Bella Thorne is fighting back after Whoopi Goldberg apparently blamed Thorne for those nude photos that were hacked over the weekend.
Goldberg, moderator of the popular talk show “The View,” on Monday said about the photo hacking: “You cannot be surprised someone hacked you.”
It sounds like she’s basically blaming Thorne for taking pictures of herself.
“If you’re famous, I don’t care how old you are. You don’t take nude pictures of yourself,” she said.

Despite the other members of The View taking a more sympathetic stance, Goldberg wasn’t backing down, as reported by Yahoo:
“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. You don’t get to do that.”
Fans jumped to Thorne’s aid on social media, pointing out what they said was Goldberg’s “victim-blaming.”
Other fans were a little more outspoken, calling The View hosts “stupid witches.” That’s harsh.
From @JessieGalli’s point of view, Goldberg is following the status quo by saying Thorne is to blame for someone else hacking her semi-nude photos.
People like @7x77am stood up for Thorne and others’ freedom of expression: “Y’all can take nudes dance and dress the way YOU want.”
Thorne says now she won’t appear on The View, as she was originally scheduled to do.
Thorne, in tears, told Goldberg in her video: “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.”
