A Houston teen is claiming that she had no clue she was raped at a party until pictures of the assault began popping up on Instagram.

Jada recalls being invited to a house party, and she ultimately decided to attend because her friend knew the host. During the bash, the 16-year-old girl claims that she was given a drink that caused her to pass out. She doesn’t remember much after that.

It wasn’t until pictures of her wound up online that she pieced together what may have happened. In the first shot, she was lying unconscious on a bed with all of her clothes on. Horrifyingly, she was passed out naked on the floor in the next picture. From these images, Jada believes that she was raped.

At first, kids were sharing the pictures on social media. Then, Jada’s alleged rapist hopped on Twitter to plead his innocence and openly mock her. His online behavior has only been encouraged by those laughing along with him. The alleged rapist’s behavior as well as the people who encouraged his jokes are an example of just how mean people can be.

Jada has been left feeling as though she was attacked twice, but she does have her supporters. She wants her rapist to be brought to justice. “I had no control,” she told KHOU. “I didn’t tell anyone to take my clothes off and do what they did to me.”

If there is any silver lining in this story, it is that Jada hasn’t allowed the sexual assault to define her. The humiliation might force some victims to withdraw from the world, and Jada has begun home schoolingg. However, the high school student didn’t see the point in concealing her identity.

“There’s no point in hiding,” Jada said. “Everybody has already seen my face and my body, but that’s not what I am and who I am.”
