If your phone was hacked, would there be any embarrassing pictures there to steal?
Last week, a thread was started on 4chan by a poster claiming to be a hacker in possession of celebrity nude photos. The poster claimed the images were acquired through hacking various celebrities' phones and electronics, and said they would be leaked on Sunday, 8/31.
As promised, on Sunday, images of partial and fully nude celebrities such as Jennifer Lawrence and Kate Upton were posted at 4chan. An angry Lawrence confirmed the pictures were authentic by releasing a statement saying she would prosecute the offender(s) if they were caught. Publicity of the scandal continues, although no one has been charged with the crime.
Twitter users found some humor in the incident, which launched the hashtag #IfMyPhoneGotHacked. The Twitter comedy brigade joined in the fun wholeheartedly. Shown here are a few of their posts. See the rest at Uproxx.
