Various media reported that there are photos of Hollywood celebrities such as Jennifer Lawrence, Ariana Grande, and Kate Upton nude photos were leaked late Sunday afternoon following what appears to be a large-scale hack.
Nude photos first appeared on a 4Chan thread (very NSFW). Lawrence’s publicist Bryna Rifkin has confirmed, in an official statement to Buzzfeed, that the photos were of her client:
This is a flagrant violation of privacy. The authorities have been contacted and will prosecute anyone who posts the stolen photos of Jennifer Lawrence.
Around 60 photos of Lawrence were posted and acquired via a massive hack of her Apple’s iCloud then posted on 4chan by users offering more explicit material in exchange for bitcoin payments.
