Celeb Jihad Ignores legal threat from Amanda Seyfried and Emma Watson; Refuses To Remove Naked Fappening 2.0 Photos
The Fappening 2.0 has caught the same public fancy as its predecessor Fappening 1.0 of 2014. In what could be called as Fappening 2.0, the iCloud hackers leaked images of Harry Potter star leaked nude images and videos of Harry Potter star, Emma Watson and other celebrities like Mischa Barton, Amanda Seyfried.
As was the modus operandi of Fappening 2014 image leakers, the Fappening 2.0 hackers released the images on the popular image boarding website, 4Chan and the popular social news aggregation website, Reddit.
From there, the images of Celebgate celebrities were carried on to hundreds of sites but prominent among them is Celeb Jihad. It was unclear how Celeb Jihad obtained the images, but they aren’t known for leaking nudes. In fact, they consider themselves a satirical website that publishes, “Rumors, speculation, assumptions, opinions [and] fiction, as well as factual information.”
The website description states that “Information on this site may or may not be true and is not meant to be taken as fact.makes no warranty as to the validity of any claims. uses invented names in all its stories, except in cases when public figures are being satirized. Any other use of real names is accidental and coincidental.”
Immediately after the Fappening 2.0 explicit images of Emma Watson, Amanda Seyfried and Mischa Barton were released, Emma and Amanda threatened legal action against the websites carrying their personal and up close pics. Reddit mods soon removed the images posted on its forum while the Fappening 2.0 thread on 4Chan still exists. Reddit has commentary about Watson’s leaked photos from “The Fappening 2.0,” which instructs Reddit users not to post “The Fappening 2.0” naked photos or any photos from the latest leak. On the contrary, Celeb Jihad seems to exulting with the response and the visitors it is getting and has refused to take down the images.
IBT reports that Celeb Jihad has replaced the nude photos of Amanda Seyfried with photoshopped images of the actress. The gossip site removed the original photos after Seyfried’s legal team sent them a notice. “Amanda Seyfried is claiming that she is the copyright holder of the leaked photos, so we have replaced them with Amanda’s nude scenes and vastly superior naked photos,” a message on Celeb Jihad reads. However, Emma’s images and videos still remain on the website.
