It’s another dumb crime that has something to do with Facebook.
Eric Olson of Minneapolis sued his own uncle for tagging him with an embarrassing picture.
The hilarious story started when Randall LaBrie, the uncle, posted Olson’s pictures when he was a child. Under one of the pictures he added comments that can be considered as rude for people in general.
Olson decided that what his uncle did was unacceptable. He sued his uncle, but unfortunately the court has another opinion. His case was lost. When he brought the case to the Court of Appeals, he also failed to put his uncle in jail or whatever he wanted to do on his uncle.
The state Court of Appeals decided that the comments do not count as harassment. They were only “mean and disrespectful.” The family pictures were described as innocuous and “do not affect a person’s safety, security, or privacy.”
Well, people who tag their friends on Facebook with some embarrassing pictures are countless. Most of them take him as a way to celebrate the happy day. With the recent “family drama” as described by Christopher Dazig at the ABL blog, you have to be very careful when you want to tag your Facebook friends with an embarrassing picture, especially when are about to tag your nephew.
