Lucy Hale is the latest celebrity to be the victim of a nude photo hack — and she is not apologizing for it!
The Pretty Little Liars star released a statement after a website released topless photos of her in a bed without her consent.
“Well I wasn’t going to comment on something so ridiculous, but since 2017 is gonna be all about speaking my truth… I’m going to say something. Once again, a woman in the public eye was violated, stolen from and her private life and body were exposed for anyone to see,” she wrote on Twitter. “I will not apologize for living my life and having a personal life that is all mine.”

She continued, “It’s truly unfortunate that being exposed in this way is allowed. Thank you for all the sweet, supportive messages I’ve been receiving. It was a much needed reminder that I’m surrounded by so much love.”
The 27-year-old actress’ lawyer has requested the photos be removed from the website, and reportedly threatening to sue for posting the images from her cell phone in the first place.
Lucy recently filmed the last season of her popular Freeform show, and opened up about the life-changing experience on social media.
“While we still have 15 more days of filming , I sit here with a heavy, but extremely full & grateful heart after our official last table read of Pretty Little Liars,” she wrote. “Aside from a murder mystery, mysterious Rosewood, the Hunt for A, and a lot of sketchy characters…the foundation of this show started and ended with friendship. Through it all, these characters stuck by each other’s side. Knowing and working with each of these ladies has left such a huge mark on my life. And I’m not ready to say goodbye.”
She ended her statement with some words to her unknown hacker.
“And to whoever did this… kiss my a–.”
