After the huge star photo hack a couple of years ago, when multiple female stars had their cozy pictures stolen and posted online, many people blamed the victims for the offense: One common refrain was “Don’t shoot nude selfies,” or a variation of, “What did you expect in the event you shot naked photos?”

“Pretty Little Liars” star Lucy Hale confronted an identical reaction on Thursday night after TMZ reported that two topless photographs were stolen from the actress’s phone and printed on a website; her lawyer sent a letter demanding they be removed. On Twitter, many enthusiasts sent encouraging messages — but one user tweeted, “Well, Lucy Hale must be embarrassed.”

Hale, 27, decided to address the topic directly while a common instinct might be to blow off the Internet completely following a dreadful invasion of privacy. “why would I be embarrassed?” she tweeted back nearly immediately. I got violated, and my photographs were illegally stolen by someone. Obstructed? No. furious? Yes.”

Supporters leapt to defend Hale, although the Twitter user wrote the original tweet had been a joke and immediately backed down. Are individuals acting as if it’s your fault? The girl gets attributed and once a girl’s private things were violated,” another user wrote.

Just after, a longer statement was elaborated with by Hale: “Well, I wasn’t going to remark on something so foolish, but since 2017 is gonna be about speaking my truth… all “ her private life and body were exposed for anybody to see and Once again, a woman in the public eye was raped, stolen from. I'll not apologise for having a personal life that's all mine and living my life. It’s .” that is unfortunate that being exposed in this way is enabled
