Paris Hilton Receives Apology From Hacker Who Posted Her Nude Photos
Cameron Lacroix, the man who hacked into Hilton’s T-Mobile account in 2005 and posted the contacts, emails, and nude photos from her phone online, is now apologizing to her. NBC News sat down with Lacroix and gave him the opportunity to apologize. Check out the video to hear what he had to say!
Back in 2005, a then 16-year-old Lacroix hacked into Hilton’s T-Mobile Sidekick. Now, almost 10 years later, Lacroix is revealing how he managed to hack into her account. Lacroix revealed, “It all started because I wanted a free T-Mobile phone. Once I got in there I realized, ‘Hey, I have access to everybody’s stuff.’ I looked (Paris) up and sure enough it was under her name. I went into it and was shocked at what I saw.”
What did he say in his apology to Hilton? Lacroix looked at the camera and told Hilton, “Paris, I’m sorry I put your information online. I should never have done it, I wouldn’t want it done to me.”
Hilton’s phone wasn’t the only hacking experience for Lacroix, he’s done it numerous times in the past. He was even responsible for hacking Burger King’s Twitter account in Feb. 2013.
After being caught by the FBI, Lacroix was recently sentenced to four years in federal prison. But, it sounds like he’s trying to clean up his act. In the video he talks about helping the FBI with his hacking skills. To hear that story, watch the video above!
