Reddit is stepping up to try and curtail the recent celebrity photo hacking scandal, shutting down the area of the site where the stolen pics have been posted.
Get ready to bid a final farewell to The Fappening, hornballs.
Two Sundays ago, a hacker or hackers posted massive amounts of hacked photos of, among others, Kate Upton and Jennifer Lawrence nude.
Reddit and 4Chan have been ground zero for what has come to be known as The Fappening, for obvious reasons. But the former is now caving.
The online forum vaguely says this violate its policies. How?
It's far from clear, but alleged underage photos of McKayla Maroney posted to The Fappening sub-reddit would legally be the most radioactive material.
Hearing from attorneys representing Jennifer Lawrence, Kate Upton, Victoria Justice, Selena Gomez and countless others can't be a fun prospect, either.
The site says in its decision to shut down the stolen pictures:
"While current U.S. law does not prohibit linking to stolen materials, we deplore the theft of these images and we do not condone their widespread distribution."
The guy who started The Fap says he's not pleased about this, but at the end of the day, the images are blatantly stolen and Reddit has to look out for Reddit.
Bottom line: If you're not happy about this and want to change the outcome ... go buy Photoshop and create your own fake Ariana Grande nude pics.
No one can ever take those away from you.
