Lucy Hale has come to terms with the reality that nothing, and no one is completely safe in this world, not even those private pictures she snapped behind closed doors in the comfort of her home.
The 27-year-old Hollywood actress never had the slightest that her naked pictures had been hacked.
Lucy received some “black hat” messages, some of which read: “We have a free Chipotle burrito for you, we just need your super private info,” reports confirm. She probably followed instructions without suspecting anything and this is the outcome.
According to a report from TMZ, the intruders called [Celeb Jihad] who got hold of those X-rated pics took their time passing it round to websites until they finally got one who agreed to publish them.
Just as it goes for every published celebrity leaked pictures, except for Kim Kardashian and associates who make money directly from such, the photos were sold at a very high price, of course.
The news outlet [TMZ] added that only two photos were hijacked from a phone belonging to the “Pretty Little Liars” star. She was said to have sent the pics showing her breasts, nipples, and breast tattoo, to a friend.
It’s a shame that we now live in a world where famous people can no longer avoid the prying eyes of hackers who can gain access to iCloud backups, phones or data transmitted online.
Taking nude photos for one’s eyes only, or for loved ones, isn’t wrong but the possibility of criminals stealing from your ignorance makes it a risky thing to do. However, applying caution might help in some cases.
As a last resort, Lucy has hired a celebrity scandal attorney named Marty Singer on an hourly pay. The cost of attorney services is said to equal the weekly pay of most working Americans.
Singer has ordered Celeb Jihad to take down those private pictures or face legal actions.
Meanwhile, the website managers responded, according to Celebuzz: “Yes Lucy Hale can send all the legal threats that she wants, she will never silence us righteous Muslims from calling her out as a degenerate whore.
“Of course Lucy should really be on her knees thanking us for drawing attention to her leaked nudes, as we significantly increased her public profile which will no doubt lead to her getting better roles in hopelessly depraved heathen Hollywood.
“Although to properly thanks us Lucy would have to be able to dislocate her jaw to have any hope of accommodating our enormous tunic snakes.”

Would you call this an expensive mistake or blame hackers for unleashing terror on an unsuspecting celebrity?
“Well, Lucy Hale must be embarrassed,” a fan wrote on Twitter after news of the leaked pictures broke out, according to The Washington Post.
Surprisingly, the Tennessee-born actress was far from being embarrassed as some fans thought. She replied: “Why would I be embarrassed?
“I got violated and someone illegally stole my photos.
“Embarrassed? No. angry? Yes,” she quickly added.
According to the report, Lucy got a huge support from her numerous fans notwithstanding the initial “negative comment”.
“Why are people acting as if it’s your fault? Once again a woman’s personal things were violated and the woman gets blamed,” another Twitter user wrote after the first commenter backed down, claiming the post about “being embarrassed” was a joke.
Following the incident, Lucy wrote this short message on social media: “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.
“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.”
Lucy Kate Hake is best known for her role as Aria Montgomery on the series “Pretty Little Liars,” which won her a People’s Choice Award for Favorite Cable TV Actress (2014).
“Thank you for all the sweet, supportive message I’ve been receiving. It was a much needed reminder that I’m surrounded by so much love,” she continued in her social media post.
“I appreciate you all very much,” she added. “And to whoever did this…kiss my ass.”
