Police have visited the home of Kellyanne Conway after the former Trump adviser allegedly posted a topless photo of her 16-year-old daughter on Twitter.
Claudia Conway, who has gained a large social media following by publicly clashing with her high-profile parents, posted a TikTok video on Monday addressing the topless photo which appeared on her mother’s “Fleets” – Twitter’s new feature which deletes posts after 24 hours.
“I guess she accidentally posted it, or somebody hacked her. But nobody would ever have any photo like that ever.
“So, Kellyanne, you’re going to f***ing jail,” Claudia told her 1.6 million followers.

Twitter said it was also conducting an investigation into the matter, according to a report from Variety. The social media platform said it was unclear how long the post had been on the site, how many people had seen it, or who deleted it.
On Tuesday, however, the teen posted another video saying she believed her mother had been hacked and begging people to stop contacting police.
“Yesterday when I was made aware of the situation I was distraught and very, very upset and I acted irrationally and impulsive and it is something I do regret,” she said.
According to the New York Post, four officers with the Bergen County Prosecutor’s Office and Alpine Police Department showed up with papers in hand to the family’s New Jersey mansion just before noon on Tuesday. They spent about an hour inside before leaving.
Alpine Police Chief Christopher Belcolle confirmed that “an investigation is being conducted” but that “no additional information can be released”, noting that records about minors were not made public.
The incident came days after the teen threatened online to release “hours and hours” of video she claimed would prove her mother was “abusive”.
Claudia rose to social media fame while posting about her frequent clashes with her prominent parents, Kellyanne, once a top adviser to former US president Donald Trump, and George, a lawyer who’s railed against Trump in the past.
In August, the teen said she was seeking emancipation from her parents.
Kellyanne declined to comment earlier Tuesday when contacted by the New York Post.
