Update 2 – Concern continues to rage over lewd ‘selfies’ shared online – Site is taken down

“The popular singer had taken to Facebook to condemn the “very irresponsible men” who were sharing the photos of young women who were ‘friends’ with her on the social network.

“This is cyber bullying and I hope it is being dealt with, because I do not want to be that parent opening a mail and finding my daughter’s photo staring back at me,” she wrote.

Ms Losco also expressed alarm that “such young women would send pictures of a certain nature to peers they naturally can’t trust.”

In her clarification, Ms Losco said she wanted to make it crystal clear that the girls should not have taken the pictures in the first place.

“They are the most at fault, followed by whoever takes advantage to use such pics which land themselves in an array of trouble – revenge porn, money bribes, suicides … All forms of cyber bullying.

“But make no mistake in interpreting my disapproval of girls flaunting their naked body on a photo to be shared. We all make mistakes when we’re young and we’re all human but if we can bring such issues to light it might bring about something positive and maybe even save lives which are crushed in the aftermath.””
