La modelo Alex Undone había alquilado un alojamiento a través de la plataforma Airbnb en Brooklyn, Nueva York, y descubrió una cámara oculta disfrazada de cargador de teléfono. En una publicación en su perfil de Instagram, Undone afirma que se percató de la cámara en la sala de visitas de la propiedad cuando se disponía a descansar luego de un día de trabajo.
"La única razón por la que sabía lo que era fue por un video de hace años que se hizo viral, en el que una joven modelo advirtió a otras mujeres sobre espeluznantes fotógrafos que las usaban en baños, vestuarios, etc.", escribió.
**update: his listing has been removed** My worst nightmare— Last Friday I was ready to kick up my feet and dive into a good book. I had been working all day so I ran a hot bath, ate, then headed towards the living room. To my horror I found a hidden camera in my @airbnb disguised as a phone charger. The only reason I even knew what it was is because years ago a video went viral when a young model warned other womxn about creepy photographers using them in bathrooms , changing areas etc. The police told me it was a gray area. It didn't matter that he hadn't disclosed this information to me or on his listing. It didn't matter that he possibly saw me naked. It was his house , and if I'm naked in the "common areas" then that's on me ?? According to Airbnb: "Airbnb does not permit security cameras or recording devices in private spaces, regardless of disclosure to guests. We require that hosts include this information in their listing descriptions, photos, and photo captions. Users found to be in violation of this policy may be suspended or deactivated." As of today, Brian Medenwaldt's listing is still active. It's hard to feel safe, especially as a womxn when there are no real consequences. My privacy was violated and used for God only knows what. My peace of mind was robbed and I won't even allow myself to think how much worse this could have been had my daughter been with me. Please protect yourselves because these systems won't. Know what a hidden camera looks like, and thoroughly check the spaces you rent. Please share , repost , and spread the word. Thank you to my friends and loved ones that held me down and emotionally supported me through this. Love y'all ??
