Woman sues Facebook over pornographic photoshopped photos

A Houston woman is suing Facebook to the tune of $123,000,000 over pornographic photoshopped pictures. David Altenbern says Meryam Ali's ex took photos of her, and then photoshopped her head on the bodies of lewdly posed nude women. Altenbern says,"It affected her. A guy smiles at her, she worries about if a guy thinks she's 'that girl' or a woman sees her in public and thinks she's 'that girl', but she's not that girl."  He says the photos stayed up from December through April, despite repeated requests from Ali and her friends to take them down. The $123,000,000 suit translates into a dime for every Facebook user. Alternbern says the social media giant can afford to pay up.
