Over 100 celebrities were the victim of a massive nude photo leak on Aug. 31, including Jennifer Lawrence and Ariana Grande! Read below for five things you need to know about the scandal!

Such a shame! Hollywood was rocked on Aug. 31, when a slew of nude photos were released in a massive hack, including racy shots of Ariana Grande, 21, Victoria Justice, 21, Kate Upton, 22, and Jennifer Lawrence, 24. HollywoodLife.com has put together a list of five things to know about the scandal being called, the fappening!

The Fappening Nude Photos Leaked

1. More than 100 celebrities have had their private pictures leaked by an anonymous 4Chan user.

So terrible. More and 100 stars have been the victim of this unfortunate hack. According to Time, the original pictures were released anonymously on 4Chan, and the hacker has promised to release even more pictures in the future. As HollywoodLife.com previously reported, some of the names on the list include, Kim Kardashian, Selena Gomez, Rihanna and Mary Elizabeth Winstead.

2. Jennifer Lawrence wants justice to be served

Jennifer is not taking this breach of privacy lightly. According to The Blaze, the Hunger Games actress has contacted the authorities and wants the hacker brought to justice. The Oscar winners rep confirmed to HollywoodLife.com that the pics are in fact real. “This is a flagrant violation of privacy. The authorities have been contacted and will prosecute anyone who posts the stolen photos of Jennifer Lawrence.”

3. Alleged hacker, Brian Hamade, denies his involvement 

According to Mail Online, the 26-year-old software engineer denied that he was the one who hacked the celebrity accounts. While he did not do the hacking, the site claims that he did try sell pictures for $100.

He told the site, “I am not behind this. I lied to someone on reddit to try and get bitcoins with a photoshopped picture. ”He also admitted that he had been an “idiot,” after saying that he lied about being the hacker and declared that the photo he was trying to sell was actually fake.

4. Anonymous 4Chan users admit to hacking into Apple iCloud accounts

Time reports that the leading theory is that hackers found a spot of vulnerability in the app, “Find My iPhone.” Apparently the app is different from most of Apple’s because it does have protection from “brute force,” which are programs that guess random passwords for a username until it gets a match. An Apple spokeswoman told ReCode, that they are “actively investigating,” the hack, and that, “We take user privacy very seriously and are actively investigating this report.”

5. Celebrity victims speak out:

Jennifer is not the only celebrity to be vocal about the crime. As HollywoodLife.com reported, Kirsten Dunst, 32, sent out a tweet saying, “Thank you iCloud.” The actress made sure to downplay her anger by adding in a few silly emojis including the pizza icon!

Mary Elizabeth Winstead confirmed that the leaked pics are in fact of her, by sending out a few unhappy tweets. One read, “To those of you looking at photos I took with my husband years ago in the privacy of our home, hope you feel great about yourselves.”

What do YOU think, HollywoodLifers? Do you think the scandal is being handled the right way? Let us know your thoughts below!

I really feel sorry for esp. for the actors and actresses involved, but get real everyone. With tech being what it is these days EVERYTHING and I mean EVERYTHING can be hacked by Geeks even deleted stuff what do you think is the purpose of those so called FREE SCANS is. Even digital cameras have wifi. The TV Host on the right was right (Sorry not familiar with the show.) DO NOT TAKE PG13 or higher rated selfies or vid and definitely don’t sms them to others or post them anywhere even secretly. SOMEONE ELSE WILL SEE IT NO MATTER WHAT PRECAUTIONS YOU TAKE . You cannot place all the blame on Iphones or whatever. It is just human nature to take the selfies and to want to see them. It is part of what we all are made of.

Why is it that all these Hollywood stars run around taking nude photographs of themselves in compromising positions? This sounds like the latest publicity stunt to me as the average person just doesn’t go around snapping pictures of their naughty bits on cell phones.

Either you don’t understand the definition of cell phones, or you don’t understand the average person. As yes, yes they do. Or at least people under about 50 do…. Perhaps you’re 52, and just missed the sexting revolution?

It’s the day and age we live in with all this technology at our disposal, and the certain things we’ve cultivated into our society because of the over specialization of the human body. We live and we learn.

It seems she has no problem being seen nude else she would not have done what she did. People get used to being nude a lot easier than they think.

Pardon my confusion, but if you post anything on the internet, it can be seen. Take control–don’t post what you don’t want seen!
