" These phony photos falsely and maliciously depicted plaintiff in a clearly derogatory and false light as some overly bold and overly aggressive sexual person, which plaintiff in fact and truth is not, Ali's attorneys said in the suit."
New York, July 31 - A woman in the US has filed a $123 million case against social networking site Facebook for not deleting revenge porn images uploaded by her old friend.

According to the lawsuit, Facebook ignored repeated requests from Texas-based Meryem Ali to remove lewd images purported to be of her, uploaded presumably by her friend Adeel Shah Khan of Illinois.

Khan negligently, knowingly and/or intentionally, maliciously and/or with gross negligence violated Ali's privacy, the suit alleged.

The $123 million lawsuit takes into account 10 cents each for Facebook's 1.23 billion users.

Khan created an 'imposter Facebook' account under Ali's name, and then uploaded several explicit images including at least one involving a sex act, a report in The Wrap said.

These phony photos falsely and maliciously depicted plaintiff in a clearly derogatory and false light as some overly bold and overly aggressive sexual person, which plaintiff in fact and truth is not, Ali's attorneys said in the suit.

According to Ali's attorney, Ali befriended Khan around five years ago, but they never had a serious relationship.
