Breakup Nightmare is a fantastic new film scheduled to air on the Lifetime channel this Sunday.

After the site administrator refuses to remove the photos, an all out battle ensues between the mother, the administrator, and the entire revenge porn industry. This feature stars Celesta DeAstis, Jennifer Dorogi, Mark Grossman, Joel Berti, Freeman Lyon, and April McCullough.

Lifetime’s Breakup Nightmare movie synopsis

Anyone who knows Barbara knows full well that she is a loving mother who will do whatever it takes to keep her children safe. So when her daughter comes to her with news that her partially nude photos have turned up online, Barbara makes it her business to contact the site’s owner to demand that the photos are removed. When she checks the site again to see if her daughter’s nude pics were taken down, she is in for the shock of her life after the administrators refuse to remove them and smack her with a cruel response, instead. In addition to their lack of professionalism and their insistence on using photos without the owner’s permission, it is not only disrespectful, it is also theft. Now, Barbara and her daughter realize that getting the pictures taken down will mean going public with their story and going up against a growing industry that is hell-bent on destroying the lives of innocent people.

Producers for the movie Breakup Nightmare have not stated that it is based on actual events. However, the plot of the movie is eerily similar to the true story of Charlotte Laws, a mother who went up against revenge porn site giant Hunter Moore back in 2012. That’s when it was reported that Hunter Moore used partially nude photos of Charlotte Laws’ daughter Kayla to use on his website. The photos were taken without her daughter’s permission, according to the Daily Mail. Charlotte learned of the event after Kayla confided in her that she had taken several photos of herself while in her room. At the time, Kayla didn’t know for sure how the website had obtained the photos but believes that somehow her computer was hacked after she removed the questionable photos from her own cell phone and uploaded them to her email account. It was later determined that Hunter Moore paid a man to hack into people’s emails for pictures.

Like Hunter Moore’s site, many revenge porn sites allow disgruntled exes to post damaging and personal information about their former spouses or girlfriends. In addition to photos, some revenge sites allow people to anonymously post lies, false accusations, and personal and sensitive information about an ex. The majority of the victims are female.

Charlotte Laws was not going to sit back and allow her daughter to be publicly humiliated without repercussions. Not only did she get her daughter’s photos removed, she also listened to the stories of other women who had been victims of the site. Hunter Moore’s site was eventually shut down, and he was sentenced to two and a half years in prison for identity theft and unauthorized access to a computer. Charlotte Laws told her daughter’s story in the book Rebel in High Heels: True story about the fearless mom who battled—and defeated—the kingpin of revenge porn and the dangerous forces of conformity.

In another more recent case, a woman’s life has been destroyed after her ex-husband put up a complete website defaming his ex-wife. According to the woman, who lives in Arizona, she has had a hard time finding a job after an email connected the website to her LinkedIn page.

Several states across the nation have consequences for revenge porn sites, making it a crime and subjecting the guilty party to hefty fines and time in jail. The state of California is one of them.

Do what you can to watch Lifetime’s newest movie on this very important issue this Sunday, March 6 at 9 p.m. Breakup Nightmare is produced by David Michael Latt, David Rimawi, Paul Bales, David Garber, and The Asylum Productions. It seems that the Lifetime Television Network is enjoying a “nightmare” weekend. The Inquisitr reported yesterday that the movie Nightmare Nurse premieres on Lifetime this Saturday, March 5.
