RIVERTON, Utah (KUTV) – It’s something most families do without even thinking about it.

Brittany Champagne, like most mothers, is proud of her children and love to post family photos on Instagram.

However, she said she made a shocking discovery when on the site one day.

She came across her 8-year-old daughter’s picture on somebody else’s profile.

“I clicked on there and I found a girl claiming to be 11-years-old as my daughter, and she’s a bisexual cheerleader and her whole page is about gay pride,” Champagne told KUTV.

It was clearly a fake account, so Champagne decided to do some digging. She also found pictures of herself and her 9-month-old son.

She says the anonymous user had “hash-tagged porn sites” onto the children’s photos.

“My kids are all over at least 11 porn sites that I’ve found today,” she said.

The pictures she found came from her Facebook page, which she says is set to be visible only to her friends.

The photos weren’t doctored but were attached to extremely graphic content.

“I feel beyond violated, so I don’t even know what they would feel,” she said. “I can’t even tell you how long I’ve been awake since last night and today, just trying to take down every photo I find. They’ve gone to so many places.”

Police say their hands are tied since there was no actual crime committed.

“I seriously feel like the worst mom having have put these on there and seeing what happened,” she said. “I didn’t feel that posting family photos could turn into something like that.”
