Lucy Hale is the latest actress to fall victim to a nude photo leak and had a few choice words for the unidentified perpetrator.
“Well, I wasn’t going to comment on something so ridiculous, but since 2017 is gonna be all about speaking my truth,” the “Pretty Little Liars” actress started her message, “To whoever did this … kiss my ass.”
Porn site Celeb Jihad reportedly posted two topless selfies of the 27-year-old in bed on Wednesday that were stolen from her phone. According to TMZ, Hale maintains that the photos were meant for a friend.
Following the leak, the “Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants” star took to her Twitter account to speak out about the incident.
“Once again, a woman in the public eye was violated, stolen from and her private life and body were exposed for anyone to see,” the actress wrote. “I will not apologize for living my life and having a personal life that is all mine. It’s truly unfortunate that being exposed in this way is allowed.”
Hale went on to express gratitude to those who have stood by her during this time.
“Thank you for all the sweet, supportive message I’ve been receiving. It was a much needed reminder that I’m surrounded by so much love. I appreciate you all very much,” she continued.
