Victoria: I Was Hacked
Victoria Justice admits to having her photos hacked.
Downton Abbey actress Jessica Brown Findlay is the latest celebrity to confirm that she has been a victim of the massive celebrity nudes leak over the weekend.

Lawyers for the British actress has released a statement on the matter saying that the massive invasion of privacy, in which the likes of Jennifer Lawrence, Kate Upton, Victoria Justice and Kirsten Dunst were also affected, has caused “extreme distress and embarrassment” for Brown Findlay.

Her attorneys, Schillings Solicitors, continue: “Any publication of the photographs (pixilated or otherwise) or the video or any reference to them will perpetuate this distress and further the serious violation of our client’s rights in relation to her privacy.”

Reports suggests that naked photos and a 54-second video of the actress allegedly engaging in an explicit act were taken from her iCloud data and posted online without her permission. The NSFW clip was visible on Google’s front page for “Jessica Brown Findlay” for eight hours before the search engines removed it from its top results.

The hacked celebrity nudes scandal first hit the internet when a 4chan poster tried to sell said stolen material for bitcoin. According to a list shared on the website, over 100 female celebrities were targeted.
