Embarrassing for Who?

From Global Voices...

All over the Singapore blogosphere are commentaries on an unfortunate high school cheerleader, nicknamed “Tammy NYP,” whose cellphone was allegedly stolen by a jealous classmate and whose sex video recorded on that phone is now spreading across the Internet. A post by Book of Aletheia on the topic now has over 150 comments. Tinker, Tailor has a few words on the scorn heaped on the poor girl but not on her male partner. Xialanxue has been following the story, communicating with the victim, trying to persuade a blogger to remove pictures posted from the video, and reflecting on the ethics of the traditional media’s reporting on a deeply embarrassing story.

since the girl does not feel embarrassed herself, why shouldnt media use it to make some sales?

this world lost the idea of shame long ago; no publicity is bad publicity

so why is she approaching bloggers and asking them to remove her picture from their blog?

She wasnt the one asking bloggers to remove the photos.

Her concerned friends were the ones.... and also one blogger who thinks she is the boss around.
