AI tools that can be used to create pornographic images are easy to find online and are even pushed by accounts on Google’s YouTube and China’s TikTok.
TikTok posts are promoting “AI clothing removal” websites, saying users can “remove clothes from any picture,” including those of their “crush,” while YouTube videos are also showing users how to make “not safe for work AI images,” according to a report by NewsNation.
“Do you have any picture of your crush? I’ve discovered an incredible AI website that I’m sure you’ll find interesting because no girl wants you to know about this tool. You can remove the clothes from any picture,” an apparent AI-generated man reportedly says in a TikTok video.
