Keke Palmer latest victim in nude celebrity photo hacks
Palmer, who stars in Broadway’s edition of “Cinderella,” reportedly appears fully clothed in some pictures
U.S. actress Keke Palmer is the latest victim of the celebrity nude photo hacks that have rocked Hollywood in recent weeks, Bustle entertainment news website reported.
Palmer, who stars in Broadway’s edition of “Cinderella,” reportedly appears fully clothed in some pictures and partially clothed in others. In some of the topless photos, posted online, her piercings and tattoos are visible. However, it is yet to be confirmed whether it really is Palmer in the leaked photos.
The 21 year-old is best known for starring Nickelodeon’s “Tru Jackson” and Akeelah and the Bee opposite Laurence Fishburne.
After news of the photos broke, Palmer seemed to ignore the incident and posted a selfie on her Instagram and Twitter accounts. While she did not release a public statement addressing the photos, Palmer shared a picture of a quote that read: “I’m a pervert, but in a romantic way.”
The Broadway star joins a string of Hollywood celebrities who have had their nude photos hacked and leaked on the internet.
A victim, Oscar-winning actress Jennifer Lawrence spoke out for the first time in an interview with Vanity Fair against what she called a “sex crime” rather than a “scandal.”
“It is a sexual violation. It’s disgusting. The law needs to be changed, and we need to change. That’s why these websites are responsible. Just the fact that somebody can be sexually exploited and violated, and the first thought that crosses somebody’s mind is to make a profit from it. It’s so beyond me. I just can’t imagine being that detached from humanity. I can’t imagine being that thoughtless and careless and so empty inside,” she said.
Hackers also targeted Kate Upton, Kim Kardashian, Victoria Justice, Vanessa Hudgens, Meagan Good and others.
Rumors blamed a glitch in Apple’s iCloud, but the tech giant came out in defense of its system saying that the problem lied in weak passwords which allowed hackers to tap into the celebrities’ phones.
Lawrence breaks silence, says photo hacking was ‘sex crime’'It is not a scandal. It is a sex crime,' she told Vanity Fair in an interview Entertainment
