Diana Di Meo did not deserve what is happening to her after she revealed that she has been the victim of revenge porn.
The 22-year-old official from the coastal city Pescara announced on Instagram that private and explicit photos and videos had been stolen from her and posted to social media apps like WhatsApp and Telegram. She reported it to cops and the people responsible will be facing up to six years in jail for sharing the content without her consent.
Di Meo told police: “I’ve been locked up at home, I’ve been crying and throwing up for two days.”
“The football official is also a law student alongside being a referee, and revealed: “These are private videos that have been stolen from me.
“Someone must have managed to get into my mobile phone. Otherwise, I have no idea how they were taken.
“I have filed a complaint and the authorities will take care of everything. I thank all the boys and girls who are writing to me from all over Italy.
“It is a situation that I do not wish on anyone, I am trying to resist but not everyone succeeds. We must report these videos and the people who continue to share these things.”
She continued: “I’m here to talk about it, many of us can’t do it and hide.
“I hope to give a voice to all those victims who are blamed, when in reality the culprit is on the other side of the screen.
“Today the victim is me, tomorrow it could be a person close to those who maybe now are watching the videos and smiling.”
