The infamous Swedish Instagram account that anonymously called for pictures of underage “sluts” is still being investigated. Following the rioting of girls who claimed to either recognize themselves — or in some cases their younger siblings — on the social media platform, authorities are pretty certain that they’ve sussed out who exactly hatched the slut-shaming idea.
The Local reports that prosecutors in Gothenburg — where the riots began last December — are hoping to formally charge two ladies aged 15 and 18 respectively. Authorities are aiming for “aggravated defamation” charges to be filed at the end of this month. But prosecutor Annika Boman tells the paper that they are still on the hunt for new information, some of which reveals that both young men and women were included in the slut-shaming account that included alleged and detailed “sexual activities” by said minors.
So far, 85 people have reportedly been interviewed in conjunction with the Instagram case:
Many of the comments, several of which used graphic and obscene language, are being investigated as possible slander.
Boman explained she must determine how many of those who reported possible defamation crimes will end up being included in the indictment, speculating that “not even half” will make the cut.
Still, looks like the rioting teen girls who flat out refused to be called Instagram “sluts” made their voices heard.
