News Anchor Sues Facebook After Her Photo Was Used In Ads

To be clear, her picture was used in ads for dating sites and boner pills. While I think she has a right to be pissed, I don't think she has a chance of winning this. 

A Philadelphia news anchor has sued Facebook, Reddit, and other web platforms after a convenience store photo started showing up in dating and erectile dysfunction ads. Karen Hepp, who works for Fox 29 News, filed the suit earlier this week. She alleges that the sites violated her right of publicity and damaged her reputation with “abhorrent and disgusting” uses of the picture.
