Rob Kardashian is in trouble in more ways than one.

On the morning of July 5, Kardashian posted a series of naked photos of ex Blac Chyna as part of a giant Instagram rampage. This was after he allegedly learned she cheated on him.

As part of the rant, Kardashian included some wild accusations, saying Chyna abuses drugs and alcohol, used him for money, and slept with other men.

However, Kardashian took it way, WAY too far, and posted an outrageous number of nude pics Chyna allegedly sent him, privately.

Rob, this is called revenge pornand it's really, really messed up.

Elite Daily reached out to Kardashian and Chyna's teams for comment, but did not hear back by time of publication.

The Merriam-Webster definition for revenge porn is:

Sexually explicit images of a person posted online without that person's consent especially as a form of revenge or harassment.

Yup. Checks out.

Additionally, there are 38 states that have laws in place against revenge porn, according to Cyber Civil Rights Initiative. In Kardashian's home state of California, the law was amended in 2014 to say,

This bill would instead provide that a person who intentionally distributes an image, as described, of the intimate body part or parts, as defined, of another identifiable person, or an image of the person depicted engaging in specified sexual acts, under circumstances in which the persons agree or understand that the image remain private, the person distributing the image knows or should know that distribution of the image will cause serious emotional distress, and the person depicted suffers that distress, is guilty of disorderly conduct. The bill would also provide that it is not a violation of this provision to distribute the image under certain circumstances, including where the distribution is made in the course of reporting an unlawful activity. The bill makes other technical and clarifying changes. Because this bill would broaden the scope of a crime, it would impose a state-mandated local program.

You hear that, Rob?

According to Wallin and Klarich Law Corporation, disorderly conduct is a misdemeanor and could land someone in county jail for up to six months.

That sounds pretty damn good to Twitter.

However, something tells me Rob is kind of down to watch his world burn right now???

At this point, it's unclear what will happen to Rob Kardashian after leaking Chyna's nudes. Regardless, here's a friendly reminder to everyone else: revenge porn is a crime.
