Bella Thorne is coming out swinging after Whoopi Goldberg seemingly blamed her for the nude photos the actress released after a hacker extorted her for money.
Thorne took to her social media on Tuesday after watching “The View” where the hosts discussed her weekend hack.
The other hosts — including Joy Behar and Meghan McCain — seemed to sympathize with the 21-year-old, but Whoopi’s stance brought Thorne to tears.
“I feel pretty disgusting, Whoopi, knowing everyone’s seen my s*** and I just want to say that me watching this interview made me feel really bad about myself and I hope you’re happy,” the actress sobbed.
The book author added she was cancelling her upcoming interview on the show because “I don’t want to be beaten down by a bunch of older women for my body and my sexuality.”
“I’m going to cancel my interview because I don’t really want you guys talking about your views to young girls because I would not want my young daughter to learn that and I would never say that to her,” Thorne stated.
Wiping away tears, she shouted, “Shame on you, Whoopi. Shame on you for putting your public opinion just out there like that for every young girl to think that they’re disgusting for even taking a photo like that.”
Bella Thorne then compares nude photo hacks to getting sexually assaulted.
“If you take a sexy photo then it basically deserves to get leaked like don’t be surprised at all,” she tearfully stated. “So, if I go out drinking and I want to dance on the dance floor do I deserved to get raped too because to me I see those two things as really f***ing similar.”
Thorne lashed out over Tuesday’s “The View” episode where Whoopi essentially blamed her for even taking a nude pic.
“If you’re famous, I don’t care how old you are, you don’t take nude pictures of yourself,” Whoopi said.
“When they’re hacking you, they’re hacking all of your stuff. So whether it’s one picture or a million pictures once you take that picture it goes into the Cloud and it’s available to any hacker who wants it and if you don’t know that in 2019 that this is an issue … I’m sorry,” she added. “You cannot be surprised that someone has hacked you. Especially if you have stuff on your phone. That’s why they’re hacking you.”
And while Whoopi doesn’t seem to support Thorne’s actions, her BFF, YouTube star Tana Mongeau, is coming to her defense.
“yo f*** @whoopigoldberg” and “I feel so sorry for you to have that mindset.”
As The Blast reported, Bella Thorne leaked her own nude photos on Saturday after she says she was threatened with their release by a hacker.
The actress then shared text messages showing the nude photos during an apparent interaction with the hacker. She wrote a lengthy message alongside them, which began, “Yesterday as you all know my s**t was hacked 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 special from me that I only wanted one special person to see.”
