    In an impassioned message posted on Facebook, her mother, Leah Parsons, wrote that four boys assaulted Rehtaeh in November 2011 and spread a photo of the act online, branding the teen a “slut” and launching an avalanche of harassment from her classmates.

      Read the blogpost.  She does NOT say it was posted online.  

      one of those boys took a photo of her being raped and decided it would be fun to distribute the photo to everyone in Rehtaeh’s school and community where it quickly went viral.

      Now, most people read "went viral" and assume she meant posted online, but if you look at the actual interviews she have to media, it is clear that is not what she meant.  (See my comment below)  The allegation she is actually making is that the photo was spread by text message.
