Shawkat was left aghast at how much the news cycle focused on her — and even how much her friends wouldn’t leave well enough alone.

“I was like, ‘I don’t believe this,’” she recalled. “All my friends were like ‘What’s going on?’ and sending me photos. I just felt overwhelmed. It’s that feeling of being naked in school, like, ‘Oh my God, everyone’s looking at me.’”
