Baby Role-Playing is Instagram’s Disturbing New Trend
It turns out that nothing you put online is safe from those internet creeps that lurk in the darkest of corners, not even pictures of your baby.
The latest 'trend' to take over Instagram is more than disturbing. It's just wrong.
Apparently, some users have been stealing baby photos that other people have posted online. It doesn't end there though.
Once these creeps have the picture of your baby, they post it themselves, complete with a new name. They'll even go as far to make up the babies entire back story including time of birth, weight, height, etc.
Some accounts even claim to be adoption agencies, such as @adoptionrp, which is one of the more milder baby role-playing accounts. While these people may just be doing this for what they call fun, it's still disturbing that this is what people do in their free time now-a-days.
It may seem like some innocent fun, and some of it may be, but most of the parents who find their baby's photos on some fake page with a new name find the whole experience disturbing and a violation of their privacy.
If you want to have your own fake family in the digital world, that's your business, but don't be stealing pictures of other peoples' babies to do so.
And for those of you with one or more social media accounts, just know that once you put a picture out there, it could end up everywhere, for better or worse.
