ABC News gets a whole bunch of guys searching Angie Varona photos on Google

Maybe you haven’t heard of Angie Varona. Maybe you didn’t know that when she was 14, the now 18-year-old Miami teen put some photos of herself in bikinis and bras and panties up on her Photobucket account which was subsequently hacked, turning her into one of the most Googled 14-year-olds out there.
Fast forward four years and now she’s talking to ABC News Nightline and getting interviewed by George Stephanopoulos on Good Morning America. The teen cries in the Nightline piece. She wishes the photos had never made it out on to the internet. The parents lament that her life has changed.
But why, oh why, did ABC think it was appropriate to show the photos? During the GMA piece I saw this morning, the photos slowly scrolled across the screen like some Ken Burns Civil War documentary. They’re not nude photos, they’re probably not much more than you’d see on the beach, but if the piece is about the devastating effects they’ve had on Angie Varona’s life, what’s the point of showing them again? I mean it’s not like it’s November sweeps…oh, never mind.blog comments powered by Disqus
