Journalist posts naked photos of herself on revenge porn website

Anna Richardson has warned people about the dangers of sharing intimate images.

A JOURNALIST HAS posted naked photos of herself to a revenge porn website as part of a new Channel 4 documentary.

Anna Richardson has explored various issues related to sex in previous documentaries and tonight turns her attention to revenge pornography.

The process involves someone uploading intimate pictures of a person without their consent. The victims of the practice are usually female.

Some people have also had contact details and links to their social media profiles uploaded with pictures or videos.

Richardson has issued a stark warning to people who take intimate photos of themselves and send them to others.

The UK Independent notes that the response to Richardson’s photos was disturbing, with one commenter writing: “I would destroy this b***h and treat her like the slut bag she is.”

A recent law introduced in the UK makes it a criminal offence to upload intimate pictures of a person without their consent. However, hosting the images on a site is not illegal, making it sometimes difficult to have photos removed.

At least 11 people have been found guilty of the crime so far.

Revenge Porn will air on Channel 4 at 10pm.
