Today, we will explore the Wisconsin Volleyball team’s viral video on Twitter and Reddit.
Following the internet publishing of private photographs and video of the women’s volleyball team that were never meant for public consumption, the University of Wisconsin and its police department have launched an investigation.
Wednesday afternoon, the Badgers’ athletic department issued a statement claiming that student-athletes contacted the UW-Madison Police Department after becoming aware that photographs they had taken were circulating on social media.
According to a statement issued by the sports department, the illicit sharing of the student-athletes’ personal information constitutes a grave and unacceptable breach of their privacy, as well as possible violations of university policy and criminal statutes.
According to department officials, the sports department contacted the UW-Madison Police Department after the women were alerted that the images and video were being distributed.
Tuesday, the sports department revealed that the UWPD is investigating numerous possible crimes, including the unauthorised dissemination of sensitive photographs.
When student-athletes discovered the content was being distributed, they notified UWPD.
UW Athletics has indicated that no volleyball student-athletes are being investigated for infractions.
UW Athletics commented, “Supporting our student-athletes is our primary objective, and we are providing them with the appropriate services and resources.”
Police are investigating multiple offences, including the unauthorised dissemination of sensitive photographs, according to UW Athletics.
Laura Schumacher never shied away from an audacious endeavour.
After committing to the recruiting class of 2024 for the Badgers, she decided to pursue her academic aspirations with the UW volleyball team.
She does this so she can compete at the highest level and win the championship, even if it costs her financially.
A photograph of members of the Wisconsin Team standing with their breasts exposed went viral on the internet.
