Denyque Lashes Out – Demands That Blog Be Shut Down And Operators Jailed

Female singer Denyque has
come out in defence of females, who like herself, have had their nude
pictures and videos posted on a new social blog without their consent.

The
now infamous blog has very explicit pictures of mostly women and a few
men. In some instances, there are even videos of persons involved in
various sexual acts.

Since becoming public over a week ago, the matter has been
reported to the Organised Crime Investigation Division, who say they are
investigating the matter.

But while they wait for an arrest to be made and for the
matter to be taken to the court, Denyque says she will be the voice of
the women who have had their privacy violated.

In a statement sent to THE STAR, Denyque explained that
the perpetrators obtained her personal photos by hacking into her
computer and phone. However, she said she decided to release a statement
after a nude picture with her surfaced on the blog on Monday night.

She said the photo was taken sometime in 2009 and “was
never sent or otherwise distributed to anyone. 

They have remained my
private property. Let me be clear that these photographs were also taken
when I was in a committed relationship and that both myself and my
partner, at the time, remain equally puzzled and disappointed at the
surfacing of these photographs.” 

Last Friday, Denyque said her management team contacted the
operators of the blog to remove the photos or face legal consequences.
Instead, the persons demanded money. 

“My manager emailed them again and asked them to remove the
photos, to which they responded and a male called from an unknown number
with a demand for $50,000 to remove these photographs.

I have refused
to comply. There is simply no way I will stand for blackmail and
extortion. Absolutely none, and I have since reported the matter to the
Jamaica Constabulary Force,” she said. 

She continued: “What about the other ladies on the blog? How do
they begin to reassemble their lives after these hackers and scammers
wreak havoc? What happens when this wretched person decides that $50,000
is no longer enough money? What happens when the blog continues to post
these illegally obtained photos and continues to destroy people’s
lives? I will not stand for that. I will not support it.”

Based on these sentiments, the female artiste says she is going to be the voice of those who have been affected. 

“I am prepared to be the voice of all the innocent women who are
being exploited. I refuse to sit back and be silent! It is clear that
the operators of this blog harbour a great hatred for women and the idea
of privacy that all consenting adults are entitled to. It needs to be
shut down and the operators jailed,”
she said. 

“I have accepted that as a person in the public eye, I am held to
a higher standard of judgement, but I do not accept that I am not
allowed the same privacy and space. 

I take this opportunity to extend my
heartfelt gratitude to all the persons who have offered me their
support, compassion, love and well wishes. I feel truly honoured and
blessed.

Not with standing, I will continue to be an advocate in defense
of the innocent women who have suffered at the hands of this cruel act.”
