Lucy Hale Fires Back After Topless Photo Hack
Lucy Hale isn’t going to take an invasion of her privacy lying down.
The “Pretty Little Liars” star opened up on Twitter on Thursday about her topless photos that went online after her phone was allegedly hacked.
“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,” she wrote.
“Once again, a woman in the public eye was violated, stolen from and her private life and body were exposed for anyone to see. 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 … And to whoever did this … kiss my ass,” Hale, 27, continued.
Hale’s lawyer, Marty Singer, sent a sternly worded letter to website Celeb Jihad after it posted two topless photos of the actress. He said the photos were Hale’s property and that a copyright infringement lawsuit was imminent if the snaps weren’t removed.
The site removed the photos and replaced them with doctored images of Hale’s face on other bodies, writing, “Her lawyers have demanded that we remove them on the grounds of copyright infrigement [sic], but the real reason was no doubt because Lucy is making a stupid duck face in them … Lucy Hale can send all the legal threats that she wants, she will never silence us.”
