A 17-year-old girl has found herself at the centre of an internet storm after web users shared explicit photographs of her giving oral sex to two men at an Eminem concert in Ireland.
Police are investigating the disturbing incident amid concerns that the images – apparently taken in a public area of the concert site and now widely circulating on the internet – amount to child pornography because she is under 18.
And dozens of internet commenters have been accused of sexism for mocking the girl and seeking to reveal her identity – while praising her sexual partner as a ‘hero’ and a ‘legend’.
Campaigners have warned that the sharing of explicit pictures is a ‘growing problem’ which it is almost impossible to prevent due to the fast-moving nature of social networking.
The photograph of the schoolgirl performing oral sex on a grinning man wearing a green hat was taken in the grounds of Slane Castle on Saturday evening.
She was also pictured kissing the same man while he sexually touched her, and giving oral sex to a different man on the same night.
American rapper Eminem was performing to a crowd of 80,000, with police making 63 arrests during the event.
