The year-old said her likeness has shown up on porn sites, humor sites and reddit. There are also numerous unauthorized Facebook profiles, Twitter s and YouTube channels, all claiming to be Varona -- one Facebook fan has more than 41, likes.
A recent Google search of "Angie Varona" turned uporiginal search items, including 63, photos tagged with her name. Many of the photos out there now, Varona said, are not her originals, but are remakes or women pretending to be her. They Photoshopped the top off.
This summer, in an effort to spread awareness about the dangers of photo hacking, Varona decided to tell her story to the " Miami Montage ," a publication put together by high school journalism students at a University of Miami, then decided to tell her story to "Nightline. Varona was just 14 years old when she ed some provocative photos of herself wearing lingerie and bikinis -- no nude pictures, she said -- to the image-sharing website, Photobucket. It was decision that she said has ruined her life. At the time, Varona said the photos were intended for her then-boyfriend's eyes only, but when someone hacked her privatesuddenly her private photos were everywhere online.
Varona immediately told her parents, who were "dumbfounded" when their daughter came to them crying. Her father, Juan Varona, said that while he was "disappointed" in Angie, he was angry at the people who were spreading the photos. None of her pictures are any worse than you would see in Victoria Secret.
The family called the police and hired a lawyer, but they continued to hit dead ends as photos of Varona's provocative poses rapidly multiplied on the Internet. Basically they told me, 'yeah, you have to sit and watch it all happen. When her high school classmates got hold of the photos, Varona said she was tormented and called a "slut" and a "porn star.
But the nasty comments went way beyond mere opinions. Varona received numerous threats, which she said became so severe that her family had to contact the FBI. She changed schools twice, but eventually, her family decided to home-school her.
Unable to escape the humiliation and to stop the photos from spreading, Varona said she became depressed and turned to drugs, alcohol, even tried ran away from home. Varona has been criticized for putting these provocative photos of herself online in the first place, especially given that in most of the photos she is wearing little clothing. She says she was just dressing like any other normal teenager. I dress with clothes that show, I guess, off my body in a way, but I don't do it on purpose Because I am larger on top it just looks more provocative, but it shouldn't stop me from wearing it.
Some even claim she "planned" to have her photos leaked because she wanted attention, which Varona denied. I don't want to do anything having to be famous… [people] don't realize that it really does hurt the person, and people do make mistakes. Varona said she regrets posting her photos online and worries that this now seedy reputation will follow her for the rest of her life.
My parents didn't even want me to have Facebook. They didn't want me to have a MySpace.
As her family still fights to have the widely-traded photos removed, Varona said she struggles to lead a normal life. The teenager, who wants to socialize on Facebook, text or her friends and apply to college, said she feels trapped. It was pretty embarrassing.
I never wanted to show my face anywhere. For the now tech-obsessed generation, Varona said she wants people to learn from her story and not make the mistakes she did. Return to the "Nightline" home.
