Following news that personal nude photos had been stolen from the private accounts of as many as 101 female celebrities including Jennifer Lawrence and Kate Upton, fellow stars came out on Twitter to voice their support for these ladies, and their disgust at the people passing them around online.
Except Rickey Gervais, who had this to say:
He quickly deleted the tweet, but not before some saw it, and called him out on his remark.
So he tried to defend what he wrote:
Making a joke about a thing doesn't mean you condone that thing.— Ricky Gervais (@rickygervais) September 1, 2014
And, again, got rightfully called out:
See what some other, more sympathetic, celebs had to say below.
The way in which you share your body must be a CHOICE. Support these women and do not look at these pictures.— Lena Dunham (@lenadunham) September 1, 2014
Remember, when you look at these pictures you are violating these women again and again. It's not okay.— Lena Dunham (@lenadunham) September 1, 2014
Seriously, do not forget that the person who stole these pictures and leaked them is not a hacker: they're a sex offender.— Lena Dunham (@lenadunham) September 1, 2014
The "don't take naked pics if you don't want them online" argument is the "she was wearing a short skirt" of the web. Ugh.— Lena Dunham (@lenadunham) September 1, 2014
To those of you looking at photos I took with my husband years ago in the privacy of our home, hope you feel great about yourselves.— Mary E. Winstead (@M_E_Winstead) August 31, 2014
Knowing those photos were deleted long ago, I can only imagine the creepy effort that went into this. Feeling for everyone who got hacked.— Mary E. Winstead (@M_E_Winstead) August 31, 2014
You know what's better then leaked nudes? Earning the trust & respect of another human to the point that they share their body with you.— Susan Burke (@ThatSusanBurke) August 31, 2014
Posting pics hacked from someone's cell phone is really no different than selling stolen merchandise.— Seth Rogen (@Sethrogen) August 31, 2014
I obviously am not comparing women to merchandise. Just legally speaking, it shouldn't be tolerated to repost stolen pics.— Seth Rogen (@Sethrogen) August 31, 2014
These so called nudes of me are FAKE people. Let me nip this in the bud right now. *pun intended*— Victoria Justice (@VictoriaJustice) August 31, 2014
