Donald Trump Ally Kellyanne Conway Posted Topless Pictures of Her Own Daughter to Social Media; Company Investigating
Former Trump adviser Kellyanne Conway reportedly posted a topless picture of her 16-year-old daughter on Twitter earlier this week.
According to a Twitter rep, the social media giant is investigating the matter. The spokesperson said, “Through technology and human review, we’ll proactively remove any images that violate the Twitter Rules.”
According to several users who captured screenshots, Conway posted the picture of her topless 16-year-old daughter to Twitter’s new Fleets feature, which is similar to the “stories” feature on Instagram and Snapchat because it deletes the post after 24 hours. Although the Fleet was removed, many users were able to grab a screenshot before it was taken down.
Claudia Conway confirmed that the picture was authentic through videos she posted on TikTok, and although those have been deleted as well, several users reposted copies of them. The videos feature the teenage girl, visibly upset, saying the following, “I’m assuming my mom took a picture of it to use against me one day and then somebody hacked her or something. I’m literally at a loss for words. If you see it, report it.”
In one of the videos, Claudia said, “nobody would ever have any photo like that, ever. So, Kellyanne, you’re going to fucking jail.”
This isn’t the first controversial exchange between the mother and daughter. Just last week, Claudia posted accusations via TikTok videos that claimed her mother was being physically and verbally abusive.
Kellyanne Conway left the White House late last summer to, by her claims, “focus on her family” and at that same time Claudia reported that the alleged “trauma and abuse” was leading her to seek emancipation from her parents.
Kellyanne Conway was cited by the U.S. Office of Special Counsel for repeated violations of the Hatch Act, which was designed to stop government officials from using their position to advocate for or against political candidates. The OSC’s report actually called for the firing of Conway, saying that she had, multiple times, “disparag[ed] Democratic presidential candidates while speaking in her official capacity during television interviews and on social media.”
Since the Conway incident on Twitter, Claudia Conway has since said that she and her mother will both be “taking a break from social media” to work on their relationship.
Claudia said, “I know that my mom would never, ever post anything to hurt me like that intentionally, and I do believe she was hacked.”
Her father, conservative lawyer George Conway, also tweeted a link to her account and added, “Our daughter Claudia asked me to tweet this statement for her.”
