Adding to the long list of celebrities who have had nude photos leaked over the past several weeks are several additional names. The new women affected are not taking the situation lightly, with several promising to cooperate fully with the Federal Bureau of Investigations (FBI).
The latest victims of the celebrity hacking scandal include stars like Gabrielle Union, Amber Heard, Rihanna, Hayden Panettiere, Kaley Cuoco, Kim Kardashian, Vanessa Hudgens, Kate Bosworth, Avril Lavigne, Leelee Sobieski, and Lake Bell.
This past Sunday, nude photos of the women surfaced on the internet and according to a social media site, over 50 images of Amber Heard, Johnny Depp’s fiancé, surfaced alone.
Without question, young female celebrities are primary target of the mysterious hackers. As part of the ongoing scandal, Aubrey Plaza, had a private video hacked and Jennifer Lawrence was not only attacked once but once again, completely nude photos were revealed.
According to the hacker’s “master list”, all of the women from last month until now have been included. However, law enforcement officials do not believe the hackers are done by a long shot. After all, the list contained many other women to include Cara Delevingne and Mary Kate Olsen.
The case has been turned over to the FBI who according to an insider, are investigating one of the largest hacking scandals of all times. Apparently, there are more than 100 names on the master list. In an already upsetting situation, women on the list not yet exposed live in fear.
Jennifer Lawrence along with Kate Upton and others have vowed that once the digital photography thieves are caught, they will take legal action. In the case involving Gabrielle Union, she sent her husband a private topless photo that was somehow stolen and leaked. In response, the two have also contacted the FBI.
The famous couple put out a formal statement in which they verified that private moments shared between a husband and wife had been leaked by vultures. A large number of the intimate photos have shown up on Reddit and Twitter but these two sites are not excluded.
At this time, the FBI has not identified the person or persons responsible but they will not let up on the investigation until justice is done on behalf of all the women affected.
