An anonymous hacker has struck again and this time more Black actresses were the victims. A week or so ago, an anonymous hacker released a series of photos of celebrity women including Oscar winner Jennifer Lawrence, actress/model Kate Upton and several other actresses and athletes. Singer/actress Jill Scott was one of them, although she later said that one of the photos wasn’t her.
In this latest hack, uploaded as the first ones were, to the website 4chan, which is known as a hangout for hackers and various web subcultures, nude photos reportedly taken by Gabrielle Union, Meagan Good and Rihanna were posted online.
As Rihanna has been hacked in the past and has taken naked photos and posted them online herself (leading to her being banned from Instagram) she didn’t release any statement, but recently married Union responded by reporting the violation to the FBI. She and husband Dwyane Wade released a joint statement to TMZ.
“It has come to our attention that our private moments, that were shared and deleted solely between my husband and myself, have been leaked by some vultures.
“I can’t help but to be reminded that since the dawn of time women and children, specifically women of color, have been victimized, and the power over their own bodies taken from them. These atrocities against women and children continue worldwide.
“For anyone out there also being affected by these and other hacking and hate crimes – We send our love, support and prayers. We have done nothing wrong.”
Good took to Instagram to post a response, saying those who reposted the photos should be ashamed of themselves.
Oh yeah, some Kim Kardashian nudes hit the web, as well. So far, she hasn’t responded.
