Actress Emma Watson has responded to social media criticism of the celebrity victims of a nude photo hacking scandal, saying the reaction is worse than the violation of their privacy.

Jane Caro: why would you take naked photos?

The 24-year-old, who is friends with actresses at the centre of the scandal like Jennifer Lawrence, condemned the public’s reaction on Twitter.

Many Twitter users have been scathing of the women, saying they shouldn’t have taken the photos in the first place if they didn’t want them leaked.

Comedian Ricky Gervais was widely criticised for saying the celebrities were at fault for having the photos in a place where they could be hacked. He later deleted the tweet. 

Actress and creator of Girls Lena Dunham said blaming the victims was like the argument that women ask to be violated because they were ‘wearing a short skirt’.

Actress Jennifer Lawrence’s spokesperson said that anyone who republished the explicit photos of her would be sued.
