Justice Is Served For iCloud Hacker Who Leaked Nude Photos Of Jennifer Lawrence

George Garofano, the last of the four individuals responsible for a series of hacks of female celebrities’ phones, was sentenced to eight months in jail followed by three years of supervision for the role he played in the hacking and distribution of stolen nude photos. 

Garofano, 26, pled guilty to a phishing scheme he used to hack into Apple iCloud accounts. He posed as Apple security and sent emails requesting information. He then used that information to hack the accounts.

The hacking took place in 2014 and among the celebrities was Jennifer Lawrence as well as Kate Upton, Kirsten Dunst, Meagan Good and numerous others. 

At the time, Lawrence talked about the pain of the ordeal with The Hollywood Reporter saying:

When the hacking thing happened, it was so unbelievably violating that you can’t even put it into words. 

I feel like I got gang-banged by the fucking planet — like, there’s not one person in the world that is not capable of seeing these intimate photos of me. You can just be at a barbecue and somebody can just pull them up on their phone. That was a really impossible thing to process. 

Some fans remembered Lawrence’s feelings of violation and reaction to the attack on her right to privacy on her password protected life. 

But a shocking number of men on social media cheered the hacker.

Some even blamed the women for having nude photos in the first place.

But they were not let off the hook.

Cue the righteous smackdown:

This user asked an excellent question…

And received an excellent answer…

Do better, bros of the Internet.
