LOS ANGELES— Carter Reynolds, a 19-year-old originally from North Carolina who shot to fame on the social media site Vine, is facing an Internet backlash after a private video of him and his ex-girlfriend Maggie Lindemann leaked online.
In the video, which has been taken down, Carter is heard attempting to persuade Maggie to perform a sex act on him as he films her. Also clearly heard in the tape is Maggie expressing reluctance and also saying she felt uncomfortable with the idea. Carter however, repeatedly continues to attempt to persuade her.
Fans have now turned on Carter, saying he needs to learn what "consent" means. Carter released an apology note on his Twitter account in which he admitted he crossed the line in this case but stressed that it was a private video not intended for release and that he did not actually force his now ex-girlfriend into any sexual acts. Carter claims the video was stolen from an iCloud account.
Maggie Lindemann and Carter Reynolds have since broken up, with Lindemann saying the content of the leaked video had nothing to do with the breakup; instead blaming the end of their relationship on other negative aspects of Carter's personality.
