Celebrity picture scandal
« on: September 01, 2014, 10:08:07 AM »
I, uh, wasn't sure where this should go, if it should go anywhere at all. It's a pretty serious thing depending on who you ask and I figured it's worth talking about.

If you've been paying any attention to /b/ or specific subreddits, then you would have noticed that over the course of the last day some dude has been leaking heaps of nude pics of celebrities. Users on /b/ have largely responded by asking for more and giving the guy money through bitcoin, some of the celebrity subreddits have been heavily moderated and the whole scandal removed from /r/all. Despite this, a new subreddit was created for the sole purpose of sharing the images, and the guy continues making promises on /b/. It's apparent that he has a lot more content left, although no one knows how he got such a large bank of personal images (most people seem to think he got them from iCloud somehow) or how much longer before he gets caught.

Obviously I'm not going to post any pictures here because they're all pretty explicit. The whole thing strikes me as very creepy, but I'm not surprised this could happen given the naivety of these girls. Taking nude pics and allowing them to be put on the cloud is not a smart move, at all.

It could be, he's just very good at photoshop and sticks celeb heads on pornstar bodies. If people are giving him money for this, the motive is obvious.

There's a lot of images, some very clearly show the face of the girls involved.

I wouldn't be interested in this kind of low res smut.

He could still be very good at photo shopping.
If you are going to DebOOonK an expert then you have to at least provide a source with credentials of equal or greater relevance. Even then, it merely shows that some experts disagree with each other.

Jennifer Lawrence for one has confirmed that the pictures of her are genuine.  I'm not sure about anyone else.

Then it would look like shit, obviously.

I researched the topic and can confirm the images are not low res nor appear to be photoshopped.

If there's not any naked dudes then I don't care.

But seriously, I feel bad for all celebrities because they always have to be careful about their privacy. If they're uploading nudes to the cloud then lesson learned, I guess. It sucks but it's a part of the ugly nature of star worship. I may be a perv for sexy actors but I wouldn't intrude on their privacy or pay for anyone to do it. Even seeing candid paparazzi pictures makes me feel icky.

It should be common knowledge by now that if your storage for nudes is connected to the internet then it isn't perfectly safe.  Apparently Mary Elizabeth Winstead has said the pictures of her were taken and deleted some time ago, so the person who grabbed these pics did some serious perving.

Or they were on iCloud.

/r/thefappening now has a thread promoting donations for prostate cancer. It would be nice to see some good come out of this.
