In a series of videos and in tears, Bella Thorne scolded Whoopi Goldberg on Tuesday after the host of “The View” criticized her for taking intimate photos of herself.
Goldberg said the actress should have known that the hackers would have access to the nude photos she had taken.
“Once you take that picture, it goes into the cloud and is available to any hacker who wants it,” Goldberg said in the program. “And if you do not know that in 2019 this is a problem, I’m sorry, your age is not … you can not do that.”
“What a shame,” Thorne replied. “I do not want to continue with ‘The View’ because I do not want to be attacked by a group of older women because of my body and my sexuality.”
Thorne shared on Twitter on Saturday photos of her nude after he said a hacker threatened to reveal them.
Sunny Hostin, another host on “The View,” empathized with Thorne.
“It just saddens me that these young people have to go through this,” Hostin said on the show. “It’s terrible that someone extorts and threatens to publish these photos.”
But Goldberg was less understanding.
“If you’re famous, I do not care how old you are, just do not take nude photos,” Goldberg said.
Hostin said that those photos are generally intended for one person only.
“Listen, when they hack you, they’re hacking all your stuff, be it an image or a million images,” Goldberg replied.
The annoyance of Thorne
“Watching this interview made me feel very bad about myself,” Thorne said on Tuesday in his videos.
bad about myself,” Thorne said on Tuesday in his videos.
He said he would cancel an upcoming presentation in the program.
“I really do not want you to tell your views to young girls because I would not want my daughter to learn that and I would never say that to her,” Thorne said.
“What a shame, Whoopi … to express that public opinion in that way so that all young girls think they are disgusting even for just taking a picture like that. What a shame, “said Thorne. “Say that if you take a sexy picture, then it basically deserves to be filtered and it should not surprise you and you should feel sorry for yourself.”
Thorne is the latest celebrity whose privacy has been violated as a result of online piracy. Several years ago, a lot of famous women, like Jennifer Lawrence, Aubrey Plaza, and Kate Upton, suffered the hacking of private photos that were shared online.
