Uncle Sued Over Embarassing Facebook Photos

AwkwardFamilyPhotos.com

According to a recent ruling, you are more than welcome to embarrass your family members on Facebook. 

Aaron Olson of Minnesota sued his uncle, after he posted embarrassing childhood photos on the social networking site. The photos were of Olson, posed in front of a Christmas tree with captions making fun of him.

The uncle agreed to un-tag Olson, but refused to take the pictures down. That’s when Olson brought in the lawyers.

However one judge ruled the lawsuit had no merit. “To constitute harassment, words must have a substantial adverse effect on the safety, security, or privacy of another. Comments that are mean and disrespectful, coupled with innocuous family photos, do not affect a person’s safety, security, or privacy — and certainly not substantially so,” says Judge Natalie E. Hudson.

Sounds like the holidays are going to be a bit more awkward for that family.
