Karena Bennet, an excited new mother, snapped a photograph with her newborn and husband on the day of the baby’s birth. A few days later, her photo was used in the local newspaper. Her son was the first baby born in 2015. However, a year later, Bennet began to see her photo popping up here and there. The picture was stolen from a newspaper article featuring Bennet’s son. Someone took the image and made up a new story to go along with it. She realized this when a coworker showed her the photo with a horrific headline: “Detroit Woman Gives Birth To Her 14th Child From 14 Different Fathers.” The headline was completely untrue, but its salacious title easily made the hoax go viral.

At first, Bennet thought it was a funny joke and tried to take it in stride. “I started getting more and more notifications on my Facebook,” the mom told ABC News. Bennet is telling her story in hopes that others will take precaution when sharing photos online. 6.2439 KG NCA Sexting in Schools WEB 1.
