I felt like my anonymity was taken away almost immediately because so many people were aware of the video and I had just suffered in Silence in fear that it would surface for so long that when it finally did I thought I don't just want to take a position for myself, but I want to do it for other women and men because it's a crime abounds and people don't realize the effect it has on people and they secretly filmed you. It was not you. It was consensual sex, but the filming itself was not something you were aware of.
You were angry? I mean, I was very, very upset at the time, but I also had the belief at the time that it wouldn't go any further than the two of us. private and that was my hope. I never for one second believed that it would get to the scale that it did because you were in a relationship in the past yes, but not at that time not at that time but we had a lot of history and I, there was a level of trust there. I trusted him, yeah, um, when did you first realize that he was actually okay? a screenshot of the video and that was from someone in america so that's when the world fell under my feet and i knew i had gone global and then i reached out to my followers because i was sick of living with this and not knowing where was i coming from say if anyone saw any kind of video i didn't describe the nature of it could you please send some evidence to an email address which at the time was my mother's because she was my manager and within that we had about a hundred different similar videos from different kinds of platforms being sent across multiple platforms across the internet and it was like this and then as soon as I did I knew I was looking for some kind of evidence it just spread like wildfire , George.
I mean listen to you now. men and I think a lot of women around here, I'm sure they'll be very supportive of what you're doing, but there must have been a time when you must have felt so hurt and humiliated, how did you get past that feeling? people would just shut down and never want to see anyone again and just hide in a room or something, but you're here on National Television talking about it, what exactly was that tipping point? I mean, it's actually been two years since the day it happened, and to be honest, I really hid in a room for a long time, everywhere I went, people were talking about it, and I felt humiliated, ashamed, and I felt very used that you could love and trust someone and know in that moment that you thought it was a moment of love, it was really a moment of making money for them and I think it took me a long time to get to this point but and just to explain , do you know what was the legal framework under which he pursued this what was the crime itself for which there were charges against him, it was
voyeurismand two counts of disclosure of private sexual images, yes, and it's sad to say, but I think that they will be adolescents who have experienced what you know.
WhatsApp videos about humiliation and that kind of thing. What is your advice to families, parents, young women, and indeed, as you were telling me, young men who might think this is normal and funny? I just want to say that this crime is too much. more Rife than you can imagine. I get so many messages from people looking for help but it's not something they talk about openings they're trying to hide the scenarios and what I want to tell men is that it's very clear guys it's not a
goodthing you're going to be embarrassed publicly unacceptable and could change someone's life to the point of committing suicide sharing these images is really life changing and for women it's just not worth the risk well you know this is the sole responsibility of men actually It was generally men, actually, men who will know other men do this, watch the video, yeah, and something we don't know who we're looking at and you. watch these videos like oh gosh look someone might share something in a pub all men have a responsibility to be better be more responsible and respect women respect their rights as human beings and this idea of self gratification comes before respect for others people is disgusting actually, yeah, you know, and I had a lot of friends call me and say, you know, men, they sent me this video of you and I said, Georgia, there's no way I'm me.
I'm looking at that and you shouldn't share it and that's what the people, the audience, your bravery means that someone is now guilty of a crime and that's now public knowledge and you've proven beyond a shadow of a doubt that this is something everyone should oppose it and that online security bill that I know you care about will make it even clearer that crimes of this nature should not be tolerated. Thank you very much, you know that you have used your public platform to Great Use and I hope it is some comfort to you after all the pain you have been through.
Thank you so much.
