Blac Chyna made headlines Monday after a sex tape featuring her and another man surfaced on the net.
Chyna’s attorneys have since called for legal action following the tape’s leak. Lisa Bloom, infamous celebrity lawyer, referred to the tape as “revenge porn,” which she called a “crime” and “a form of domestic abuse.”
Bloom also regarded the video as a “way to try to slut shame women for being sexual.”
Revenge porn — posting explicit images without the consent of everyone in those images — is a crime, a civil wrong, and a form of domestic abuse.
It's also a way to try to slut shame women for being sexual.
Girls have killed themselves over revenge porn.
It's not a joke.

Walter Mosley, another member of Blac Chyna’s legal team, took to IG to request people around social media to stop sharing the footage.
“…Men we need to do better,” Mosley wrote. “We need to tell each other to do better. We need to stop sharing these videos with each other in the club, at the barbershop or (and especially) online. It is a morally corrupt action, which is (at least in California) criminal. Maybe it is time to set an example.”
We have to change this culture of abuse and assault against women. Today’s post saddens me deeply as it is an attack not only against my client but my friend. Why do we think it’s acceptable to sell, or publish, or seek revenge, or blackmail women in this way and without their consent? It’s not. Men … we have to do better. I’m tired of telling my clients to not make videos because the men will put them out later. It’s like I’m telling them not to wear short skirts because you’re going to entice a man to rape you. #smh And like most rapes, these betrayals often come from those most close to us. So today I’m saying, men we need to do better. We need to tell each other to do better. We need to stop sharing these videos with each other in the club, at the barbershop or (and especially) online. It is a morally corrupt action, which is (at least in California) criminal. Maybe it is time to set an example. #blacchyna
Distributing revenge porn has been an offense in California since 2013.
