A Teacher’s Lesson On Internet Safety Turns Into A Photoshop Battle

Never trust the Internet

In the era of social media, it’s important to be careful about what you post online. People have lost jobs, suffered worldwide humiliation, and become victims of crime all over a Facebook or Twitter post. So a teacher decided to show his students just how quickly an image can spread online by posting a photo to social media with a placard asking strangers to share it along with their location.

The teacher’s post was initially a success, but it eventually fell into the hands of Reddit user Prawnjoe who submitted it for an epic Photoshop battle. Although most of the entries in the battle are harmless and funny, more than a few received an R-rated makeover. Ultimately, although the teacher never intended for his photo to be mocked online, the battle may have created another teachable moment for his class. Not only can your pictures spread quickly online, but once they’re on the Internet, they can be used against you as well.

In August, the Recording Academy hired their first female CEO, Deborah Dugan. Ten days before the Grammys, Dugan was placed on administrative leave for misconduct allegations after a female employee said Dugan was "abusive" and created a "toxic and intolerable" work environment. However, Dugan says she was actually removed from her position for complaining to human resources about sexual harassment, pay disparities, and conflicts of interest in the award show's nomination process.

Just five days before the Grammys, Dugan filed a complaint with the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, and her claims are many. Dugan says she was paid less than former CEO Neil Portnow. In 2018, Portnow received criticism for saying women need to "step up" when only two female acts won Grammys. Portnow decided to not renew his contract shortly after. Dugan says she was also asked to hire Portnow as a consultant for $750,000 a year, which she refused to do.
