Game show host and Whose Line Is It Anyway star made a virtual appearance on The Talk on Tuesday. Brady had a lot to say with regards to social media platforms such as Instagram & Facebook and their lack of protections when it comes to grown men DM-ing underage girls.
Brady pointed out that he and his ex-wife Mandie have oversight of their 17-year old daughter Maile’s social media accounts and monitor all the activity thereon. Especially with regards to her DMs. He expressed his concerns about the issue, mentioning when Mandie posed as his daughter when conversing with a grown man seeking an inappropriate conversation with Maile. On the matter he had this to say:
“Mandie got on the line with one of them and was, you know, texting back and forth and he was talking slick, until he realized that it was her,” The comedian said. “And then she’s like ‘What the hell are you doing?’ And he’s like, ‘I just broke up with my girlfriend, and I just saw her.’ That doesn’t mean anything. You tell that to your cellmate when we put you in jail. You can talk all about your post-breakup relationship then.”
Brady also pointed out the all the hate speech & anti-catfishing protections but they offer virtually no protections for underage girls who are being preyed upon by adult men. Brady has become passionate about getting these protections put in place and is in the process of creating an initiative that would squash this behavior online.
“You can try to block a person’s account and report them for hate speech… you can report them for trying to be someone else, but in order to really get to them to say, hey, this person is saying something damning or showing images to a young woman or even to a woman who gets a salacious pic, all of the the tap dancing you need to do to get that person reported shouldn’t happen,” He continued “If this is what social media is, make the tools available to deal with these reprehensible people.”
