Slam for Jada

 
By now you've heard about Jada. Last week, images of the 16-year-old's sexual assult went viral on social media accompanied with a mocking hashtag: #jadapose. There was an outcry across the internet, and today, "during an interview with MSNBC’s Ronan Farrow, Jada unveiled a new image and a new hashtag to drown out the materials related to her assault: #IAmJada, with her fist raised.
