Many people took to social media to show their support and to address the situation.
“Leaking celebrity nudes is literally so classless and disrespectful. I’m tired of this s**t. Demi Lovato doesn’t deserve this at all!!!!!” one person said angerly.
Another person added, “It’s disgusting that people feel obligated to tear Demi Lovato down after every ounce of peace she puts into the world. my god, y’all are gross.”
Lovato is the latest of many celebrity victims whose private photos have leaked after hackers gain access to their accounts.
In this case, not only was Lovato’s Snapchat hacked, nude photographs of the singer were then posted to her own account.

The account was directing users to swipe up and join a private group, and this specific group has taken responsibility for taking over Twitter’s CEO Jack Dorsey’s account and have been connected to a nude photo leak of Chloe Grace Moretz.
Within minutes of the hacking, Snapchat was able to remove the images. It’s unclear at this point if Demi is working with law enforcement to investigate the hacking.
