Lena Dunham on nude 4Chan photo leaks: 'Hackers are sex offenders'

'The 'don't take naked pics if you don't want them online' argument is the 'she was wearing a short skirt' of the web. Ugh' the Girls creator tweeted

Lena Dunham has branded the hackers behind the leak of hundreds of intimate celebrity photographs "sex offenders".

"The way in which you share your body must be a CHOICE. Support these women and do not look at these pictures," the Girls creator and star tweeted.

"Remember, when you look at these pictures you are violating these women again and again. It's not okay."

She added: "The 'don't take naked pics if you don't want them online' argument is the 'she was wearing a short skirt' of the web. Ugh."

Emma Watson also took to Twitter to voice her condemnation of the breech.

"Even worse than seeing women's privacy violated on social media is reading the accompanying comments that show such a lack of empathy," she wrote.

The FBI and Apple are both conducting investigations into the apparent widespread hacking of celebrities’ personal accounts thought to be connected to the iCloud service, leading to the leaking of naked images of 101 actors, singers, models and presenters.

Among others the list includes  Jessica Brown FindlayMary E Winstead, Rihanna, Kim Kardashian, Mary Kate Olsen, Cara Delevingne, Kate Bosworth, Selena Gomez, Vanessa Hudgens, Kate Upton, Kirsten Dunst and Kaley Cuoco.

Justice and Grande have both said that the pictures are fake, although Lawrence’s spokesperson verified their authenticity.

Meanwhile, representatives for Upton said they were “looking into” the authenticity of the indecent images.

The 4Chan hacker behind the leak has since claimed to have a video of the actress performing a lewd sex act.

The anonymous person also admitted that they were unhappy with how much money he or she has made from circulating the stolen photographs.
