This cheerleader mom just raised the rival game by using deepfakes to make the other squad look like naked party animals. Points for creativity? This deepfake stuff trouble is only the beginning...
A Pennsylvania mom has been arrested for allegedly creating libelous fake photos of girls on her daughter's cheerleading team.
Raffaela Spone, 50, who hails from the town of Chalfront, was slapped with harassment and cyber harassment charges over the saga late last week.
According to The Philadelphia Inquirer, Spone is accused of creating 'deepfake' photos and videos showing three members of the Victory Vipers cheer squad 'naked, drinking and smoking'.
The newspaper reports that the three girls had fallen out with Spone's daughter and she wanted them booted off the team. ...
Spone allegedly created the deepfakes by 'mapping the victims' social media photos onto other images' in a bid to make them look real.
The mom is then accused of anonymously sending the graphic pictures and videos to the coaches of the cheerleading team.
She also purportedly sent the doctored images directly to the teenage girls, along with message to one of them urging her to 'kill herself'. ...
Detectives traced four phone numbers that had sent the deepfake images and tied them all to a telemarketing website.
They then traced data from that website to an IP address at Spone’s house.
Police say a subsequent search of Spone's phone uncovered the text messages and deepfake images that she had sent to the three victims and the team's coaches.
