Jennifer Lawrence spoke out for the first time yesterday on the naked photo scandal that affected her and several other celebrities at the end of August to Vanity Fair – and just as her widely-praised comments were published, hackers continued their abhorent attack on the actress by invading her Wikipedia page and changed the main featured image to one of the nudes.
Her page is ‘semi-protected’, meaning only registered members of Wikipedia are able to make alterations to its content – including the images.
It appears as though the culprit putting the explicit snaps in prime position was a ‘sock puppet’; a clueless user posing as a seasoned pro. They uploaded one nude photo late last night, replacing the existing one of the Hunger Games actress at Comic Con last year.
It was swiftly deleted just fourteen minutes later, but the sock puppet struck again very soon after. The second attempt was deleted after four minutes, and it seems to be business as usual on the page now with the
Comic Con pic back in the Featured position.
The pathetic hacking attempt did nothing, really, except strengthen what J-Law had said in her Vanity Fair interview. “It is not a scandal. It is a sex crime,” she had said. “It is a sexual violation. It’s disgusting. The law needs to be changed, and we need to change.
“That’s why these websites are responsible. Just the fact that somebody can be sexually exploited and violated, and the first thought
that crosses somebody’s mind is to make a profit from it. It’s so beyond me. I just can’t imagine being that detached from humanity. I can’t imagine being that thoughtless and
careless and so empty inside.”
She added: “Anybody who looked at those pictures, you’re perpetuating a sexual offense. You should cower with shame. Even people who I know and love say, ‘Oh, yeah, I looked at the pictures.’ I don’t want to get mad, but at the same time I’m thinking, I didn’t tell you that you could look at my
Explaining why the pictures were taken (not that she needed to), she said that she was originally going to publish an apology, before realising “I don’t have anything to say I’m sorry for. I was in a loving, healthy, great
relationship for four years. It was long
distance, and either your boyfriend is going to look at porn or he’s going to look at you.”
And it’s back to business now for the star, who is promoting The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 1 up to its release next month.
