The greatest leak scandal in history is still unfolding as more and more celebrities find themselves involved in this sordid affair, but Jennifer Lawrence maintains the top spot, since her photos were among the first to be leaked and also among the most sought after since Lawrence has become one of the highest ranking actresses in Hollywood at the moment.
More details are beginning to come to light as more people are finding out about the news and desperate efforts are being made to find out the identity of the hacker who leaked the material. So far, all the media knows is that he's a 4Chan user who was hoping to make a quick buck.
Since the leak has hit the web and kicked up a storm in terms of legal responses and public outrage, the so-called hacker has again gone on 4Chan to claim that the material he has leaked was not obtained by “hacking.” Instead, the person calls himself a “collector.”
Because he didn't make nearly as much money as he was hoping on his leak, the hacker now threatened or rather “advertised” the existence of a certain raunchy video featuring Jennifer Lawrence without her clothes on, or at least without her top and that he will send it to anyone willing to pay the fee via PayPal.
“I know no one will believe me, but i have a short lawrence video (sic),” said the leaker, adding “Is way too short, a little over 2 minutes and you only get to see her [explicit]. Anyways, if somebody wants it let me know how i can upload it anonymously (i dont want the FBI over me, and you dont wanna know how I got this video) (sic).”
4Chan is an image-sharing board where all its users can post anonymously and that's why the hacker has chosen to advertise his collection there. Other websites such as Reddit or Imgur have chosen to delete the threads or the posts that were related to the subject, despite the fact they were uploaded several times.
Meanwhile, Twitter has been known to even suspend accounts of people who were trying to promote the material with links or even the photos themselves. This is probably related to the fact that Jennifer's legal camp has threatened to sue everyone and anyone posting the photos, while calling it a “violation of intimacy.”
Some of Jennifer's loyal fans have already condemned this leak as a low blow and sent their best wishes to the actress who has yet to publicly address the issue.
