It's in the DM. You probably don't want to look.

But 14 yr old Indonesian boy is "laying eggs"

Along with a blurred photo of one coming out of his bottom he's been named

AIBU to think this is akin to/actually showing an image of a child being abused and naming the victim?

Obviously he's being exploited or forced into putting them up his backside... and yet in true DM style there's a joke about if only he could lay bacon...

I know the DM is awful... but doesn't this cross over into sharing images of abuse and should be illegal?

That's grim sad

Jesus fucking christ. They truly are on a different planet. Totally agree OP.

Wrong on so many levels. Poor lad.

I wish there was something that you could do to get the message through... its not like you can report it to the police is it? Ugh just makes me so sick. If it was in the U.K would they have printed it? I doubt it

Cant a complaint to some sort of ombudsman be made? It is imo circulating child porn. If someone on my fb posted this they would be reported to the police, so surely just because its a company they cant be held unaccountable?

It might be worth making a complaint to the press regulatory body?

Birdsgottafly Thu 22-Feb-18 09:52:39

Its on other sources and the boy is in quarantine and the Government has got involved.

Birdsgottafly Thu 22-Feb-18 09:54:39

Pressed too soon.
The Father is said to be outraged by the claims it is a hoax.

LondonHereICome Thu 22-Feb-18 09:57:33

The father is not outraged his child is being made a spectacle of then?

Soubriquet Thu 22-Feb-18 09:57:46

Ey? This is just not possible. Only explanation is someone is putting the eggs up his bottom so that he can lay them

Very abusive

istoleatoycar Thu 22-Feb-18 09:59:06

Seems fairly clear that either father is exploiting child for monetary gain or does believe child but child is mentally unwell and it's a big cry for attention/help

I hope the government have got involved to safeguard the child?

The UK media shouldn't be sharing these images or naming the victim

If someone can direct me where/how to complain I will... just don't know how

splendide Thu 22-Feb-18 10:00:50

Yes complain to IPSO, this is awful.

What does TW stand for?|

gingergenius Thu 22-Feb-18 10:01:04

Yes to complaining - direct to dm???

istoleatoycar Thu 22-Feb-18 10:02:35

TW is trigger warning @splendide

Shadow666 Thu 22-Feb-18 10:03:00

I saw the headline in the DM, who said if only he could figure out how to make bacon... I thought it was a pretty tasteless remark even for the DM.

Married3Children Thu 22-Feb-18 10:04:02

Yep, complain to IPSO about the DM.
The more people are complaining bout the rubbish they are printing, the less they will be able to get away with it.

LondonHereICome Thu 22-Feb-18 10:04:07

It's all over the internet.... lots reporting it. I doubt complaining will do anything at all
Emails will probably be ignored or a standard reply sent out

Mummyoflittledragon Thu 22-Feb-18 10:04:10

Okaaaaay. And fairies and goblins are real. 🤪

Fitzsimmons Thu 22-Feb-18 10:05:33

IPSO seem quite limited in what they can and can't investigate. In particular it states on their website that they can't take complaints re:

"Concerns about taste and decency – these should be directed to the editor of the individual publication."

Stop Funding Hate has had some success regarding stopping companies advertising in the DM, basically hitting them in the pocket. Might be worth bringing this to their attention.

StickThatInYourPipe Thu 22-Feb-18 10:08:14

He isn’t even the first person to claim to be able to do this. There was a’ Indonesian man a while ago who said the same thing.

They weren’t picturing him in the act of laying the egg so why post a young boys?

NotASingleFuckToGive Thu 22-Feb-18 10:08:18

It is imo circulating child porn I hope you don't mind me saying, but it is child sexual abuse. There is no such thing as child porn.

istoleatoycar Thu 22-Feb-18 10:16:45

Trying IPSO but can't find a submit button?

After I put it in it has next complaint and the back button. Nothing else confused

I read the article and I was very surprised at the final sentence from the DM which basically turned the whole thing into a huge joke. Absolutely awful.
