People get the spotlight turned on them for a number of reasons, even for the seemingly odd ones. For some, it is for reasons that will make you cringe while others may draw attention by doing something good. Whatever be the case, most activities, famous or infamous always provide grist for the gossip mill, as well as fodder for tabloids. In the case of Kally Wayne, she came to our consciousness after a sex tape her ex-boyfriend made of them went viral.
Wayne is a Marine Corps veteran and an Instagram star too. Along with many other female service members, she was the alleged target of obscene and sexually explicit comments from members of a private Facebook group, following the release of explicit images of women in the group.
Kally Wayne’s Biography
Kally Wayne was born on August 22, 1994, in Maine, where she was also raised. Her birth sign is Leo. Other than what brought her to our awareness and the resultant social media fame, she has withheld from sharing further details about her personal life, including her family background and early years. Thus, there is not much out there about her parents and siblings, if she has any.
Information about her educational background is also not available at the moment. Kelly Wayne joined the Marine Corps in 2013 but was ousted three years later due to disciplinary problems. While she was in service, she met and started dating some guy whose identity she has preferred to keep to herself. She also joined the social media family through the photo-sharing app, Instagram, posting her first picture on her DedicatedRedneck08 account in October 2014.
Being a veteran, she was added to the private Facebook group created for the corps, Marines United. The private group has no less than 30,000 members, both active and veteran members. In 2017, some allegations erupted that some Marines shared explicit images of women in the group, photos intended to be private. Most of the pictures were taken from private accounts and shared by former partners of these women. Some of the pictures showed women posing topless or with their shirts open. The posts received many vulgar or sexually violent comments from group members. Beyond the group, some of the victims were accosted in public about the photos. Some of them also received vulgar and disturbing messages in their personal accounts as a result of the posts.
Unfortunately, Kally Wayne was one of those women and she couldn’t feel more humiliated in her whole life. The fact that the alleged photos were posted by her ex-boyfriend further exacerbated the matter. According to her, she felt like her privacy has been ripped from her. Who wouldn’t, especially when it’s a stab from a supposed friend.
Her ex-boyfriend is also a former Marine. They made a sex tape together and presumably after things turned sour between them, he shared the tape to the private group. Not only did she feel like her privacy was ripped from her, but she also had to face at least a year of harassment.
Kally Wayne spoke to ABC News to express her dismay at the invasion of privacy but also expressed her relief that the matter was brought to light. The story was also profiled by People Magazine.
