The Hollywood hacker has struck again.
Naked photos of Hayden Panettiere (Heroes, Nashville) have surfaced on platforms such as Reddit and 4chan, with the actress now joining the likes of Vanessa Hudgens and Kim Kardashian as female celebrities who have been victimized by some loser hacker.
Nude images of latter two also hit the Internet today.
Panettiere, Hudgens and Kardashian now join a list of violated actresses, singers athletes and models that include Hope Solo, Kirsten Dunst, Kaley Cuoco-Sweeting and many others.
The FBI is in the middle of an investigation, but the agency clearly has not yet found the hacker at the center of this controversy.
Many other celebrities and bloggers have been calling upon individuals to NOT look at these lewd photographs in order to grant the subjects their deserved privacy.
The Hollywood Gossip fully agrees with this policy and will not be posting the Hayden Panettiere naked pictures.
Controversially, Clay Aiken has told The Washington Post that "anybody who takes inappropriate pictures of themselves deserves exactly what they get."
He did add, however:
"Of course whoever [stole and released the photos] should be hogtied. And it's unfortunate that we don't have Internet security right now or the laws in place to protect people from pirating that stuff."
