A 17-year-old girl has found herself in hot water after being photographed performing oral sex on a man while at the Eminen concert in Slane Castle, Ireland.
The police are now involved, and are investigating whether or not the photograph constitutes child pornography. This will determine whether charges are to be brought against the man in the picture and the man who took it.
The Daily Mail reports that, although the young girl’s identity still hasn’t been released, many internet commentators are being accused of sexism and discrimination as they seek to reveal her identity while hailing the guy in the picture a “hero.” With social media as it is, the sharing of such explicit images is almost unstoppable, as are the lewd and insulting comments which accompany them.
At the time that the picture was taken, the famous rapper Eminem was performing at Slane Castle to a crowd of 80,000, and although there were over 60 reported arrests at the gig, Eminem was unaware of what took place while he was on stage.
One of the less tactful tweets, posted by Bridget Moynihan, proclaims: (The girl) “has only herself to blame, out in the open surrounded by people with camera phones. What did she expect?.” The girl in the picture is in high school and comes from Western Ireland.
It goes without saying that the girl, whose identity is still unknown, has been left extremely distressed and embarrassed over the picture, and the comments which have accompanied it.
A source representing the girl told the Irish Sun: “This is a very sensitive matter and the girl’s family are distraught.This is so out of character for her. She’s currently very emotional and confused about the whole thing.”
A police spokesman from the local Irish police department, known as the Gardai said: “Gardai are aware of the incident and are inquiring into the matter. Gardai have spoken to the female involved and it would be inappropriate for us to comment any further.”
