A "callous" mum who posted a nude photo of a former lover to humiliate him after their fling went sour has been jailed for three months.
A judge said he had to send Yasmin Walker to prison to make it clear that revenge porn is a serious offence.
The 30-year-old wanted vengeance after a man she met on Instagram told her he wanted to be just friends, Yorkshire Live reports.
Walker decided to upload a naked photograph of the man alongside three laughing emojis and a mocking caption.
She posted the private snap on Instagram, where she has more than 1,000 followers, and captioned it "what the f*** is that?" next to three laughing emojis.
The victim was then sent a screenshot of the post. He begged her to take the image down and said he was contacting the police.
Prosecutor Lewis Allan Kerr said the defendant deleted the post after it had been online for 11 minutes.
"Not my fault you got a little d*** and is s*** in bed," she later messaged him on WhatsApp, reported The Sun.
Walker, who lives in Scarborough, North Yorkshire, was convicted of disclosing a personal sexual photo with intent to cause distress at the town's magistrates court.
Her victim did not provide the court with a victim personal statement however, he had previously told The Sun newspaper that he'd "had nights out where people have been shouting stuff about it".
Walker denied the offence, claiming she had posted the picture accidentally.
Prosecuting lawyer Philip Morris told the court that Walker "attempted, quite callously, to humiliate him".
Walker has four previous convictions for four dissimilar offences, including drink-driving, threatening and abusive behaviour and battery. She has also been cautioned for battery.

The court was told an ex-partner of the defendant's was jailed for 12 years for an attack on her that resulted in her losing sight in one eye and having difficulties with sight in the other eye.
Graham Parkin, mitigating, said his client was suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder from the attack at the time of the offence. He said she is addressing her cannabis use problem.
Walker's grandmother attended court to support her.
Judge Sean Morris, the Recorder of York, said he had to jail the defendant "so people know revenge porn means prison".
Legislation designed to clamp down on revenge porn was introduced in 2015.
People caught sending nude photos of other people without their consent and with the intention of embarrassing them can now get up to two years in prison.
