AceShowbiz - Rosario Dawson is caught in a controversy after her nude photos and videos were leaked online on April 11. Materials leaked were pictures that show a woman resembling the actress posing completely naked and a video of the same woman in a hot tub.
The hacking, which is called "The Fappening 2.0", has been continuously leaking actresses' private photos. The first wave started in 2014 when 500 photos of women, mostly containing nudity, were released online. The hackers were believed to obtain these private photos from hacking Apple's cloud service, iCloud, by taking advantage of its security issue. Many popular celebrities became victims, like Jennifer Lawrence, Kirsten Dunst and Mary Elizabeth Winstead.
In 2017, another series of hacking started again. So far, the celebrities affected were Miley Cyrus, Suki Waterhouse, Emma Watson, Amanda Seyfried and Halle Berry. Meanwhile, website Celeb Jihad "announced" that actresses Alison Brie and Sophie Turner are going to be the next victims. The website recently posted "teasers" containing Alison's semi-revealing photo and Sophie's private photo.
Emma and Amanda have taken legal action after their private photos were leaked online. Emma's representative stated that the photos were taken while the "Beauty and the Beast (2017)" actress was trying out clothes, but they weren't nude photos. "They are not nude photographs. Lawyers have been instructed and we are not commenting further," the representative said.
Amanda's attorney immediately requested for the photos to be taken down by sending a letter to Celeb Jihad. "Your unauthorized use and distribution of the Seyfried Photographs constitutes, at a minimum, copyright infringement, violation of Ms. Seyfried's right of privacy under applicable law, and tortious conduct under state and common law," the letter said. It was later revealed that Amanda's ex-boyfriend Justin Long was featured in the photos as well.
As for now, it is still unclear whether Rosario Dawson is going to take legal action against the website. There hasn't been any official statement released.
