Troll created fake porn account to impersonate me and followed all my male friends and family – including my dad

A SICK troll created a fake porn account impersonating a women's rights activist.

The anonymous social media user edited explicit images of Jamie Klingler, 43, then followed all of her friends and family – including her dad.


Jamie, who co-founded the Reclaim These Streets campaign, said she was was left "humiliated" by the ordeal.

"Having to call my father and say that's not my vagina is one of the top ten more embarrassing conversations I've ever had," she said.

Jamie, who is taking legal action against the Metropolitan Police after officers cancelled a vigil for murdered marketing exec Sarah Everard, also told MyLondon: "It was one of the worst nights I’ve ever had.

"It felt violent and it felt like abuse.

"The reason why this is so painful is because they did it with sex and because I'm a woman."

Relatives told Jamie on Tuesday night that an Instagram account with a similar username to Klingler's was sharing graphic photos.

This included a picture of another woman's vagina and a link to a fake FanCentro account – a subscription platform commonly used to sell sexual content.

The post promised "naughty content" and something "a little more personal for the real supporters".

While these were not pictures of her, they were posted alongside ones taken from her actual profile so appeared potentially legitimate.

She immediately reported the account, but it took 10 hours for bosses to take it down.

Jamie has since said the experience has made her sympathetic towards revenge porn victims and is urging social media giants to take reports of online abuse towards women much more seriously.

Because the photos were fake, Jamie's experience does not count as revenge porn and is being treated as fraud by police.

Jamie, who describes herself as being "mouthy and aggressive about the fact violence against women needs to stop", wrote on Twitter: "Laws need to catch up in terms of revenge porn and fraudulent behaviour which is bedded in misogyny."

Jamie has now launched a petition to get Instagram to "immediately disable reported accounts and then have a moderator investigate the facts rather than relying on volume of reporting in order to suspend accounts".

It forms part of her Reclaim These Streets campaigning, which last year included organising an event in Clapham, south London, to commemorate Everard, who was killed by a serving Met Police officer.

Cops cancelled the vigil due to Covid, but a version of the gathering went ahead anyway.

Members of the group claim police breached their rights to freedom of speech and assembly and acted violently towards the crowds.
