Rape is no joke, being a victim should not create a hashtag like it’s an everyday lifestyle. No one should be degraded then have to witness the aftermath unfold via the web. Not only was her rape viral with photos and video,but a hashtag was created to continue mocking the incident and her pose.
While the incident is not funny, a young lady life has changed forever.
“The day the report aired, #jadapose was trending on Twitter in Houston. It’s been used more than 30,000 times since across the US.
The hashtag was attached to photos of people replicating the shot that Jada says is evidence of a crime.
A search for the hashtag #Jadapose is more likely to bring up a new kind of photo – women posing with their arms flexed, a measure of solidarity and a message to Jada to stay strong. There are also several hashtags – #StandWithJada, #Jadacounterpose and #JusticeforJada – promoting an anti-rape message.” (Information was gathered from http://www.bbc.com/news/blogs-trending-28239914)
Jada a 16 year old has bravely decided to speak out against the incident. I know myself at 16 would not have been so brave to stand up for myself. She is not only standing up, she sharing her story to the world.
Jada spoke to KHOU news and said: “There’s no point in hiding,” she told Houston’s KHOU news. “Everybody has already seen my face and my body, but that’s not what I am and who I am.”
I stand with Jada and other women victimize because of assault or raped! Do you stand against sexual assualt?
