You can read Iggy’s full statement, which has since been deleted with her social channels, HERE.
ORIGINAL: Iggy Azalea‘s admirers got an eyeful on May 26 after some naked photos that were allegedly of her showed up all over the internet! Although the Australian 28-year-old singer didn’t confirm whether or not the pics in question were indeed of her body, many of her fans and other Twitter users were quick to tweet about their impressions after seeing the photos, which seems to only show her alleged breasts.
Fans instantly rallied around Iggy and showed support for the rapper. One user posted a serious tweet that expressed concern for the rapper’s private space. “Even if you don’t like Iggy Azalea, precedent shows that this could have a negative effects on her and on society’s general view of things like revenge porn, leaks, etc. Why do people constantly laugh at/search for celebrity nudes but sympathize with victims that aren’t famous?” the tweet read.
The hashtag “#RespectIggy” began trending on Twitter after the photos leaked. “Nobody deserves to have their privacy violated, made fun of by thousands, and get humiliated on social media. We hope you feel better soon, we’ll always love & support you no matter what happens. @IGGYAZALEA,” an Iggy fan site tweeted. Another fan wrote, “Respect her body, respect her choices, respect her feelings, RESPECT HER.
Some Twitter users took it as far as suggesting that the gorgeous Iggy may have leaked her own nude pics to help give her music more exposure. “Iggy Azalea intentionally leaks some pictures of her boobs and people freak. What a way to get more exposure to her ‘music'” one user wrote. Eek! Now that’s pretty harsh.
We’ll be on the lookout to see if Iggy decides to comment on the alleged nude photo leak. We reached out to her reps but have yet to receive a response.
