Summary: Alison Brie is the latest star to become a victim of the celebrity cyber hack called Fappening 2.0.

As long as there is the internet, there will always be a market for nude pictures. Problem is, there are lecherous hackers out there who’d rather steal nudes and post them online instead of just being satisfied with all the free porn.


In 2014, several unrelated hackers phished celebrities such as Jennifer Lawrence and Kate Upton for their cloud passwords, and from there, the hackers stole the celebrities’ nude photos. While prosecutors have already come down on the hackers, it is unclear how the photographs were published as the hackers were not charged with the actual pornographic dissemination.

No matter who is to blame, though, the theft and publishing are emotionally challenging to the victims. For instance, when Lawrence spoke to the FBI during the Celebgate investigation, she suffered from an apparent anxiety attack.

“[Lawrence] became very distraught and I had to stop the interview at one point because of her emotional reaction to the information being discussed,” an FBI agent had said in court filings. “(She) stated she was having an anxiety attack, and was visibly shaken.”

That 2014 celeb hack was known as CelebGate, but also grossly called the Fappening. The 2017 second round of celeb stolen photos is called Fappening 2.0 as an homage to the first scandal.

The Inquistr reported that Alison Brie from NBC’s Community is one of the latest stars to fall victim to having her private images leaked online. This week, nude photos of the actress appeared on the web, and they were allegedly stolen from her personal online files over the past few weeks.

Brie’s photos were published on April 22 after a hacker threatened to release them earlier this month. Gossip Cop said that the hacker previously uploaded a nude picture of her with black boxes over her private areas before stating that this image was only a “preview” of the uncensored image to come.

The leaked photo of Brie had her topless on a bed, and there are rumors that more nude pictures will find their way online soon from the hacker who calls himself “4chanthehacker.”

It is reported that 4chanthehacker could be responsible for other cyber hacks as part of Fappening 2.0, which has also affected singers Demi Lovato and Miley Cyrus as well as actresses Kate Hudson and Rosario Dawson. However, that report has not been confirmed, and it is unclear if there are other hackers involved.

In March, Emma Watson and Amanda Seyfried publicly stated that they would not let themselves be victimized after their stolen nudes were published. Their separate legal teams stated that they would go after any website that published those images, and this threat was enough for one celebrity site, Celebrity Jihad, to remove the actresses’ racy photos, which it had previously uploaded.
