Celebrity hackers struck again. Less than a month after the 4chan Apple iCloud nude photos leak, more nude celebrity photos hit Reddit and 4chan during the weekend.
Rihanna, Kim Kardashian, Vanessa Hudgens and US soccer star Hope Solo are among those whose private photos were publish Saturday, along with many more entertainers.
Rihanna is the latest victim. TMZ reports that two alleged nude pictures of Rihanna appeared on 4chan and Reddit early Sunday morning and the photos appear to have been taken during a fitting.
The 26-year-old superstar has not yet addressed the incident on social media.
However, Kaley Cucoo, “The Big Bang Theory” star, choose to speak out by herself, joking about it last week on “Jimmy Kimmel Live.”
Cuoco said she’s accustomed to people posting fake nude photos of her online, but she was taken aback when these pictures turned out to be real. Although she was upset, she decided to poke fun at the story, and tweeted a faux-blurred-out photo of her and her husband.
“It was just a really bad situation, but I took it into my own hands and made a joke about it,” she told Kimmel. “Because, you know, what are you going to do?”
Gabrielle Union and Meagan Good have both released statements that confirm the pictures and condemn them being shared.
Kim Kardashian was apparently involved in the leak, but the queen of reality television, who arguably became famous after her sex tape with ex-boyfriend Ray Jay was released, has remained silent.
This time the site’s administrators removed the photos as part of a new policy but the photos spread almost instantaneously across the Internet anyway.
