of heart and takes the pictures or the videos down, they may show back up because other people made a copy, and they now have the ability to upload them any time they want.

It only takes a second for people to decide that they're going to get revenge on exes by exposing these pictures to the world, but the damage can last a lifetime. This is bad enough when the other party consented to the creation of this material in the first place, but it's even worse when the people didn't know they were being photographed and recorded, and their intimate moments are shared.

If you've been harmed in this way by an ex-boyfriend or an ex-girlfriend, you should know that there are legal steps you can take to seek compensation in Illinois. To learn more about what to do, check out our site today.
