Unless you have been in hiding, you are aware that Rob Kardashian and Blac Chyna have been butting heads on social media about Blac Chyna and her alleged cheating. Rob has gone very far and released nude images of the former exoctic dancer and mother of his daughter on Instagram which may result in jail time for the jilted lover. This act is called Revenge Porn.

While most people are aware of the laws of posting nudes on social media, this is for those that are not informed. According to Wikipedia.org, Revenge Porn, is the sexually explicit portrayal of one or more people that is distributed without their consent via any medium. The sexually explicit images or video may be made by a partner of an intimate relationship with the knowledge and consent of the subject, or it may be made without his or her knowledge. The possession of the material may be used by the perpetrators to blackmail the subjects into performing other sex acts, to coerce them into continuing the relationship, or to punish them for ending the relationship.

In more than 30 states in the U.S., there are laws that could mean six months of jail time. For example, in California, the state in which Rob Kardashian committed the crime, has a “Revenge Porn” law codified as Penal Code 647(j)(4). This law makes revenge porn a misdemeanor. The punishment is six months in jail and a $1,000 fine with additional fines for repeat violations.

We spoke with a few #PynkGirls and here are their thoughts on Rob Kardashian, Blac Chyna and the entire Revenge Porn fiasco.

“No one has the right to negate the consent of another. Regardless of the state of their relationship. Rob can call her out on all of her acts of infidelity but he crossed the line when he posted their private pictures. That is a cousin to rape culture and it shouldn’t be tolerated.”Blogger and “Woke” Professional, Bria Goldwire

“Regardless of how the relationship ended or how deeply he feels she hurt him nothing or no one should make you resort to revenge porn. What’s even more disturbing is the comments from others justifying his behavior. Once upon a time he claimed to love her and she birthed his only child. You don’t do that to someone that you love.”– Stephanie Penn, Editor-in-Chief of Dailyvenusdiva.com

“I think with Chyna it’s like we’ve seen it all before and she’s the one that showed it to us, so we didn’t see anything new. But for a person that’s not posting nudes on social media, it would have gone too far and a complete invasion of privacy not to mention copyright law.”Owner, PR House LA, Octavia McClain

“Him blasting her nudes is unacceptable, but she needs to take accountability for her actions that contributed to the fiasco. She knows damn well he’s unstable. She knows he rants on social media every time they go through something. She purposely tormented him that she had another man in her bed. She had to have known it would make Rob snap. I feel like there’s no such thing as bad publicity to her. She probably doesn’t even care that he aired all her dirty laundry & the nudes. It honestly seems like they have an emotionally abusive relationship, with Chyna as the abuser. As human beings we need to be accountable for the things we say and do to others and be prepared for the consequences when we take advantage of their vulnerability. If the genders were backwards on this scenario, would the conversation be different?”Owner of DoorBella, Nail Technician, Rose Miggins

“Revenge porn is totally not acceptable regardless of what is happening in a relationship whether it ends or is used as a way to keep your mate. What Rob needed to remember is that at one time he was madly in love? Or infatuated lust with her and the outcome was a beautiful daughter. When people have hurt feelings we become angry and our thoughts and actions become distorted. For both individuals the thoughts should be the children (daughter and Chyna’s son) and what is best for both of them.”– Therapist, Tyra Gardner

What are your thoughts on revenge porn? Has it gone too far? What would you do to prevent the situation or handle the situation after it occurred?
