Madison Beer felt “powerless” and struggled with post-traumatic stress disorder after several of her nude videos leaked online when she was 15 years old.
“I was so disturbed by it and so afraid. I felt so unsafe and just, like, scared,” the “Melodies” singer recalled on the “Call Her Daddy” podcast Wednesday.
There were so many layers of peeling the onion of how that made me feel and … no one saying that it was wrong.”
Beer, now 24, explained to host Alex Cooper that she “vividly” remembers when a friend first texted her an NSFW video that she had sent to the boy she was seeing at the time, and then another friend sent her a second clip the next day.
“I knew in my bones that the second this was texted to me it would end up on the internet, unfortunately, and I couldn’t run from that fact,” she continued.

Beer eventually saw the video spread to “every social media platform” — including Vine, one of the most popular apps at the time.
“I think that some people that maybe haven’t gone through it, or men, don’t understand how truly traumatizing something like this can be, especially for a minor,” she shared.
