Former White House counselor Kellyanne Conway has been accused of posting a topless photograph of her teenage daughter, Claudia Conway, on Twitter.
Social media erupted on Monday night after Conways account, @KellyannePolls, allegedly sha red a Fleet a post on Twitters mobile platform that is meant to disappear after 24 hours showing a partially nude Claudia, who is 16. The image has since been deleted, but other Twitter users say they took screenshots of it.
The situation then made its way over to TikTok, where Claudia often posts about the goings-on within her family. Over the course of the last year, the teenager has been sharing videos that appear to show her tumultuous relationship with her parents, Kellyanne Conway and vocal anti-Trump lawyer George Conway.
After commenters wrote on Claudias posts that Kellyanne Conways account had shared a topless photo of her, the teen made videos telling her followers, I dont know if this is a joke or not, but Im really scared and asking, Is this real?
In a since-deleted video, Claudia told fans: Im assuming that when my mom took my phone ... she took a picture of that so that was on her phone. I guess she accidentally posted it or somebody hacked her. But nobody would ever have any photo like that, ever. So, Kellyanne, youre going to fucking jail.
I have no comment, Kellyanne Conway told CNBC. Representatives for Claudia Conway did not immediately respond to HuffPosts request for comment.
