4chan confirmed for literal Shit
this is terrifying please take caution
if someone does this to you DO NOT SAY ANYTHING TO THEM. dont post about, dont say anything that would hint to the fact that you know about it.
write down the post url, the blog url, the photo link, and any other information you have.
then take it directly to the police.
they can get arrested for defemation/slander, harassment, sexual harassment, and even pedophilia if youre a minor.
if they know you know theyll likely delete it before anything can be done.
someone did this to me when i was 14, by a 43 year old man from 4chan, and he edited it so i appeared to be nude and performing oral sex, and he was arrested for it.
once one of them gets arrested/in legal trouble theyll all stop.

Note to stars of shows with popular fandoms: This never ends well.
Ironically, fans had seen Sterek as a welcome change from the usual dismissal that slash fans usually get from their creative teams. Sterek is something of a historical first in a lot of ways, purely because Teen Wolf creator Jeff Davis was so welcoming and supportive of the idea. Creators have a long history of viewing slash fans as weird, obsessive, creepy, or crazy. Davis saw them as passionate, creative, and loyal. With his blessing, the show embraced Sterek in numerous ways. O’Brien and Hoechlin filmed promos for the Teen Choice Awards together; MTV’s unprecedented Teen Wolf fanfic contest welcomed Sterek and other slash pairings. And in turn, the Sterek fandom rallied around Davis and the show, creating a “campaign” to show love for them
Still, it’s never easy for us to hear that someone that fans love and respect thinks their pastime is weird. Posey’s language is the kind that has long been used to keep fans, particularly female, slash-loving, fanfic-writing fans, ever on the outskirts of mainstream culture. To quote darain39: “can we pls shut down the biggest ship in our fandom if we have to with words other than “TWISTED AND BIZARRE”???”
