Dozens of celebrities victimized by the still-uncaught Hollywood hacker have banded together for a potential lawsuit against Google.
Because photos of Jennifer Lawrence nude, Kate Upton nude and MANY others nude (such as Gabrielle Union, Meagan Good, Kim Kardashian, Jenny McCarthy, Vanessa Hudgens and Rihanna) still exist on the search engine, attorney Marty Singer has fired off a letter to the Internet behemoth.
It demands the company remove these illegally-obtained images ASAP... or pay a hefty price in court.
In his letter, Singer slams Google for its “despicable, reprehensible conduct in not only failing to act expeditiously and responsibly to remove the Images, but in knowingly accommodating, facilitating and perpetuating the unlawful conduct."
Singer then spells out what this action could cost Google.
“Google is making millions and profiting from the victimization of women,” writes Singer, who on behalf of his clients, feels the company’s “blatantly unethical behavior” could result in damages in excess of $100 million.
Aside from taking down the hacked pictures, Singer wants the search engine giant to penalize sites that have posted the pictures.
"If your wives, daughters or relatives were the victims of such blatant violations of basic human rights, surely you would take appropriate action," he says. "But because the victims are celebrities with valuable publicity rights, you do nothing – nothing but collect millions of dollars in advertising revenue from your co-conspirator advertising partners as you seek to capitalize on the scandal rather than quash it.”
Singer then closes his missive by turning Google's tagline against the company.
“Google’s ‘Don’t be evil’ motto is a sham."
Google is yet to respond to this lawsuit threat.
