By now, you’ve heard about the nude leaks of dozens of celebrities. Everyone from Emma Watson to Kirsten Dunst has reacted in regards to nude photos being spread around the internet due to a breach of privacy in Apple’s systems. Now, a pair of Glee actresses are speaking out after the scandal has compromised their privacy.
Becca Tobin from Glee is a victim of the nude photo hack, and now she has issued a response that’s quite comical in comparison to the other statements already issued.
Tobin wrote on her Twitter account in response to the leaks:

This, of course, is a colorful way of reacting to the nudes. Tobin’s photos featured the actress dressing up a Christmas tree in the nude.
Glee co-star Matthew Morrison tweeted back at Tobin in solidarity.
@becbecbobec craziness! Way to embrace it Hun!

Another Glee star has been rocked by the nude photos. Melissa Benoist also has had to deal with the fallout from having private photos hacked and released.
Benoist took another approach by tweeting out a link from a Ted Talk by Sally Kohn. In the Ted Talk, Kohn talks about link bait.
The description of the video advertised by the Glee star says:
“Doesn’t it seem like a lot of online news sites have moved beyond reporting the news to openly inciting your outrage (and your page views)? News analyst Sally Kohn suggests — don’t engage with news that looks like it just wants to make you mad. Instead, give your precious clicks to the news sites you truly trust.”
As we reported, a hacker from 4Chan leaked private photos and videos over the weekend of celebrities including Aubrey Plaza, Lea Michele, Hillary Duff, Victoria Justice, Jennifer Lawrence, Vanessa Hudgens, and Kate Bosworth.
Lawrence’s rep confirmed that this was a serious issue and not a hoax by immediately responding to the leak on behalf of the Academy Award winning actress.
“This is a flagrant violation of privacy. The authorities have been contacted and will prosecute anyone who posts the stolen photos of Jennifer Lawrence.”
The lead hacker in this ring, known as “OriginalGuy,” had to move his location so he wouldn’t be found by the FBI, while the agency considers how to proceed.
The FBI made a statement in regards to the situation.
“The FBI is aware of the allegations concerning computer intrusions and the unlawful release of material involving high-profile individuals, and is addressing the matter.”
