Emma Watson Responds To Nude Photos Hacking Scandal: What Other Celebs Are Saying

Emma Watson wasn’t one of the celebrity victims of the photo hacker (or hackers) who recently leaked hundreds of nude photos on the web, but the Harry Potter star did have something to say about the internet’s response to the scandal.

The celebrity phone hacking scandal has affected over a dozen celebrities. Jennifer Lawrence, Kate Upton, Kirsten Dunst, Becca Tobin, and Mary Elizabeth Winstead bravely admitted that their leaked nude photos are the real deal. Meanwhile, McKayla Maroney, Victoria Justice, and Ariana Grande were quick to tweet that their alleged nude photos are fakes.

Fake or not, all of the celebrity women whose names were dragged into this scandal found themselves targeted by internet trolls who were quick to judge and condemn them. They were slut-shamed; they were accused of being stupid; and they had their bodies critiqued by creeps. However, Emma Watson was quick to let her millions of fans know exactly how she feels about victim-blaming behavior.

Emma Watson can definitely empathize with these women — after all, she’s sort of been in their shoes before. According to Marie Claire, Watson threatened to take legal action in 2010 after fake nude photos featuring her face began circulating on the web. She knows how it feels to be reduced to nothing but a sexual object by icky internet pervs. Emma Watson wasn’t the only celebrity who lashed out at the reaction to the hacking. Patricia Arquette had plenty to say about those making light of the nude photo leak.

Lena Dunham’s feelings were similar to Patricia’s.

Chrissy Teigen also said something similar, and she got in a minor Twitter tiff with the unsympathetic trolls that Emma Watson was talking about in her tweet.

Comedian Ricky Gervais didn’t heed Emma Watson’s call to respond to the scandal with empathy. Instead, he tweeted and deleted a comment criticizing the celebrities who were targeted by the hacker.

Victim Kirsten Dunst chose to blame iCloud. According to TIME, one theory is that hackers gained access to the nude photos using a vulnerability in Apple iCloud’s “Find My iPhone” service. Dunst thinks that the Cloud is nothing but pizza poo.

Glee star Becca Tobin also chose to respond to her nude leaked photos in a more humorous fashion. According to Popcrush, one of Tobin’s pics features her decorating a Christmas tree naked.

True Detective actress Alexandra Daddario wasn’t a victim of the hacker, but she let everyone know where they can see her naked.

Chrissy Teigen also shared a few funny tweets before engaging with the trolls. She just couldn’t resist retweeting an old joke about nude photos.

Anna Kendrick shared her brother’s response to seeing the lengthy list of celebrities who were targeted by the hacker.

And Tom Arnold helpfully offered a solution for making sure that “The Fappening” doesn’t ever happen again.

Do you share Emma Watson’s sentiment that the celebrity victims of the hacker aren’t getting enough sympathy?
