Bella Thorne thwarted a hacker who stole her private photos and threatened her with them for weeks by posting them before he had the chance.
The former Disney star is by no means shy about nudity, but these highly personal private photos should never have been compromised. The actor has been hard at work promoting her upcoming book of poetry and opening up about her difficult past that is addressed in the book, set to release July 23.
Thorne unapologetically shared her nude photos to reclaim the power that was stolen from her through the weeks of blackmail and account hacking.
The actor posted her own nude photos and this empowering message before her hacker had the chance.
Thorne's fans were concerned when her Twitter account saw some problematic activity; the account posted racial slurs and changed her profile picture. Thorne regained access and deleted the offensive tweets and switched the profile picture, but the hacking didn't stop there.
"[Redacted] u and the power u think you have over me. I’m gonna write about this in my next book," she tweeted along with three topless photos and this message.
"For the last 24 hours I have been threatened with my own nudes I feel gross, I feel watched, I feel someone has taken something from me that I only wanted one special person to see," she wrote.
