Italian assistant referee Diana Di Meo released a video to her over 100,000 Instagram followers addressing private pictures and videos of her that went viral recently on social media. She labeled the hacking of her personal content revenge porn.
She filed a complaint and is hopeful whoever hacked her will be caught.
"I'm afraid that someone has entered my cell phone, my iCloud. I am trying to [stay strong] but not everyone succeeds. I discovered these videos thanks to some guys. Obviously, I filed a complaint. They are tracking down the culprits and those involved in sharing the videos because this is also a crime."
Di Meo described the situation as "non-consensual pornography" in the caption of the video she released addressing the situation:
Revenge porn, also referred to as "non-consensual pornography" and also sexual abuse through images, is the act of sharing a person's intimate images or videos without their consent.
I'm here to talk about it, many of us can't do it and they hide.
I hope to give a voice to all those victims who are blamed, when in reality the culprit is on the other side of the screen, which is shooting or 'just sharing'.
Today the victim is me, tomorrow it could be a person close to who maybe now is watching the videos and smiling.
It is never the victim's fault, remember that.
Always with your head held high, guys, always.

Let's hope something positive comes out of this for Diana. First they catch whoever hacked her and then she takes off into superstardom. Soccer is a different sport.
