Celebrities are speaking out in support of Bella Thorne after nude photo leak
Disney actress Bella Thorne has had her hand forced by hackers, and over the course of the last week decided to leak nude images of herself to the internet after her private and x-rated photos of herself were obtained by criminals.
Taking to Twitter, Thorne posted the images to her own social media accounts, writing: "F**k u and the power u think you have over me. I’m gonna write about this in my next book. [sic]"
However, the actress was criticised by Whoopi Goldberg, who stated that Thorne herself bears some of the responsibility for the incident herself. Goldberg said: "If you’re famous, I don’t care how old you are. You don’t take nude pictures of yourself."
You can check out Thorne's response to Goldberg's comments in the video below:
Thorne was saddened and shamed by the 63-year-old comments. But it appears as though many other celebrities have now rallied around her. On Instagram, Thorne uploaded screenshots of supportive messages she received from vlogger Logan Paul, Madison Beer, and Dove Cameron.
For example, Logan Paul wrote: "I saw your post about your nudes and felt empathetic, THEN I saw that post where you were talking about being molested and paparazzi when you were young and felt more EMPATHETIC and you’re a real bad bitch. Like you’re a f*cking badass. [sic]"
Meanwhile, Dove Cameron wrote: "Where is the support for young women. I love women. Everyone should love women. Don’t be an asshole! Sexuality is part of being HUMAN. But judgement and objectification is not. Ugh, I can’t handle to ugly. [sic]"
Madison Beer added: "Why aren’t we talking about the men who betrayed our trust and humiliated us? Why aren’t we saying shame on them for doing something so nasty and mean? We clearly trust those we send anything risky to as people in the public so thank you for saying this."
In another Instagram post, Thorne also revealed that fellow former Disney star Zendaya called her to make sure the actress "was okay".
Bella herself has now spoken out about Whoopi Goldberg's response to the scandal, calling The View panellist 'disgusting.'
