Texas Woman Sues Facebook Over Revenge Porn Profile

Texas Woman Sues Facebook Over Revenge Porn Profile

Texas woman suing Facebook over fake profile allegedly set up in her name.
"I've been exposed..violated..."

Meryem Ali asked us not to show her face.

She's a private person, now involved in a very public lawsuit. Suing facebook for millions but says she wants justice, not money.

"There is no reason this should have happened to me or should've happened to anyone else..."

Ali alleges that an ex-friend set up a fake Facebook page under her name.Using pictures of her face superposed onto pornographic images.

He then sent links to ali's family and friends.

"He would lure them in, he would add them and then show them these nasty images."

For months, Ali says she begged Facebook to remove the fake page but claims the social media giant ignored her requests.

She says Facebook only took it down after Houston Police subpoenaed the company to find out who created the offensive profile.

"I just want to know why they have live people behind a telephone if you want to advertise with them, but if you want to get help for an imposter page, there's no one to help you, you have to go law enforcement. That doesn't seem right to me."

Ali is suing Facebook for $123-million, that's ten cents for each of the site's 1.23 billion members.

She hopes the lawsuit protects other users and teaches Facebook a lesson.

"Regardless of what happens, my name will be forever linked to a revenge porn Facebook lawsuit."

Win or lose. The experience will haunt her for life.
