Amber Heard takes it to Capitol Hill to support legislation making revenge porn a federal crime



Amber Heard left the Cannes Film Festival to pay a visit to Washington, DC on Wednesday.

The actress is supporting the SHIELD Act, a reintroduction of a legislation that would make sharing sexual images of a person without their consent a federal crime. This would make posting and distributing 'revenge porn' punishable by a fine, up to five years in prison, or both.

“Nonconsensual porn is one of the worst violations of privacy and it doesn’t discriminate, instead it disproportionately affects women around the world with devastating consequences. Intimate content released into the internet is virtually impossible to remove, further subjecting victims to harassment and judgment from strangers and acquaintances alike.”

Heard had her own private photos and videos leaked in 2014 by a hacker who targeted multiple high-profile stars including Jennifer Lawrence, Miley Cyrus, Kate Upton, and Kirsten Dunst. “I continue to be harassed, stalked and humiliated by the theft of those images. I can tell you firsthand that the acts of nonconsensual porn are humiliating and degrading.”
