In the Spanish region of Extremadura, around two dozen mothers have reported a shocking misuse of artificial intelligence: the creation and circulation of ultra-realistic nude images of their teenage daughters. The disturbing case came to light when Miriam Al Adib, a gynecologist and mother, shared a video on Instagram explaining the situation. The images, described as incredibly realistic, have not only gone viral among schoolboys but may also have been uploaded to adult websites.
Rapid Response and Investigation
Upon discovering the distressing images, the affected mothers quickly organized, forming a WhatsApp group to coordinate their response. The local police in Almendralejo, where five secondary schools have reported such incidents, have initiated an investigation. Several alleged authors of the photographic montages have already been identified, and the case has been handed over to the Juvenile Prosecutor's Office. The culprits could potentially face charges including creating child pornography, distributing the images, and extortion, leading to varying degrees of punishment.
Community Support and Ongoing Developments
Miriam Al Adib's revelation on Instagram garnered massive support, with the community rallying behind the affected mothers and urging them to continue reporting. Al Adib emphasized the importance of speaking out, stating, “The feeling that women do not remain silent is a fact. We are no longer ashamed. We are victims, and now we can speak because society supports us.” The investigation remains open, and the application allegedly used to create the images, Clothoff, is under scrutiny for promoting its services with the slogan: “Undress anybody with our free service!”
