Megan Eugenio Aka Overtime Megan Leak Reddit

Popular TikTok creator Megan Eugenio, known as @overtimemegan, recently returned to the platform after her accounts disappeared in late April. It was discovered that she may have been the victim of a private photo and video leak, after a hacker allegedly broke into her phone. Fellow TikToker Noah Glenn Carter broke the story on April 28, which has since accumulated almost 9 million views.

Eugenio then made a statement of her own, posting on TikTok on May 2 that her personal content was allegedly stolen from her phone and was “sold, reproduced and posted everywhere on the internet.” She warned viewers that sharing the content was “participating in a crime.”

“I’m a victim,” she added. “It’s not my fault. It doesn’t define my self-worth. And I know, as a woman, that that was not meant for the public eye. That was meant for me.”

Eugenio expressed that it has been difficult to deal with this experience, as her private images are now all over the internet, with people posting links on Reddit and Twitter that violate her privacy. She reminded viewers that she is a real person with friends, family, and a job. Her statement has been viewed over 6.8 million times.

While comments were turned off on Eugenio’s video, Carter did not turn off comments on his recap of her statement. Unfortunately, the majority of the comments on Carter’s video do joke about Eugenio’s private images or claim that she was wrong for taking the photos in the first place. This victim-shaming behavior only adds to Eugenio’s trauma and is not acceptable.

Sharing or publicizing private images or videos without consent goes against civil and criminal law. It’s categorized as “nonconsensual pornography,” and is considered a crime. It’s important to remember that questioning why Eugenio would take the photos in the first place is like asking someone who got pickpocketed why they had their wallet in their back pocket. Any time someone defaults to questioning what a victim could have done differently to prevent a crime, they are participating, to some degree, in the culture of victim blaming.

Overtime Megan head has also been trending online the past couple of days but people need to remember that she is a real person who’s provacy was completely violated. Eugenio is not a unique case, unfortunately, as many women have experienced threats to have their private photos or videos shared. “One thing I know for sure is, you can take whatever from my phone, you can take all those images, whatever you want,” Eugenio continued. “[But] you can’t break my spirit.” It’s important to remember that victims of nonconsensual pornography should not be blamed, and those who share or publicize these images should be held accountable for their actions.
