Wikipedia Page Of Jennifer Lawrence Was Vandalised With Her Nude Photos

Will this torment ever end?

On the same day as her Vanity Fair cover story was released, in which she talked for the first time about the nude photo hacking and compared the breach to a sex crime, Jennifer Lawrence was targeted once again by vile humans, when her Wikipedia page was vandalised to include those very nude photos she was talking about.

The page is technically only officially allowed to be edited by a handful of approved Wiki editors, and today it was updated to include the sex crime quote from the magazine piece – but clearly some unauthorised a-holes were able to access the page to upload a couple of the nude photos that were accessed by 4Chan in August.

The level of torment inflicted on this girl is just beyond us. The idea that anyone could read a story on the stolen pictures being a sex crime, then deliberately commit that same crime on her Wiki page is mind-boggling. The pictures only remained on the site for around 20 minutes, then were swiftly removed by Wiki moderators.

Jennifer opened up about how traumatised she was about the whole thing, saying every time she’d tried to say anything about it before, she would just break down in tears of frustration and anger.

‘Every single thing that I tried to write made me cry or get angry. I started to write an apology, but I don’t have anything to say I’m sorry for,’ she said.

Explaining why she had the pictures on her phone (unnecessary, but we appreciate she may have felt the need to justify them somehow) she said: ‘I was in a loving, healthy, great relationship for four years. [With Nicholas Hoult, whom she has since split from.] It was long distance, and either your boyfriend is going to look at porn or he’s going to look at you.’

Of the hacking, she broke it down in actual, real terms: ‘It is not a scandal. It is a sex crime. It is a sexual violation. It’s disgusting.’

The FBI is rumoured to be close to finding the perpetrator(s), but she’s not holding on to the hope that the main hacker will be caught, either. ‘I can’t have my happiness rest on these people being caught because they might not be. I need to just find my own peace,’ she said.

And if things like this are going to keep happening, then that peace seriously will have to be found within herself.

Surely, this girl has gone through enough.
