At this time UglyMugs.ie would like to remind the media that our ugly mug scheme is private and only available to sex workers.
The violation of the privacy of our ugly mug scheme by media who have gained access via posing as sex worker victims of crime or any other means is unacceptable.
Any disclosure of confidential sex worker only safety information by the media puts people selling sexual services in Ireland at risk and is highly irresponsible. UglyMugs.ie will take all action possible to prevent media violating the privacy of our ugly mug scheme.
The private pain of people selling sexual services who have been a victim of crime is not entertainment for the masses. It is unacceptable for any media to obtain ugly mug scheme data unethically and use it without the consent of UglyMugs.ie or the victims of crime.
