Earlier this week, we reported that four-year-old Pixie Curtis’ Instagram account had been targeted by a sick hoax with images of the little girl doctored in distressing sexual and pornographic pictures circulated among top Sydney fashion identities.
Pixie Curtis, who has been dubbed the ‘princess of Instagram’, is the daughter of Australian PR consultant, Roxy Jacenko. What started as a way for Roxy to thank brands who sent Pixie gifts as a baby, has turned into a lucrative business selling Pixies bows – super cute hair clips for young girls.
Roxy says that what happened to Pixie is sick. "In my eyes, it’s paedophilia," she told The Daily Telegraph.
When my eldest child was born in 2011, I actively tried to refrain from posting photos of him on social media. I posted one or two every now and then, but I really didn't want to plaster social media with his image.
My thinking at the time was that at some stage he would be old enough to develop his own online presence, and I wanted him to be able to choose which images of him were in circulation.
Four and a half years and another child later, I've relaxed my approach a fair bit. Scroll through my public Instagram account and there sure is plenty of my kids for you to see.
"I don't do photo shoots with them for publication in magazines and I get cranky if we are papped when we're out and about. I try and keep the pics of them that I do put on social media to a minimum. And even then, I aim to put pics where their faces are obscured."
I can conquer the world with one hand... As long as you're holding the other ? A photo posted by SOPHIE CACHIA (@theyoungmummy) on
