Angie Varona: ABC's Nightline Decides It's a Good Idea to Broadcast Sexy Pictures of a 14-Year-Old

Categories: Media Watch

Remember Miami-teen Angie Varona? She was the girl who unwittingly became an internet sex symbol at the age of 14 after her Photobucket account was hacked and her scantily clad, though not explicit, photos made the rounds on some of the seedier parts of the internet.

Well, ABC News' Nightline interviewed her this week. They added nothing new to the story, aside from an interview with Varona and her parents, but they decided it would be a good idea to broadcast images of Varona's body, including a few taken while she was a child wearing little more than a thong, along with the report.

Here's the clip, and yes, notice that ABC News even uses one of the pictures as the placeholder image:

The report starts out innocently enough. Nightline shows carefully cropped photos of Angie's face and images of her Google image search result page featuring some of the less shocking photos (a similar tactic we took to illustrate the story when we wrote about it). Then things get graphic.

"So here they are, a few photographs of a 14-year-old girlfriend in bra and panties taken for her first boyfriend," says anchor Terry Moran.

Taken out of context it would sound creepy. Even in context it's still creepy. Nightline then shows dozens of Varona's more scandalous photos during the rest of the package, including photos of her unblurred, barely covered breasts and pictures of her wearing just a thong. All of these pictures were taken when she was a child, mind you.

These pictures are then inter-cut with video of Varona crying while being interviewed about how she wishes no one had ever seen these pictures. Moran reports on how Angie has received threats, and men have written rape fantasies about the teen. Did it occur to anyone that broadcasting these on one the most watched networks in America could only encourage more of that?

Way to be a creep, Terry Moran.

Sorry girls, but there is no filter to keep the ugly, money challenged, no car having guys from looking at your body when your wearing what amounts to postage stamps and floss. Just because you dress like that for 'prince charming' doesnt mean thats the only one who see's it. You push the cleavage out to there and paint your jeans on, everyone is going to notice. Its a fact of life.

Know what else is a fact of life? Its a sick world in which we live in, and has been for far longer than little miss T&A has been alive. So either mommy and daddy failed you, by not explaining this to you when you first went out and got a bra, let alone the Victoria Secrets push up you seem to love so much, or you actually do like the attention that you get from dressing as you do. Again, though, you have to realize that its not just the rich hottie with the bangin car thats going to notice.

Then there is the little fact that you have had 6, thats right SIX, facebook accounts that you claim were hacked, with photo's which are equally immodest, after the first incident. What, you didnt learn from the first time? "Fxxx me once, shame on you, Fxxx me 6 times............", you get the point.  Spare me the crocodile tears.

This, of course, does not condone anyones threats of rape or any kind of sexual assault, but as I said in paragraph two, it is a sick world, and there are some seriously sick people in it. Dont be surprised that some people treat you like a 'ho', when you dress like one.

As to the question of "what if it was your daughter". Simple, she wouldnt be dressing like a Hooters Waitress, least not at 14 years old, plain and simple. Not saying I'd force her to wear a potato sack, but a little modesty does go a long way, specially if she wants to be a lawyer.

There is no reason to think she has breast implants, other than the fact that some idiot here just decided to throw that out! They don't look fake BTW! Once you ever get to see some you can tell the difference.

And where is the proof that her account was "hacked"?  Sounds like BS to me!

To those actually believing her "i regret i did this" - there are over 400 pictures out there, spanning from when she was 12 (those were found later) to a few photos from this month. The original batch was about 50-100 pictures, and she's been busy making more ever since.

OK... so the (step?)father is a gay-looking pimp daddy, Mom is a stereotypical "broad", and now the coy "family values" lamestream media (MSM) is "shocked, shocked I tell you" that the Kar-trash-ian wannabe daughter is on the porn/stripper/escort/adult-entertainer career path.  Stop, yer herniatin' my credulity over here in Pompano. ;')

a) Is there ANY evidence that her (weak) password on P-bucket was actually hacked?  Occam's Razor says 14-yr-old BF sent it around to his high school buds for bragging rights... and what guy would NOT?  Day-um, I didn't get my grubbies on anyone in her league 'til sophomore year in COLLEGE.

b) Ozzie and Harriet seem to have no problem funding an endless collection of cams and smartphones for their "innocent" daughter.  OTOH, it could well be that not all the diff phones are hers, thus exponentially increasing chances of "leaked" photos.

c) Said sleaze parents are "unaware" daughter has denim porn-shorts and other fetish clothing from local stripper-wear boutique.  Like this spoiled princess does her own laundry, NOT.

d) If daughter DOES have breast augmentation, there are CRIMINAL charges hovering over both parents AND the surgeon(s) involved.  (OTOH, certain birth control pills can cause BALLOONing blouse bunnies.)

Good on NewTimes for calling the MSM on their duplicity.

ABC Nightline - money-hungry desperate icon-wannabes of bad taste, no class, and even less social responsibility. Nice going ABC you are right up there in the pedophilia ratings. Why not just endorse a half dozen serial rapist/killers of young girls?

Using that logic, isn't writing this article encouraging more rape fantasies?

@☠ (NOT) Lexi Belle ☠ after careful and long study LOL i have concluded that they MAY be real and she likes to wear push up bras, alot

@☠ (NOT) Lexi Belle ☠ i dont know they look pretty fake to me like too big at the tops and middle but i have no proof and either do you.  they can do really convincing boob jobs nowadays especially if you have the money.

and speaking of if you have the money, thats how you get them at 14, you pay alot, lie about age, fly to another country, where the dr. "decides" that your daughter has reached full growth, or whatever whatever all it takes is alot of money everyone knows that.


maybe its just because she's young and her boobs are very perky and shes wearing push-ups or something but i wont accept that until i have proof they are not fake.  regardless she is sure very proud of them kind of like she just had them done.

i have been with many girls like this when i was in HS and thier boobs never looked that "up".  i would bet her and especially her family are guarding this secret with their lives.

i agree with you about your other points tho.

It seems like she is at least a little bit bothered by it.

This story isn't mainly about the young lady, but the lack of tact shown by the Nightline program.

The video posted in this article isn't there to arouse, its there to show the ONLY example of what the author is writing about. Nightline on the other hand could have blurred the images? Used different non provocative ones? Not used them at all? I don't know. It's kind of strange to see her explain how she was tormented by her racy images being shown to millions of people on the internet, and then have ABC put those very same uncensored images on national television.

The ones that are the most fucked in this whole thing are the parents who consented to all of this. If you want something to go away you don't keep digging it back up.

Where are you coming up with this crap? Do you have some evidence of this? There is no indication those are implants! They look nothing like a boob job genius! The stupid people like this guy just ruin the internet!

They don't perform breast implants on 14 year olds Einstein! Their breasts are still growing!! Ask a grown up for clarification, especially before you make up total nonsense and attempt to start stupid rumors!

@☠ (NOT) Lexi Belle ☠ you are a fucking idiot, all it takes is money.  i dont know for sure her boobs are fake but i would say it is very likely by the way they look.  i think you are the one who needs to provide proof they are not fake
