A spokesperson for Lawrence said: ”This is a flagrant violation of privacy.The authorities have been contacted and will prosecute anyone who posts the stolen photos of Jennifer Lawrence.“The anonymous hacker has complained about the moneyreceived for the images."People wanted s*** for free.“I feel like I got gang-banged by the f***ing planet - like, there’s not one person in the world that is not capable of seeing these intimate photos of me,” she said.

Anyone who offends the 4chan community or other cheerleaders for the out-of-control internet can expect revenge attacks.
