Was the photo real? According to Claudia Conway, it most certainly was:
“On TikTok, Claudia Conway on Monday posted videos confirming that the picture was authentic; those have since been deleted from her TikTok account but Twitter users reposted copies of the videos. In the videos, a visibly upset Claudia Conway speculated that her mother may have accidentally posted the image. ‘I’m assuming my mom took a picture of it to use against me one day and then somebody hacked her or something,’ she said. ‘I’m literally at a loss for words. If you see it, report it.'”
All of this caused many on social media to alert law enforcement and urge that Claudia’s mother be arrested if she did indeed post the photos of her daughter. That response led Claudia to ask that people not do so:
“In several TikTok videos posted Tuesday morning, Claudia Conway urged people to ‘stop calling authorities.’ She said that she and her mother will be “taking a break from social media” and will work on their relationship. Claudia emphasized that making threats against her family also puts her in danger. ‘I know that my mom would never, ever post anything to hurt me like that intentionally, and I do believe she was hacked,’ Claudia Conway said in one of the TikTok videos Tuesday.”
Hacked? Isn’t that what people often say when they get caught posting inappropriate things online? And it turns out those claims are usually complete bullshit.
At the moment, the Conway family seems in desperate need of counseling.
