Parents are embarrassing. Even cool ones can do awkward stuff in front of your pals from time to time. It's just the nature of their job. Most parents who do embarrassing things, like whip out their kid's baby pictures, probably don't think they'll ever be sued for it.
An 18-year-old Austrian woman is suing her parents for just that reason. Austrian news publication, The Local, is reporting that an unnamed woman is suing both of her parents for sharing over 500 pictures of her as a baby to their hundreds of Facebook friends.
"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,”Austrian teen
Most of us don't think twice when our parents post our potty pics but this teen says she's "tired of not being taken seriously" by her parents. Though they have been warned, her parents have refused to remove the images and so she has chosen to take her case to court.
The case will be heard in November and The Local reports that there is a decent chance the girl could win their case. If they can prove that the images violated her privacy, her parents could be subject to the country's privacy laws.
Austrian teen suing her parents for putting photos on Facebook. Good on her. Parents should have to have permission. https://t.co/ZXlQwJAoFk— Una Mullally (@UnaMullally) September 15, 2016
