Politician harassed online

01:57 Nov 26 2011 Ipoh, Perak, Malaysia

May is a politician who uses social media to reach out to her constituents. She uses the chat function a lot to gather information, disseminate information and connect with the youth in her area.
In such an instance she was chatting with a young man who claimed that he was from her area. During the online discussion, he asked her if she would like to see a picture of herself. When she agreed, he sent her a link which contained a photograph of her superimposed on a woman's body who was clad in a bikini. May was disturbed by the picture and decided to block the individual for her account. He started harassing her by threatening to put up more pictures of her which had been digitally altered. She ignored his threats and eventually he stopped communicating with her.

This is another way women's reputations can be compromised by unethical individuals who stoop to such debased acts to undermine women.
