The Bella Thorne nude-pic thing happened last weekend. Some hacker threatened to release some photos, and so Thorne released them herself in order to “reclaim her power.” Got it — good move.
But then The View‘s Whoopi Goldberg said Thorne was being reckless by sending nude photos to a boyfriend or even putting them on her phone in the first place. (Which is true — if you’re hot and famous the odds of your phone being hacked are high.) Thorne freaked and posted a “shame on you and fuck you, Whoopi” video.
This is basically a generational divide thing. Thorne’s contemporaries regard the posting of nude pics and sex tapes as totally routine and no biggie; women Whoopi’s age and older regard it (i.e., the sharing of intimate details) askance.
@bellathorne Fuck everyone who blame girls for what happens to them, y’all can take nudes, dance and dress the way YOU want. Your body is a work of art and it’s YOUR chose to share it or not. Stay strong my bb i lovr you. ❤️❤️ Our society’s fucked up. pic.twitter.com/BQMDVVis6y
