This incident was by far, the most significant nude celeb photo scandal in the history of mankind. On April 11th, 2017, hackers released the second wave of private photos.Never before were so many images of so many celebrities simultaneously revealed and shared on every corner of the internet. Many questions were raised about online privacy and the inherent right of women to safely take nude selfies in this digital age. This time notable celebs involved were Miley Cyrus, Rosario Dawson, Dianna Agron, Yvonne Strahovski, Kate Hudson and Audrina Patridge.Three key events have resulted in an avalanche of nudes.

And several random Instagram models that nobody ever heard of.

It’s plausible to think that some of these chicks had their photos ‘leaked’ on purpose for publicity although we can’t really be sure.

Some of the notable celebs hacked were Jennifer Lawrence, Kate Upton, Kirsten Dunst, Emily Ratajkowski, Kelly Brook, Hope Solo, Kaley Cuoco and Victoria Justice.

A group of different hackers was responsible for the leak, but so far only a few were caught and sentenced.

The first is of her own volition by appearing naked in photoshoots, movies, TV shows and other related media.

She decides the extent of what she wants to reveal.

Collins was eventually caught and sentenced to 18 months in prison.

Another guy named Edward Majerczyk got nine months in prison for hacking 30 celebrity i Cloud accounts. On March 14th 2017, private photos of Amanda Seyfried and Emma Watson were leaked online. Like the previous leak, they were first posted in 4chan and then found their ways to various other websites.

The second involves a bit of luck and hard working paparazzi – social media ‘accidents’ where a tweet, gram or snap was wrongly shared, topless beach photos and public wardrobe malfunctions () The third is private photos and sex tapes leaked by hackers, ex-lovers or the celebrity herself for lolz/revenge/money/fame.

Of the three, leaked celebrity photos are by far, the most fascinating.

It is believed that several other individuals hacked into i Cloud accounts as well. A few days after, photos of other lesser known celebrities started to surface on the internet.
