    That's disgusting.

    But on the bright side, now one can more readily deny authenticity of real, non-deepfake videos :)

    OK. But how could someone "protect themselves"? Maybe never post real photos online? That's almost impossible. I mean, I don't post photos of myself. My meatspace self, I mean. But there's no way that I can stop others from doing it. Cameras and phones are everywhere.

    Predictable, I guess.

    But won't most people figure out that you can't trust any video?
