Jennifer Lawrence, Kate Upton and Kirsten Dunst are just some of the well known female celebrities who have had their privacy completely taken from them after a hacker leaked nude and indecent photographs of them on the internet.
Now, as threats to post videos of the starlets ensue, writer, actress and self-confessed feminist Lena Dunham has weighed in on the scandal, making a very good point for not looking at the images. You go, Lena.
As described by Kate Upton who, along with Jennifer Lawrence, admitted the photographs in question are real, the ordeal for her has been a 'gross violation' of her privacy; something that we, and Lena, couldn't agree more with.
Taking to Twitter, Lena hit back in support of the victims of the leak. The Girls creator and star was outspoken as usual when she posted: 'The way in which you share your body must be a CHOICE. Support these women and do not look at these pictures'.
Following her initial tweet, the 28-year-old went on to add: 'Remember, when you look at these pictures you are violating these women again and again. It's not okay. Seriously, do not forget that the person who stole these pictures and leaked them is not a hacker: they're a sex offender. The "don't take naked pics if you don't want them online" argument is the "she was wearing a short skirt" of the web. Ugh.'
Well said, Lena. Well said.
We're sure that, for the likes of J-Law and Kirsten, Lena's defence will come as a welcome weigh-in after some note-worthy celebrities have turned their devastating situation into a joke, jabbing fun at the stars.
We don't know about you, but nothing is going to make us look at those images now. Lena, we salute you...
