It’s Not a Scandal, It’s Simply a Sex Crime: Jennifer Lawrence
Hollywood renowned actress Jennifer Lawrence has first broken her silence on leaked celebrity nude photos online. The Oscar winner first time expressed her thoughts on hundreds of leaked nude photos of top celebrities. Lawrence considers it as a sex crime rather than scandal. “It’s not an official scandal, it’s simply a sex crime,” Lawrence said, “It is a kind of sexual violation that should be prevented, it’s really disgusting,” said the Hollywood star.
She further added, “The law must be changed and we all need to alter our perception accordingly. We all are also as much responsible for these acts as illegal websites online”. The 24-year-old Hollywood actress also thinks that everyone who watched these leaked nude videos or photos of celebrities should also change their mindset. On 31st of August, a group of unidentified hackers publicly released the first set of naked celebrity photos on the internet. Hackers allegedly broke into famous accounts, and then stole intimate or private images and videos of hundreds of individuals.
The private photos of Lawrence and several of her colleagues were then distributed to online sources like forum for general public. The famous Hollywood star condemned the act of publishing private photos of celebrities on various online platforms saying, “It’s an illegal act and anyone who stolen as well as published these photos should be prosecuted”. “It’s really frustrating that just because I’m a public figure, I’m an actress, I am not supposed to be liable for such acts. It is my body and I’m responsible for it, anyone irrespective of the position can’t interfere into my personal life in any form,” said Lawrence with great anger.
