Have you heard of Amber Cole? If you’ve visited the web at any point within the last week you would have surely read some reference to Amber Cole. She is a 14-year old girl who’s video was wildly seen after three young men videotaped her giving oral sex to her ex-boyfriend.

Reportedly Amber agreed to do the act to “win back” her ex-boyfriend. The young men posted the video that quickly went viral. But there’s one problem – well – there are some issues here. But Amber is 14-years old and watching a sexual act performed by someone underage is child pornography.

On all forms of social networks, Amber’s story was posted. One young lady even posted a Leave Amber Cole Alone video on YouTube. Here’s a snippet below:

“Y’all over here talking ‘bout this girl like she did a crime or something. Y’all need to stop. Leave Amber Cole alone,” she cries. “Y’all over here making fun of a girl because she likes to do a little head work in places. There’s nothing wrong with that… I don’t understand.”

A 14-year having oral sex, in a public at school with other boys videotaping and there’s nothing wrong with this???

Amber allegedly posted a few damaging tweets:

“So what if [first boy] exposed me. It doesn’t change my feeling towards him. I love him with everything and will always be here for him. I miss him.”

Is it too much to believe that young boys and girls should be too busy for these activities? Is it archaic to believe that a 14-year old should not have weekly access to social networking sites, cell phones and all the latest technologies?

I have nothing to say about Amber Cole or the young men who posted the video – they are all victims of a larger issue.
