Twitch Streamer Vows to Sue Deepfake Porn Site
Twitch streamer has taken a bold stance against the malicious use of deepfake technology. A porn site recently posted explicit videos depicting deepfakes of QTCinderella and several other content creators, including Pokimane, Sweet Anita, and Maya Higa, engaging in sexual activities without their consent. This outrageous breach of privacy has sparked a firestorm of controversy.
Atrioc Brings Attention to the Problem
The deepfake porn site in question gained notoriety when Atrioc, a popular Twitch streamer, was caught using the site in a viral clip. Although Atrioc has since apologized for his actions, the damage was already done. QTCinderella went live on her own stream to condemn the abuse of her and her fellow streamers’ likenesses for these pornographic purposes. She criticized Atrioc for highlighting the website to thousands of people and expressed her frustration with the constant exploitation and objectification of women on the internet.
QTCinderella’s Promise to Sue
During her emotional broadcast, QTCinderella expressed her anger towards the website and the people behind it. “I promise you, with every part of my soul, I’m going to fucking sue you,” she declared. Her vow to take legal action highlights the severity of the issue and the need for regulation of deepfake technology to prevent further abuse and exploitation.
Regulating Deepfake Technology
While the UK is taking steps to regulate deepfake technology and criminalize the use of someone’s image to create explicit material without consent, other regions have yet to take similar measures. The unethical use of deepfake technology for political misinformation and porn is a growing concern, with female celebrities often bearing the brunt of these malicious actions.
The Dangers of Deepfake Tech
Deepfake technology uses sample data and AI to project a person’s face and voice onto an existing video, making it nearly impossible to detect if executed well. The potential for abuse and exploitation is high, as evidenced by this recent deepfake porn scandal. It’s crucial that the tech community takes steps to regulate and prevent further misuse of deepfake technology to protect individuals and their privacy.
