The latest news in celebrity scandals is here with nude celebrity photos and videos brought to you daily by Islamic extremists. This controversial move has rocked the entertainment industry, sparking debates of morality across the globe.
For some this is a morbidly curious way of discovering what their favorite celebs look like without clothes, but for many this is an unethical use of technology that exploits women by exposing them without their permission. The leaked images provide an unbelievable insight into the lives of our favorite stars, from uncomfortably personal messages to private moments caught on camera. But how did they get leaked in the first place?
Islamic extremists are thought to be behind these hacks, using computer viruses and malware as tools to gain access to celebrities’ computers and mobile phones. Surprisingly, most hacked images have nothing to do with religious dogma or political beliefs – instead, they were chosen for their shock value and ability to generate discussion about moral values.
Reactions among fans range between outrage over perpetrators’ gross invasion of privacy and excitement over new images of attractive celebrities in compromising positions. Unfortunately this level of controversy does ensure attention in both mainstream media as well as social media circles across the world wide web.
Celebrities often respond with strong standpoints when these types of events unfold, denouncing Islamic extremists responsible for the hack while simultaneously warning (or suing) any outlets that run the illicit materials. Many have spoken out about what cyber-nudity can do to one’s reputation, career prospects and social standing, once word gets out that compromising photos are spreading online like wild fire.
There seems little hope that these attacks will end any time soon; if anything we can expect more targeted hacks as Islamic extremists ramp up their efforts towards generating conversation around moral issues linked to owning intimate media content illegally. Until then we wait with bated breath for further releases…
