The 4Chan nude photo scandal has made headlines the past few weeks. With so many celebrities being targeted, the list just keeps growing. Anna Kendrick is the latest victim, according to WebProNews on Sept. 29.
Kendrick’s private photos turned up on 4Chan and Reddit this past weekend. The pictures showed her smoking and she seemed to be playing dress up. Unlike several other celebrities photos, Anna was full clothed in all 87 pictures.
Last month, the Twilight star joked about the possibility of being hacked when the 4Chan nude photo scandal first made headlines. Mike Kendrick, Anna’s brother send the actress a text message that he was glad her name was not on the 4Chan nude photo list. The actress shared her response to Mike on Twitter,
“Don’t worry bro, it would just be photos of food and other people’s dogs anyway.”
Anna spoke to the Toronto Sun about why nobody would ever see racy photos of her. She said that she is paranoid and for good reason. She stated,
“I’m paranoid, and with good reason, clearly, as we’ve learned from the last couple of weeks. It certainly makes me sad for the girls who were affected, and bummed out that people won’t be able to do that stuff, because it’s a part of life and if you want to you should be able to.”
Friday’s 4Chan nude photo leak, given the name The Fappening 3, allegedly included pictures of model Cara Delevnigne and “The Hunger Games” actress Jennifer Lawrence. Actresses Lauren O’Neil, Kelli Garner and soap opera star Alexandra Chandro along with TV presenter Brook Burns and Olympic gold medalist Misty May-Treanor have also been targeted in the 4Chan nude photo scandal.
The first batch of the 4Chan nude photos were leaked in September. Last weekend more celebrities besides Anna Kendrick were part of the leak. Those include Gabrielle Union, Hayden Panettiere, Rihanna and Kim Kardashian to name a few.
The FBI is currently working with Apple to find out who is responsible for the 4Chan nude photos leaks. Apple revealed shortly after the first batch of photos were released that the hackers accessed celebrities accounts by “phishing” in order to get their passwords. Phishing is acting like someone who has forgotten their username and password.
Hopefully the 4Chan nude photo scandal will be over soon and the people responsible will be found.
