Hey, I need your help.
A friend of mine has recently discovered her pictures have been used without her permission, and in a disgusting manner. As a mother, this will likely tug at your heartstrings, but please, hear me out and help us fix this.
My friend has photos of her angel babies up on a website we're both on. In case you do not know, an angel baby is a child that is either stillborn or died in utero or out from various causes. Well, the pictures of her angel baby have been stolen, and have been modified in a disturbing manner. I'm going to post the link below, but do NOT click if you cry easily, or if you are easily moved, or disturbed, and believe me, these images will disturb you.
I'm guessing that made you as ill as it made me, and think of how it made the mother, who found the loving picture of her child modified and edited in such a manner. She was devastated. The woman who did this, her name is Alexandria McCrosky, and she has been approached about the images by many people. For the last 3 days, we've all been sure we were being ignored, then we got a reply finally.
From Daniel Williams:
“I own the website that hosted this.
I am not taking it down.
Please keep in mind that any publicly-listed or published photo on a public website is liable to be taken advantage of and manipulated. Names were not used. By posting further information, you are opening yourself up to further self-exploitation. See http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Streisand_effect for a formally documented example/theory.
You may feel free to contact me or anyone else you think might help, but we will not change our minds or reply.”
As you can imagine, this was not what we were hoping. We were hoping to apppeal to better nature to get these pictures taken down, but upon further looking into these two people's facebook pages, we've discovered that they both have sick and disturbing pictures all over their facebook accounts.
Spread the word, pass the links around, and help us get these pictures removed! It's theft, and it's wrong! If you know of any news groups who would cover something like this, please let us know! Pass this to other moms, pass this to friends. Help us keep these angels as pure as their mothers remember them!
Here is the petition we have to get this taken down.
And here is the facebook group we have up trying to get this crap down.
