This past Sunday, a 4chan user posted nude and revealing photos online, supposedly hacked from the iCloud accounts of numerous female celebrities such as Jennifer Lawrence, Kate Upton, Lea Michele and more. While some outlets have reported this leak as a juicy celebrity “scandal,” it’s more accurately described as a sex crime.

So, I guess that there’s this trend going around, and it’s a pretty troubling one in my opinion.
To me, it seems like a pretty dangerous idea for the woman that could be on the receiving end of an angry partner after they receive this message.
My full response to this person:
I get that this is some kind of new internet fad or something for people who like bothering other people, but I want you and anyone else who thinks that this is funny to realize that it could be dangerous in the wrong situation. If you happen to text the wrong person and they have a history of being the horrible shitty kind of person that is a perpetrator of domestic abuse, you could be setting them on their partner like a pack of starved dogs. I don’t know if you were looking for some kind of witty or inflamed response, but I will give you a thoughtful and logical one. I hope you aren’t the kind of person that wouldn’t be phased by the idea that their actions may have just caused a woman to be verbally, mentally, physically abused or even worse.
