Reddit shuts down r/jailbait

11 Oct, 2011

r/jailbait was infamous on the social news site for featuring sexualized images of underage girls, most of which were purportedly lifted from the girls’ Facebook pages. However, in a thread posted late on the Sunday (Oct 9) night, a user posted a revealing shot of a young girl’s buttocks with the title, “Repost Of An ex(She was 14 here)”. When the user revealed he also possessed nude photos of the girl, more than 30 other users asked him to send the photographs to them via personal message. Other users complained and contacted staff. By 8 p.m. today the page had been shut down with the message:

REDDIT: This subreddit has been shut down due to threatening the structural integrity of the greater reddit community.
