Keke Palmer, talk show host and star of Broadway’s Cinderella, has become the latest victim of the celebrity nude photo hacks that have affected the lives of several Hollywood starlets, reports Bustle.
Reportedly, in the leaked photos, 21-year-old Palmer is fully dressed in some, partially dressed in others. Some of the topless photos of Palmer that have been posted online clearly show the young stars piercings and tattoos. It has yet to be confirmed if these photos of Palmer are legit or photoshopped.
Palmer is best known for her time on Nickelodeon on the show Tru Jackson. Keke Palmer received accolades for her role in Akeelah and the Bee, which starred Laurence Fishburne. Palmer also starred in the popular Nickelodeon movie Rags, also starring Max Schneider.
Palmer seemed to ignore the situation once it hit mass media. While the story circulated, Palmer posted a selfie on Instagram. Palmer also shared a quote, “I’m a pervert, but in a romantic way.”
Rumors circulated that an Apple iCloud glitch allowed the hacking, but Apple defends its system. Apple says weak passwords are what allowed hackers to be able to invade celebrities phones.
As The Root reports, Palmer joins a growing list of celebrities who have been victims of phone hacking. Oscar-winning actress Jennifer Lawrence, Kate Upton, Victoria Justice, Kim Kardashian, Vanessa Hudges, and Megan Good are among those whose privacy has been invaded. Around 75 celebrities have been involved in these hackings.
Jennifer Lawrence is one of the celebrities who fought back.
“It is not a scandal. It is a sex crime. It is a sexual violation. It’s disgusting. The law needs to be changed, and we need to change. That’s why these websites 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,” Lawrence told Vanity Fair.
Palmer is currently on Broadway starring in Cinderella, where she has become the first African-American Cinderella.
Around a half of a dozen photos of Palmer were leaked. These photos show Palmer in several different stages of nudity. The photos include an embarrassing photo of Palmer sitting naked on a toilet.
The Fappening, as the media has labeled this fiasco, seems to have no end in sight. Fans are still waiting for Palmer to say whether the photos are authentic.
