“Some of the other things that I’ve heard is … ‘Well, if you weren’t so young or good-looking, you wouldn’t have this problem.’ That is a terrible thing to say to somebody who’s having to endure cyber trafficking,” Book told Fox News. “My images were sold, bought for, traded, not with my consent, and it is happening every day to women, children across the country.”
“I believe that that is victim blaming,” Book said of some comments she received regarding the images that were stolen and distributed. She said it is likely the perpetrator will never be found, since the individual’s virtual private network bounced to Russia and Sweden.
Book revealed the intimate nature of some of the photos that were stolen. One was of “a really bad sunburn … one was after a lumpectomy that I went through in November.”
