Earlier today, photos of the 24 year old actress Jennifer Lawrence in varying levels of undress have been leaked over the internet by an anonymous source.
The one responsible for hacking Ms Lawrence’s iCloud had posted these photos on the /b/thread on 4chan, claiming that he currently possessed 60 nude photos of the actress, and even a sex tape.
There has been no response as of yet from Ms Lawrence or anyone, and it is too soon to confirm whether it is really the actress or just a lookalike.
Other actresses have apparently had nude photos of themselves leaked, including Victoria Justice, Ariana Grande and Kirsten Dunst.
A spokesperson for Jennifer Lawrence has issued the following 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.”
At least 2 of the celebrities known to be involved in the hacking scandal have posted their responses on Twitter:
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.
