A photo of a 4-year-old with Hillary Clinton was used as a disgusting meme. Her mom fought back.

Jennifer Jones’s daughter, Sullivan, cherished the picture, now framed in her bedroom, showing a smiling Clinton crouching behind her with both hands on her little shoulders.

But more than a year later — the day after Clinton lost the election and as Jones was processing her own grief over the loss — their treasured photo was turned into something sinister. Someone had taken the photo, originally uploaded to the Clinton campaign Flickr page, and turned it into a meme that was then shared thousands of times across social media.

Bold white type across the top of the image read, “I AM FOR WOMEN’S RIGHTS!” Then halfway down, text covering the lower half of Sullivan’s body accused Clinton of accepting money and refugees from countries “that would mutilate this girl’s genitals, marry her to a Muslim pedophile, and stone her to death if she doesn’t wear a bedsheet.”

2. Don't you know

we are supposed to befriend them. I prefer laughing and mocking them. They are sick twister fucks that don't give a shit about anyone else. They actually think they will be exempt from trump policies, because they are deserving. They deserve something alright, they deserve every ounce of misery trump's presidency will inflict on them. I just wish the rest of us didn't have to go down with them.

3. It's pretty hard to befriend crazy people

and the ones that aren't crazy that I have befriended aren't going to change their minds until they see that he's screwing up badly. I just hope the screw ups come before he can do too much damage.

We really DO have to get on top of this. Seems like we're always a step behind trying to prove things are false instead of being the aggressive ones.

8. OH YES! Sorry, I didn't go to the link before(in a hurry then)..

Several days later, she posted about it on Pantsuit Nation, the Facebook group of more than 3 million that started as a secret pro-Clinton page and has morphed into a massive online community where people share stories and seek support. Jones asked if they could help her report the image one-by-one.

Soon messages poured into her inbox offering help. This person knew someone at Pinterest who could help; another had a contact at the Center for Missing and Exploited Children. Then she got a message from Shaun Kozolchyk, the San Francisco director of development for the Anti-Defamation League.

"But what happened next gives Jones reason to believe her fight had a wider cause. When she shared again on Pantsuit Nation what the ADL had been able to do, others started coming forward saying their child’s image had been used in a meme. They just didn’t think there was anything they could do about it."
