Deep-fake videos have become a growing concern in the last few years with celebrities bearing the brunt of it. Deep-fake is an artificial intelligence-based technique. The videos are digitally-altered by combining and superimposing existing images and videos onto source images or videos. In the past, a similar video appeared to show former president Barack Obama calling Donald Trump a ‘total and complete dips***'. 

 As per a Daily Mail report, numerous celebrities have been the victims of deep-fakes porn, including Gal Gadot and Emma Watson, in which their face has been superimposed to that of a pornstar in a video.
