A teenage girl allegedly pictured performing sexual acts at an Eminem concert in Ireland is said to be "distraught" after the images went viral on the Internet.

The 17-year-old girl, who has not been identified, is seen in the explicit photographs giving oral sex to a man wearing a green hat at the Eminem concert at Slane Castle on Saturday, reports the Daily Mail.

Police are investigating the matter due to concerns the images amount to child pornography since she is under 18 years old. The pics were taken in a public area of the concert site and are now widely circulating on the Internet.

Furthermore, the photo has garnered dozens of brash comments from people mocking the girl and trying to reveal her identity. At the same time, many people were praising her sexual partner as a "hero" and a "legend," reports Mirror.Uk.

Images of the schoolgirl, dressed in denim shorts and a polka dot t-shirt, have been shared by hundreds of users on social media, while the incident became a global trending topic as users dubbed the couple involved "slanegirl" and "slaneboy."

The unidentified teen is reportedly extremely distressed and embarrassed and is believed to have been sedated in hospital.

A source reportedly told the Irish Sun: "This is a very sensitive matter and the girl's family are distraught. "This is so out of character for her. She's currently very emotional and confused about the whole thing."

The person originally responsible for posting the graphic pictures online was reportedly a man from the Belfast area.

The photographs appeared online on Sunday and soon went viral on social media. Twitter, Facebook and Instagram have taken steps to block the photographs and suspend users sharing the images.
