Celebgate returns: New leaked photos of Jennifer Lawrence and Kim Kardashian spread on 4chan
Kaley Cuoco, Avril Lavigne, Aubrey Plaza, and Lake Bell are also allegedly part of the leak.
Images began appearing on 4chan Saturday morning. According to Uproxx, many were removed due to the site’s new policy on copyright infringement, but threads full of X-rated photos continued to spread throughout the day. Moderators on 4chan are now playing a game of Whack-a-Mole, trying to prune or delete old threads while new ones continue to pop up.
The leaked content isn’t all X-rated. 4chan users are also sharing video of Jennifer Lawrence laughing with ex-boyfriend Nicholas Hoult.
Reddit had previously banned the subreddit r/TheFappening, which was dedicated to Celebgate, but multiple new forums have popped up to host the new rash of stolen pictures. On one subreddit, users link to photos and albums under the guise of a “discussion” about Celebgate.
Photos allegedly depicting gymnast McKayla Maroney are also spreading on 4chan. Weeks earlier, on r/TheFappening, moderators announced a ban on images of Maroney, saying they were taken when she was underage.
Other celebrities said to be targeted in the latest leak include Vanessa Hudgens, U.S. soccer goalie Hope Solo, Aubrey Plaza, Hayden Panettiere, Leelee Sobieski, and Lake Bell. It’s not clear, however, if any of the images are authentic.
The new batch of photos is likely tied to the original hacking that saw numerous nudes of celebrities obtained illegally and distrubuted via 4chan and other social media earlier this month. The FBI is currently investigating the original hacking.
