Deletion of ‘deepfake’ porn films begins (no doubt fruitlessly)

Have you heard about the internet’s latest squalid, debasing, grotesque and vile pastime? Well, here we go – let’s be depressed together.

‘Deepfake’ films employ simple tech to allow even the ineptest and dim of users to trace people’s faces onto actors in pre-existing video – with the commonest output of this ‘art’ the hoisting of the visages of famous female actresses, singers and so on onto the heads of porn stars. Naturally.

Now a firm that hosts the degrading clips has begun deleting them, after claiming that they are ‘objectionable’.

Tat hosting site Gfycat simpered: ‘Our terms of service allow us to remove content that we find objectionable. We are actively removing this content.’

Fakeapp, the software that powers the sordid enterprise, has been downloaded over 100,000 times, presumably primarily by weak, inadequate men, for whom lust, aesthetics and revenge are all the same sort of thing.

The actress Emma Watson and the singer Ariana Grande are two of those lucky enough to have been virtually planted into pornographic films without their consent, for the gratification of literally thousands of…I suppose you could call them ‘men’, at a push.

Of course, it’s very hard if not totally impossible to completely remove a video from the internet, so this abysmal stuff will be out there forever.

The internet’s proud, mad, baffling war on women continues!
