A Texas mother is hoping the topless woman who photobombed her family vacation pictures goes viral.
Monica Davila, of Cypress, Texas, wants the photobomber to feel a sense of shame for her actions.
“Let’s make this go viral so that she can be embarrassed,” she said in a recent Facebook post, which has already received hundreds of comments.
Davila told ABC13 that she only learned of the stunt this week, when she was looking through pictures from a family trip to Garner State Park. Her family had taken the trip in honor of her husband’s recently deceased grandmother.
“I just feel completely disrespected,” Davila said in an interview with ABC13. “I just think this person should be held accountable. What she did was wrong. There were kids there watching her.”
“You see her boob, nipple, everything,” she added.
The offending photo appears to show a young child looking directly at the photobomber, who is smiling while lifting her shirt to expose her breast.
Davila said she’d received both understanding and critical comments in response to her story.
“I’ve had criticism on both sides, people are like, ‘Who cares, it’s just a boob,’ but I care,” Davila said.
“Me personally, I think this is a big deal,” she added.
Davila has filed a report with Uvalde police who are reportedly looking into the incident.
Monica Davila compares the photobombing incident to a grotesque new trend
Davila likened the photobombing her family experienced to a viral licking challenge that has fascinated, and disgusted, the internet recently.
“These days people don’t think before they pull a prank,” she told ABC13.
A bizarre new trend, popular among teens and millennials, features videos of people licking various items on store shelves and in establishments. The viral craze gained national attention after footage of a Texas woman licking a tub of ice cream and putting it back at a Walmart was widely disseminated on social media. She was later arrested and may be charged with tampering with a consumer product, a second-degree felony charge carrying a maximum of 20 years in prison. The viral video prompted imitators to create their own vile versions, and a second man was arrested for doing the same thing in a Louisiana store.
Last week, a Florida mother was arrested Thursday after video of her daughter licking a tongue depressor and putting it back at a Jacksonville medical center went viral.
Many on social media have expressed their disgust at the trend.
When I am dictator, anyone caught licking ice cream at the grocery store will be shot on sight. Also anyone who touches produce and puts it back, or takes too long in the self-checkout, or leaves their shopping cart in the parking lot, or uses more than 2 coupons.

Some view the licking challenge as an indictment on the current generation of young people.
“I remember years ago challenges were actually real challenges that could not make anybody felons, ‘ice bucket’ ‘Mannequin challenge’ but now this generation nowadays licking ice cream & putting it back y’all crazy crazy and nasty nasty!!” wrote one commenter on social media.
