Ohio failed to pass Bill 353 to join 38 other states and Washington DC to criminalize Revenge Porn. Mona Kosar from Cleveland 5 news interviews Aaron Minc about this and the latest Revenge Porn making headlines between Rob Kardashian and his former fiancee Blac Chyna after he leaked nude photos of her and posted defamatory tweets and instagram posts. Rob Kardashian’s X-Rated rant might not be a crime in Ohio but it is in California where Chyna is seeking further legal action under the revenge porn law.
Instagram quickly deleted Rob’s account after his posts attacking his former fiancée. He then turned to Twitter to continue his outburst accusing Chyna of infidelity, promiscuity and drug use. Instagram released a statement saying: “We value maintaining a safe and supportive space for our community and we work to remove reported content that violates our guidelines.”
While there is no law on the books in Ohio criminalizing revenge porn, Online Defamation Specialist Aaron Minc says, “victims can seek protection under other laws targeting child porn, voyeurism and harassment.”
“But civilly you can go and get a civil restraining order, there are also civil remedies like intrusion upon seclusion.” It is a form of an invasion of privacy, which Attorney Aaron Minc says can have a lasting emotional and psychological effect on a person.
“I’ve seen revenge porn destroy marriages, I’ve seen it destroy careers. It has caused people to drop out of school. It has ruined people’s lives” said Mr. Minc.
