Disturbing viral Facebook post shows man sexually abusing child

This is an archived article and the information in the article may be outdated. Please look at the time stamp on the story to see when it was last updated.

Facebook users have been contacting the PIX11 news desk to complain about a disturbing image that has been popping up on their walls.  The disgusting screen grab was apparently taken from a child porn video depicting sex between a man and a young girl.

The video went viral overnight and was shared more than 32,000 times and liked over 5,000 before Facebook finally pulled it.

In a statement, Facebook responded saying:

“Nothing is more important to Facebook than the safety of the people that use our site, and this material has no place on Facebook.

“We have zero tolerance for child pornography being uploaded onto Facebook and are extremely aggressive in preventing and removing child exploitive content.

“We are pleased that this material was reported to us quickly enabling its swift removal.”

“Swift” may be a subjective statement, but the breach raises questions about how such an explicit video could pass Facebook’s detection system that has been so good at weeding out images such as these.

Thursday evening Facebook messages and phone calls flooded into the PIX11 news desk.

One viewer wrote, “Dear pix11 news—-there are no words to describe how i feel at this moment watching this video.  You have warn to people and protect the children.  See what you can do.”

Another viewer says “My fiance is a police officer and and I showed it to him and it brought him to tears….do something now!”

PIX11 contacted the FBI, police and Facebook about the video.

    Thank you Pix 11 News for listening to your viewers concerns about this video being circulated on Facebook. I also sent an email about my concerns regarding this video. It is very disturbing that a monster could do something so horrific to a child. I pray that they catch the monster & bring justice to that child.

    Facebook did not delete it, it just showed up on my wall and I reported it I think I’m going to be sick and also delete my Facebook for good I’m angry and so sad. I’m praying for that young girl

    It may be pulled but it still shows up every time someone makes a comment. So for Atleast every one person that comments, the video spreads about 200 times per person. It shouldn’t have ever been able to get that far.

    Please understand that this is not “sex between a man and a young girl!” There is no possibility that a minor can consent to such a thing. This child was violated and abused…period. I pray that this “man” is found and given his just due.

    As I child I was molested by my father. That sick video had me in years all day. My prayers go out to that little girl. In my opinion this article should be corrected. It was not a video of a man and a young girl having sex. It was a video of a sick twisted man raping a child, a baby!! I hope he is caught and tortured for the rest of his life because death would be too easy. I hope you guys keep the public updated on this story. It’s very disturbing to know this person may still be out on the street, or worse still abusing that innocent child.
