Mother's Facebook Lesson Takes Different Turn After 4Chan Finds Daughter's Photo
A Colorado mother who attempted to teach her daughter a lesson about Facebook use wound up getting blasted by others.
In an effort to show her daughter how quickly something can spread online, Kira Hudson posted a public photo of the young girl and asked her Facebook friends to share it, WHNT reports. She had the girl pose with a sign that read, "3/18/14: Mom is trying to show me how many people can see a picture once it's on the internet."
In a screenshot of the post, obtained by the Daily Dot, Hudson explained, "My 12-year-old daughter doesn't understand why she can't have an Instagram or Facebook account... Please 'like and Share' ... She just doesn't get it!"
But Hudson probably didn't expect the photo of her daughter to wind up on 4chan
an image-based bulletin board. Users on the random imageboard /b/
eventually found Hudson's Facebook page, home address and phone number,
according to the Daily Dot. On Wednesday, the mother received prank
calls, and pizzas were delivered to her house. Some also edited the
original photo to include an obscene message.
Apparently, other 4chan users wanted to teach Hudson a lesson about public shaming:
