Some Garbage Person Just Leaked A Bunch Of Naked Photos Of Jennifer Lawrence

Jennifer Lawrence attending an American Hustle press conference December 2013Happy three-day weekend everybody, are we all enjoying ourselves? If you said yes, chances are you aren't a female celebrity, because several of them are in a real nightmare situation right now.

In a tale that's unfortunately as old as time, a hacker has supposedly stolen nude photos from a shitload of female celebrities including Jennifer Lawrence, Kate Upton, Ariana Grande, Krysten Ritter, and Victoria Justice, and posted them on 4chan, at which point they spread like wildfire across all the corners of the internet willing to post them. And before you get all excited and scroll to the bottom to see the pics, you should know that we aren't one of those corners, because we have this crazy belief that people are entitled to their privacy, even if they also happen to be famous.

At first it wasn't clear whether the photos were actually of the actresses in question, but given that J-Law's representatives have already contacted TMZ to make a statement, it certainly seems likely.

“This is a flagrant violation of privacy. The authorities have been contacted and will prosecute anyone who posts the stolen photos of Jennifer Lawrence.”

This hacker claims to have around sixty photos of Jennifer in the nude, and has already released pictures of close to a dozen other celebrities, including Mary Elizabeth Winstead, who responded thusly on her Twitter:

I absolutely understand the impulse to defend yourself in a situation like this, but none of these women have anything to excuse. They have a reasonable expectation of privacy on their own phones or computers, and that privacy was violated by some jack-off trying supposedly trying to make himself some Bitcoins.

The only consolation is that authorities have been cracking down on this kind of theft of personal information lately, like that dude who stole nude photos from Mila Kunis and Scarlett Johansson a while back, who got ten years in prison. Not a ton of consolation for the women who have their parts on display all over the internet right now, but at least it's something. Cripes.
