Subscriber Account active since. Bella Thorne decided to take matters into her own hands when a hacker threatened to release her nude photos. But when Whoopi Goldberg tried to make her feel bad about it, she went onto Instagram to criticize her right back. On June 15, rather than let the hacker win, she posted very not safe for work screenshots of their conversation on Twitter. Read more : Bella Thorne posted nude photos of herself on Twitter after a hacker allegedly threatened to leak them. So whether it's one picture or a million pictures, once you take that picture, it goes into the cloud and it's available to any hacker who wants it. You don't get to do that. After listening to Goldberg's comments, Thorne took to Instagram to post a photo on her story with the caption "I was supposed to go on The View but honestly I don't feel like being beaten down by a bunch of older women. In a long text post, Thorne wrote that she has loved Whoopi so for "so long" but was "displeased and saddened" by her responde. Is sick and honestly disgusting," she said.
Actress Bella Thorne says actress and presenter Whoopi Goldberg's comments about taking naked selfies are "disgusting". Her comments came after Bella shared naked photos online, because a hacker was threatening to make them public. The actress cried because she said she was upset over the impact that having naked photos leaked might have on more vulnerable people. She said she was due to go on The View but didn't "feel like being beaten down by a bunch of older women". Bella told fans on the weekend that her accounts had been compromised and she was hitting back by releasing private photos before hackers could. In , a number of celebrities had naked photos stolen and leaked online. The event was nicknamed "The Fappening". Earlier this year, a woman told the BBC about what happened when naked photos of her were stolen and shared online. Lives are being torn apart by this. And a victims' group earlier this year said that UK laws aren't doing enough to protect victims of revenge porn here.
Who Is Joe Alwyn? Earlier this week, Bella Thorne took a brave stance to regain power after a traumatising case of sex abuse. Blackmailed by a hacker who had stolen private nude pictures from her phone, Bella chose to release the pictures herself, relinquishing any power the sex criminal had over her stating 'you don't get to take yet another thing from me'. The logic is baffling, and Bella herself has compared it to blaming women when they are raped by contributing to a culture where women are the ones held accountable for sex crimes.
Is that what you want women to be like, scared of the masses for their sexuality? Her sentiment has been shared by many online, with celebrities from Zendaya, Lucy Hale and Serayah all privately messaging Bella to share their support. Megan highlights an important point when it comes to victim-blaming. People are still clearly so quick to blame the victim when it comes to a sex crime, where you would never think to do so in any non-sexual attempt at online or offline offence.
Because, responses like this are the reason that these crimes have so much power. We live in a world where women are forced to repress their sexuality, and Bella was one of very few women in the public eye that refused to by shy about hers. So regardless of your personal choice, Whoopi, this is not the view we need to hear.
