"It is not a scandal. It is a sex crime. It is a sexual violation. It's disgusting. The law needs to be changed, and we need to change. That's why these websites are responsible."

The stolen photos were posted on Reddit and 4chan, and quickly went viral among other websites. Poor judgment aside, that still doesn't necessarily mean celebrities deserved to have their personal photos stolen - but is yet another warning to regular users to be careful about where these types of photos or videos are stored.
