Washington’s Lottery takes down mobile site after woman complained app’s AI created topless photo of her

Washington’s Lottery "Test Drive a Win" app was unavailable on the website early Wednesday after a woman claimed the AI made a topless image of her.

Washington’s Lottery has pulled its new mobile site which utilizes artificial intelligence (AI) after a woman complained that the app’s AI created a pornographic image of her, according to a report.

The lottery’s “Test Drive a Win” app allowed users to upload a photo and have the AI superimpose their image at a vacation spot chosen through the site. One user, however, says the chance to see themselves on a computer-generated dream vacation turned into a shock.

Megan, a 50-year-old mother in Tumwater, Washington, told “The Jason Rantz Show” on KTTH on Tuesday that she landed on a “swim with the sharks” selection and used the site’s option to upload a photo of her face.

Megan said the super-imposed vacation photo that the AI generated showed her smiling on a bed only partially clothed in a bathing suit bottom as fish in an apparent aquarium swim around the room.

She called the topless AI photo a “disturbing” use of tax dollars.

“I also think whoever was responsible for it should be fired,” she said.

Fox News Digital reached out to Washington’s Lottery but did not immediately hear back.

A spokesperson for the lottery issued a statement to the Seattle-based show saying that it received a report about an incident in which the AI created a lewd image earlier this week.

“As soon as we did, we had the developers check all the parameters for the platform and were comfortable with the settings, but after further internal discussions today, we chose to take down the site out of an abundance of caution, as we don’t want something like this purported event to happen again,” the statement said.
