You may have seen the image below circulating the internet over the last couple of weeks. A Colarado mother apparently forced her daughter to hold up a sign for a photogaprh that reads She had the girl pose with a sign that reads, “3/18/14: Mom is trying to show me how many people can see a picture once it’s on the internet.”. Kira Hudson posted the image on Facebook and commented, “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!”
This type of Facebook post has become popular over the last 6 months and other viral images iclude teachers posing with signs to show their students that news travelled FAST over the internet.
However, Hudsons attemot to warn her daughter about the dangers of social networking backfired when the images was posted on 4chan. Users of the image based bulletin board managed to find Hudson’s Facebook page, phone number and ever her home address!
According to the Daily Dot. The mother has been bombarded with prank calls and the original image has been edited to shame Hudson for her actions:
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:
Hudson has since told The Huffington Post;
“I am very grateful to all of the parents who have messaged my daughter and me, letting us know that because of our “experiment,” they were able to teach their own children more about Internet safety. This was one lesson that both my daughter and I learned very quickly!”
