Was Jennifer Lawrence part of the fappening nude photo scandal?
For those that don't know, 'The Fappening' is a crude term used to describe an infamous celebrity iCloud hack that took place in 2014. Hundreds of explicit and very private images and sex tapes of famous personalities were leaked to the media and plastered all over the internet, and sadly Jennifer Lawrence was one of the celebrities who was targeted. JLaw met the controversy head on, and was in no way ashamed or apologetic about what had happened. "It's not a scandal, it's a sex crime" she told Vanity Fair. "It's a sexual violation. It's disgusting". The photos of Jennifer that were leaked were intended only for her then boyfriend Nicholas Hoult to see, and actress made it clear than anyone who actively went looking to view her leaked photos was an accomplice in her violation. "The law needs to be changed, and we need to change," Jennifer said of the hack. "That's why these web sites are responsible. Just the fact that somebody can be sexually exploited and violated, and the first thought that crosses somebody's mind is to make a profit from it. It's so beyond me. I just can't imagine being that detached from humanity. I can't imagine being that thoughtless and careless and so empty inside."
