I haven’t heard anything that makes me think these were actually “deep fakes,” that is created with machine learning to create video. Still photographs sound more like they were photoshopped or otherwise conventionally composited, and I don’t know if any still photographic composites are considered deep fakes even if they’re done using AI.
The block quote is misleading but from the source:
A Bucks County woman anonymously sent coaches on her teen daughter’s cheerleading squad fake photos and videos that depicted the girl’s rivals naked, drinking, or smoking, all in a bid to embarrass them and force them from the team, prosecutors say.
After analyzing the videos, detectives determined they were “deepfakes” — digitally altered but realistic looking images — created by mapping the girls’ social media photos onto other images.
You’ll be telling me that band/cheerleaders/etc members don’t wear their uniforms all day everyday next!
Not all day every day, no, and never band members, but on game day the cheer squad (conventional cheerleaders, pyramids, shouting from the sidelines at football) AND the pom-poms (dance squad, half-time basketball game routines and part of the marching band formations for football.) BOTH wore their uniforms ALL DAY.
Only coincidentally, those were of course the all-girl portions of sports adjacent squads and all had classic midwest cheerleader tight sweaters and pleated short skirts.
The players would wear their jerseys, of course, usually as an overshirt over their standard tshirts and jeans.
double standard much?
Shooping is the term
Nah, mate, it’s all just down to low blood-sugar; honest.
i remember that Lampoon issue fondly
As despicable as the act is, and as just as the charges of child harassment are (they need a “bullying a child as an adult” charge just so someone has to live with that shame on their record forever), I’m glad they avoided the pornography angle for this one, mainly because one could see that skating on a technicality, while “Harassing your child’s teammates” is pretty much a slam-dunk by the looks of it.
An Eyebrow Is a Terrible Thing To Waste.
It amuses me to try and transpose that image to my experience of secondary education in the UK in the 1980’s.
“You want us to miss class and stand in that muddy field and cheer on those thugs(rugby)/losers(soccer) like we give a shit if they live or die, let alone win or lose a pointless game?
School Spirit? Get F*&ked!”
We specialise really early in the UK - Between ages 12 and 14 you are already dropping subjects to concentrate on fewer, by 16 your entire time table will be filled with 3-5 of the same subjects for two years. I think that has an impact on the “extras”.
I wonder what her husband has to say on the matter.
It can’t be only me who wonders what Mr. Potato Head has to say?
Another overly hands-on parent… this time in Florida:
This is like on of those old “Good News/Bad News” strips from Mad Magazine
“Good News! Homecoming Queen will look so great on your résumé!”
“Bad News! A criminal record is going to look so bad on your résumé!”
