The picture of Alaska Mathews, who was featured on the TLC network show “Toddlers & Tiaras,” was lifted from the show’s Web site.
“It’s gross and it is sick and it’s about a child,” Mathews said.
Mathews said that some people blamed her, claiming she made her daughter a target by allowing her to participate in pageants and in the TLC show, Mallett reported.
“This isn’t about a pageant girl,” Mathews said. “This isn’t about pageants. This is about a child being put on an adult Web site and talked about in an explicit way and it being OK.”
Mathews said that law enforcement officials told her that what the man posted on the adult Web site was not illegal.
Mathews said that she wanted to change that, Mallett reported.
“If there isn’t a law about it, there needs to be one,” Mathews said.
