WARNING - This video is about suicide and may be distressing for some.

Yesterday Rob Kardashian took to Instagram to post naked/explicit photos of his ex partner, Blac Chyna. 

This is known as 'revenge porn' and is illegal in New Zealand. 

The victims of revenge porn can suffer emotionally from the effects of their personal photos being publically displayed and in some cases, the consequences are devastating. 

Fletch, Vaughan and Caitlin spoke to victims of the revenge porn and you can hear their haunting stories above.
