Kellyanne Conway Accused Of Posting Topless Image Of Teenage Daughter On Twitter
Former White House adviser Kellyanne Conway has been accused of posting a topless photo of her teenage daughter Claudia Conway on Twitter.
Social media erupted Monday night after Conway's @KellyannePolls account allegedly shared a fleet - a post on Twitter's mobile platform slated to disappear after 24 hours - and featured a partially nude Claudia, who is 16 years old. The picture has since been deleted. But other Twitter users say they took screenshots of it.
The situation then made its way to TikTok, where Claudia often reports on what was happening in her family. Over the past year, the teen has shared videos showing her tumultuous relationship with her parents, Kellyanne Conway and vocal anti-Trump attorney George Conway.
After commentators wrote on Claudia's posts that Kellyanne Conway's account had shared a topless photo of her, the teenager made videos telling her followers, “I don't know if this is a joke or not, but I really did Fear "and asked," Is that real? "
In a video that has since been deleted, Claudia told fans: "I assume that when my mom took my phone, she took a picture of it that was on her phone. I think she accidentally posted it or someone did hacked her. But no one would ever have a photo like this. So Kellyanne, you're going to jail. "
Federal law "prohibits the production, distribution, reception, and possession of a picture of child pornography, and any violation of federal child pornography law is a serious crime" and "convicted criminals are subject to severe legal penalties".
A Twitter spokesperson told HuffPost, "Through technology and human review, we will proactively remove any images that violate Twitter rules." Kellyanne Conway could not be reached for comment and Claudia Conway representatives did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
Claudia urged fans in another, now deleted video, to report the photo if they see it. The teen also commented on her own TikTok videos in Morse code, expressing disbelief about the situation.
Um, can we please talk about the abusive mother Kellyanne Conway, who loses her 16 year old daughter's file in a fleet while Claudia fights for emancipation?

Claudia also took part in a TikTok Live with social media influencer Tana Mongeau, where she apparently argues with her parents about the alleged photo. In the live stream, Claudia is heard accusing her mother of posting the photo on her Twitter account.
Mongeau has also tried to make the hashtag #JusticeForClaudia a trend.
Kellyanne Conway quit her job in the Trump administration in August 2020 after several videos of Claudia talking about her relationship with her parents went viral.
Previously, the advisor had been accused of repeated violations of ethics laws and was named a "repeat offender" in 2019 by the Office of Special Counsel under the Hatch Act, which bans officials from using their roles for partisan purposes. The agency claimed that Conway's "actions undermine the main foundation of our democratic system - the rule of law".
