Jack Weppler is fast becoming a major Internet star thanks to Google, MemeGenerator and his ex-girlfriend. Apparently, Jack broke it off with the wrong girl because her form of revenge has turned WepplerÂ’s life into Â“hell.Â”
His unnamed ex-girlfriend uploaded several copies of JackÂ’s photo onto MemeGenerator and thus anyone who visits the site can put in any caption they wish to the photo. Now, WepplerÂ’s photo has gone viral via GoogleÂ’s search results and via its cache page.
Making a plea on her sonÂ’s behalf, JackÂ’s mother recently wrote: Â“My minor son's ex-girlfriend took a copyrighted picture of him (we own copyright) and uploaded it more than 60 times to a website. On each image she wrote slanderous, defamatory and pornographic captions. The webmaster of the site states he removed the images 6 weeks ago, but Google Search still shows all the images. My son is so stressed out and embarrassed and we've done everything we can to get images off of Google including URL removal tool, a letter to Google Legal with all the URLs because of copyright infringement, and nothing has worked!Â”
Unfortunately, it looks like once your photo is on the Internet, thereÂ’s no taking it back. Hopefully, Jack Weppler will be able to turn this into a positive thing. How will he do that? Who knows, if you have any advice, sound off below.
ItÂ’s hard to say whether or not she was the one to put in all of those offensive captions but she was the one who uploaded the photo. Do you think JackÂ’s ex-girlfriend crossed the line when she uploaded his photo?
