Fox News Anchor Files $10 Million Lawsuit Against Facebook and Reddit

Fox 29 anchor Karen Hepp has filed a bombshell of a lawsuit against Facebook, Reddit, XNXX, Imgur, Giphy and 10 other sites after a photo of her was used in advertisements for dating apps and erectile dysfunction as well as on a pornography site.

The lawsuit was filed in Philadelphia’s federal court on Wednesday.

Hepp, who lives in Merion Station on the Main Line, says in the lawsuit that she first learned her image was being used without her permission on the various sites when her co-workers and managers at Fox 29 alerted her to it.

According to the suit, the photo was used in an ad that appeared on Facebook for a dating site that encouraged users to click to “meet and chat with single women.”

On Imgur, a photo-sharing site that reportedly has some 300 million users, the same image of Hepp appears in a section labeled “milf” — we’re assuming you know what “milf” means — where it has more than 11,000 views.

As for Reddit, the social media aggregation site, Hepp’s photo is in the subreddit r/obsf, an abbreviation for “older but still f***able,” according to the lawsuit.

It gets worse.

Somebody took the Hepp photo and turned it into an animated GIF — which appears on the animated-GIF site Giphy — showing a man masturbating behind Hepp.

According to the suit, the photo was also used in an ad for erectile dysfunction as well as on a pornography site.

Hepp says in the suit that she’s not exactly sure where the photo in question came from, but the suit narrows it down to an unknown convenience store in New York City. The suit alleges that the photo was taken without her permission.

She’s asking that the court order the sites in question to immediately remove her photo. The suit also demands compensatory damages of more than $10 million.

    She needs to bankrupt them and in the meantime, it might help if she put on clothes that didn’t show so much of her upper body.

  • Tim Jones says:

    I sure hope that Mrs. Hepp will win every penny and more!! This must be awful for her. The sites that have her picture should immediately remove her photo and any information related to her. This is a sad, very sad day in America when people are getting their pictures taken without any respect to ask for permission!!

  • William Conley says:

    So they just used her photo because she’s hot and older and she wants 10 million dollars for it? In regards to her saying the photo was taken without her permission she was looking right at the camera and smiling kinda odd. I mean they shouldn’t be able to use her photo against her will or without permission but 10 million dollars for them using a normal non sexual unedited photo?

    “the suit narrows it down to an unknown convenience store in New York City. The suit alleges that the photo was taken without her permission.”

    Take a better look at the photo of her in the convenience store. That was NOT taken by a surveillance camera. She is about 3 feet away from the person who took the photo, with her arms crossed and posed, her top revealing her cleavage and she is smiling both with her mouth and her eyes.

    She was POSING for the picture and she knows EXACTLY who took the photo.

    “She says in the lawsuit that she first learned her image was being used without her permission on the various sites when her co-workers and managers at Fox 29 alerted her to it.”

    And what are her co-workers doing cruising Reddit, XNXX, etc? Looking for her? Hmmmmm.

    With all that said, yes she IS a MILF and hot.
