While, through a spokeswoman, Emma Watson has disputed the authenticity of any nude images within the leak claiming that any nude photos within the trove that are allegedly of her are a "hoax" , she has confirmed that genuine private photos of her have been posted online without her permission. Likewise, Amanda Seyfried's attorneys have already demanded that at least one website remove the images, some of which, Seyfried has acknowledged, contain explicit material. Any unauthorized release of private photographs - especially of people undressed or engaged in intimate activities - is a serious crime and violation of privacy; I sympathize with the victims - and they are victims - and I sincerely hope that the perpetrators are identified, apprehended, and punished. Society often forgets that celebrities are people who suffer emotional pain no differently than anyone else. It is unclear as of yet how exactly the photos ended up on the Internet, but one thing is clear: they were not adequately protected.
