Bella Thorne recently came forward claiming her photos and videos were hacked and someone was threatening to leak them. She decided to post them herself to regain power.
One person who didn’t approve of her decision was Whoopi Goldberg. Find out what she said on The View and why Thorne called her comments sick and more.
Bella Thorne released her nudes on Twitter due to an alleged hacker
The Duff actress posted a text exchange she had with an alleged hacker threatening to share her private photos and videos. She responded by posting them herself.
“Yesterday as u all know all my sh*t was hacked. For the last 24 hours, I have been threatened with my own nudes. I feel gross, I feel watched. I feel someone has taken something from me that I only wanted one special person to see,” Thorne revealed.
She also claimed, “He has sent me multiple nude photos of other celebs, he won’t stop with me or them he will just keep going.” She added, “For too long I let a man take advantage over and over and I’m f*cking sick of it. I’m putting this out because it’s MY DECISION. NOW U DON’T GET TO TAKE YET ANOTHER THING FROM ME.”
The former Shake It Up actress then talked about why she decided to post them herself instead of waiting to see if this person would do it. “I can sleep tonight better knowing I took my power back. U can’t control my life u never will. Here’s the photos he’s been threatening me with, in other words here’s my boobies. So here, f*ck u and the last 24 hours I have been crying instead of celebrating my book while doing my book press,” she wrote.
Whoopi Goldberg blamed Thorne for taking the photos
Thorne’s situation was a topic on The View. That’s when Goldberg shared her thoughts on the situation.
“If you’re famous, I don’t care how old you are. You don’t take nude pictures of yourself,” said the co-host. She went on to say why she didn’t feel bad for Thorne.
“Once you take that picture it goes into the cloud and it’s available to any hacker who wants it, and if you don’t know that in 2019 that this is an issue, I’m sorry. You don’t get to do that,” she continued.
Thorne responded saying Goldberg blaming girls is sick and disgusting
The Famous in Love star responded to the talk show host in an Instagram story. She wrote her response in the notes app.
“Dear whoopi, I have loved u for so long but honestly I’m so displeased and saddened by your response to my leek [sic]. Blaming girls for taking the photo in the first place? Is sick and honestly disgusting,” started the statement according to People.
It continues with, “So what a girl can’t send her boyfriend that she misses photos of her that are sexy? Things he’s already seen? I as a women [sic] should be so scared walking around my home, being on my phone, doing anything? Is that what u want our women to be like? Scared of the masses for their sexuality?? Is that what u want?”
She then wrote, “I don’t. I’m offended for anyone out there who has ever taken a sexy photo. I am offended for Jennifer Lawrence who feels publicly raped. I am offended for every person who has committed suicide for someone leaking their nudes. Ur view on this matter is honestly awful and I hope u change ur mind set as u are on a show talking to young girls.”
Goldberg has yet to respond to Thorne’s statement. Many of the Thorne’s fans are also on social media defending her.
