18-year-old suing parents for posting baby pictures to Facebook


AUSTRIA — An 18-year-old in Austria is suing her parents after they posted hundreds of her baby pictures on Facebook.

According to the lawsuit, the parents posted approximately 500 pictures of their daughter when she was a child to the site without her consent.

When she asked them to take them down, they refused.

“I’m tired of not being taken seriously by my parents,” she said.

The father, The Local reported, said he took the photos and so they are his.

“They knew no shame and no limit – and didn’t care whether it was a picture of me sitting on the toilet or lying naked in my cot – every stage was photographed and then made public,” the 18-year-old said.

The photos were shared on Facebook with her parents’ 700 friends.
