Jennifer and Ariana are two of the celebs that were hit by the hacking scandal, Aug. 31 and unfortunately the list keeps growing. Although Ariana has denied the pics are of her, HollywoodLife.com has learned what several of the celebs think about the breach of their security!
Jennifer Lawrence, 24, had several nude photos of herself leak on a website called 4chan and now the FBI is investigating. But this is just one of the names, Kirsten Dunst is another A-list celeb who had this happen to her too. Ariana Grande, denies that the photos that claim to be her, are actually her, but with so many pics being leaked, it definitely makes you wonder why celebs take these kinds of pics in the first place!
Ariana Grande & Jennifer Lawrence: Center Of Nude Photo Leak
The pics of Jennifer, leave little to the imagination, and when we spoke to her rep, we got this statement:
“This is a flagrant violation of privacy. The authorities have been contacted and will prosecute anyone who posts the stolen photos of Jennifer Lawrence.”
Initially, the pictures were said to have leaked from a breach of security within Apple’s iCloud, according to BuzzFeed. But Apple has since come out and denied that it had anything to do with them. The list of celebrities that 4chan claims to have pictures of includes: Kim Kardashian, Rihanna, Cara Delevingne, Victoria Justice, Selena Gomez, and more. There are over 100 names and it’s shocking!
Celebrity Nude Photo Scandals: Are The Celebs To Blame
In our Sept. 2, HollywoodLife Says, we debate whether the celebrities are the ones to blame for taking these pics in the first place. Our senior entertainment editor, Elizabeth Wagmeister, thinks it’s outrageous that celebs would ever take these types of pictures and be so stupid to share them. But our senior reporter, Chloe Melas, doesn’t understand why it’s all about the girls, where aren’t their pics of guys? She thinks that it almost seems a bit sexist, with the exception of Kate Upton‘s boyfriend, Justin Verlander, who is in several of the photos. May we point out that he isn’t only naked with Kate, there are other girls in pics with him which make us wonder when the photos were taken! Hopefully long before he dated Kate.
Our news editor, Emily Longeretta, believes that celebrities should be smarter if they are going to take sexy pictures. For instance, they should crop their heads out!
HollywoodLifers, should the celebrities be the ones to blame in this situation or the hackers?
