The curious case of Amber Cole, the 14-year-old girl who was videotaped performing oral sex on her ex-boyfriend, has created a discussion around both cyber bullying and child pornography.
We asked our GlobalGrind audience last week “Would you watch the Amber Cole Video?” and at least 75 percent said they would in fact watch the controversial clip.
6,669 voters said they would watch the video, while 2,237 people said they wouldn’t.
The poll is anonymous, but we have to ask, how can 75 percent of our audience want to watch such a video?
STORY: Who Is Amber Cole?
Amber Cole’s father spoke out to a Baltimore radio station and said:
“She was forced to do this, she was bullied, harassed into doing this. The one that videotaped it, I hope he’s incarcerated. I’m hoping he gets some serious time out of this. It hurts a lot of people– not just her, not just her reputation– but also her family.”
Since the controversial video hit the internet, Amber has changed schools, two boys implicated in the filming have been arrested and the investigation is on-going.
