In a Vanity Fair interview published today, Jennifer Lawrence opened up about the photo hacking scandal that’s impacted hundreds of Hollywood starlets.
Possibly in response to Lawrence’s scathing indictment of the parties responsible for the widespread theft, Lawrence’s Wikipedia page was hacked today.
Her main photo was replaced with an alternating pair of explicit pics.
Lawrence’s page is “semi-protected,” meaning that only registered Wikipedia users can edit it, but hackers may have circumvented those safeguards.
Someone clearly found a way to post changes not approved by administrators.
The Nude photos of Jennifer Lawrence first surfaced online in late August, signaling the start of a flood of private photos stolen from the accounts of A-list celebrities.
Kate Upton, Kim Kardashian, and Kaley Cuoco were among those victimized, with countless other celebs and their revealing pics leaked in the coming weeks.
Lawrence’s remarks to Vanity Fair constituted her first public comments on the scandal, and suffice it to say she is not happy about how this went down.
“I was just so afraid,” Lawrence said.
“I didn’t know how this would affect my career. Just because I’m a public figure, just because I’m an actress, does not mean that I asked for this.”
“It’s my body and it should be my choice, and the fact that it is not my choice is absolutely disgusting.”
Jennifer added that she was in a long-distance relationship at the time and “he’s either going to look at porn or he’s going to look at you.”
In the weeks since the photos were first posted online, several female stars have been subjected to ugly verbal attacks as a result of speaking out against the hacking.
In late September, actress Emma Watson was threatened with a nude photo leak after delivering a speech on women’s rights at the UN.
Lawrence has yet to comment on this latest violation. The photos were removed by Wikipedia shortly after they were posted.
