FBI Investigating 'Unlawful' Celebrity Nude Photos Scandal

FBI Investigating 'Unlawful' Celebrity Nude Photos Scandal

The FBI is reportedly getting involved following the news that Jennifer Lawrence and many other A-list stars have become the latest victims of nude photo leaks.

“The FBI is aware of the allegations concerning computer intrusions and the unlawful release of material involving high profile individuals, and is addressing the matter,” a spokesperson for the FBI said in a statement (via TMZ). “Any further comment would be inappropriate at this time.”

Several celebrities including Jennifer, Kate Upton, and others have responded to the leak already and Kirsten Dunst even took a jab at Apple in a tweet.

Although this was a horrible incident. It kind of proved what we’ve always known, actors sleep around a lot.

# 2

meanwhile in africa sick children are dying, but instead jlaw nudes are on their top list. get over urself.

# 3

Also… Jennifer Lawrence slept with someone from the cast/crew of Hunger Games.

While the hacking and posting of private pictures via iPhone, Samsung and the other devices (Apple was not the only one) is an invasion of privacy, let this be a wake up call to those thinking that digital media is private. If you are going to use a digital service, know that NOTHING is private and deleted pictures don’t just “vanish” off the grid. If the FBI and CIA can be hacked so can you.

I really hope those BJ videos aren’t of Jen. It does look like her though. So embarrassing :/

@LOL these pictures do not prove they sleep around at all, it proves that young women take naked selfies for themselves (a little vain) and for their partners in privacy but some hacker stole that privacy. Also the Jennifer specific post of yours it does not prove she slept around to get movies, she took pictures on a couch and automatically you assume things, they were stolen from her account so it was probably her bf or friend who took them. Must be nice to post anonymous condemning things with no retribution. They took nudies, whats the big deal.

@Sienna the BJ videos and photos have been proven false by the same guys who stole the pictures on 4chan and AnonIB, the BJ vids are Jessica Brown Findlay and the supposed photos were posted months before of a random girl. Its just bikinis, boobs, and frontal shots and the original hacker said he has a video of her shaking her boobs while dancing. Invasion of her privacy was horrible but I don’t think she should be ashamed of the pictures as they are playboy types of pictures.

@boo:

You obviously read just jared so you care enough about celebs. There were over 100 celeb ladies who were hacked, that is a big enough problem for the FBI to investigate. Its not like these women asked the FBI to investigate, they all said they would go to the authorities and it probably got escalated from there to the FBI. The FBI should investigate because what if sensitive material from say army generals, white house staff, congressmen, etc get stolen based off what these hackers did. I don’t understand why people are blaming and now hating the women who were hacked, it was not their fault it was icloud and the hacker. Some nasty person broke their expectation of privacy.

It’s not the first time something like this happened… I don’t remember such a movement because of that in the past? FBI? Really? C’mon!

@B.:

The FBI is involved because it is a crime.

narcissistic trollops, that’s what you get

The FBI is investigating who leaked all those nudes but Darren Wilson is free & cops are breaking the law. lol ok. But this isn’t about race right okay! Ummmmm!

@Tiana:

Yes it is about race. An unarmed black youth can be gunned down, and there has to be protests in the streets to get the police to investigate.
But a bunch of loose women can get their naked pics swiped, and the authorities are right on it.

@Tiana:

I see what you mean. I know hacking is a crime, but gunning down unarmed youth is WAY MORE SERIOUS.

Such a waste of time, money and spittle!
But we are in Usa, land of Hollywood stars and guns!
Damn it!

The hackers are completely and should be punished, but I don’t understand people still taking Nude pics knowing Hackers are out there.

The violators should be brought to justice but it does go yo show you these pretty young actresses are the most conceited ppl on the planet.

If these were “common” people, the FBI would tell them to eat sh*t. But since it’s celebs, everyone’s jumping to catch the perps. These celebs are morons to take these photos to begin with, and I have no sympathy for them. Sorry, J-Law.

You're an idiot @ 09/02/2014 at 10:03 am

@guest: STFU, you racist. Yes, honey, it goes BOTH WAYS.

Surprise!! @ 09/02/2014 at 10:13 am

@LOL: She’s also hooked up with Hemsworth, too, people. She went and told everyone about it, too.

@Sienna: I do hope it is!!!

Just in case you were off planet when the Edward Snowden NSA Scandal came to light, there is really no such thing as 100% secure file storage if its connected to the internet. Especially if you use any third party storage… I store EVERYTHING on a portable hard drive… and dis-connect it when I am not using it.. You can get a terabyte portable hard drive for around $150.00, I never have to worry about losing anything or anyone stealing my files…and I don’t pay a monthly fee..

Hell, I don’t even really use my “smart phone”. My old dumb-one is good enough for me and its cheaper. It’s a waste of money just like so many other things in America like student loans (get a cheap education!), expensive car insurance (my $25/month policy from Insurance Panda is good enough for me), and fast food (who wants to pay $10 for a Chipotle burrito?!?).

Also – One way to completely ensure there are no nude photos of yourself that could wind up in an embarrassing situations is to NOT take them. Seems pretty logical to me…

“high profile individuals” oh LOL, speaks alot about who the FBI cares more about. it also speaks volumes on how twitter would shut down any tweets of links that show the nudes yet they won’t take down tweets and graphic, gory images of ISIS being a-holes. america is doing a really shi**y job by prioritizing the wrong things.

even though i think that the fbi investigating who leaked these pictures is a good thing, i can’t help but wonder if the same would happen if 20 “non-famous” woman had their naked pictures leaked

@Elisa: people who are not celebs do not get this kind of help from the law.
