Tearful Heidi Crowter has only just been told about the sexual and derogatory comments being made about an innocent picture of her online.
The 16-year-old has been the target of several other sick pages on Facebook bearing her image.
The photos of Heidi, from Coventry, as a toddler had been stolen from a website for a parents’ support group.
Horrified mum Liz and husband Steve have been bombarding Facebook to take down the sites and so far only one has been removed.
Liz, 45, said the internet trolls behind the posts had been using images of her daughter for months and Facebook had made no direct contact with her to resolve the issue.
Heidi’s pictures were taken from a local support group website, which Liz ran for about five years.
She said pages carrying Heidi’s image are still active despite Liz reporting the problem TWO WEEKS ago.
She said: “It’s almost like Faceless rather than Facebook, we have been repeatedly trying to take these distressing sites down and I have not once had a direct response.
“These trolls are cowardly, nasty people who should be punished for the damage they are doing to people with their comments.
“They have no right to take Heidi’s image and use it alongside these cruel sites. If you look at the lad who made those comments about Fabrice Muamba online, he was taken to court.
“Heidi has told me she is very upset by the sites and she turns her head away when we have them on the computer screen.”
