Overview

Jada's Sexual Assault Case refers to the recorded sexual assault of a 16-year-old Texas resident in June 2014. After footage of the assault began circulating via social media, the disturbing photo fad "#jadapose" was launched in which participants mimicked pictures of the victim's unconscious body.

Background

On July 8th, 2014, a 16-year-old identifying herself as Jada came forward to the Houston news station KHOU[4] after discovering images of herself naked and unconscious being shared by her peers via social media. Jada claimed the attack occurred at a party she attended one month prior and that she believed she had been drugged as she had no recollection of the events.

I'm not an advocate hitting your kids, but if I catch any child doing this jadapose shit, I'm slapping them across the head.

We love to joke about SJWs for a lot of the laughable things they do, but when it comes to shit like this, I'm personally glad they're around.
