HOUSTON, Texas (AP) – A Texas woman has filed a $123 million lawsuit contending that Facebook failed to remove a false profile of her created by a former friend who superimposed her face over pornographic images.

Meryem Ali in a revised suit filed this week in district court in Houston claims the former friend then invited Ali’s friends and family to visit the profile page. The lawsuit says the “revenge porn” case caused Ali “significant trauma” and “extreme humiliation.”

She claims Facebook over many months failed to act on repeated requests to have the page deleted. The company did eventually remove the page.

The suit says damages being sought represent 10 cents on the dollar for each of the 1.23 billion Facebook users.

Facebook media representatives did not immediately comment on the claims.
