Fans have rallied around Demi Lovato after her Snapchat was hacked and sensitive photos were posted to the account.
Fans are rallying around Demi Lovato after the singer was apparently hacked on Snapchat. The Blast reports that Demi's private nude photographs were posted to her Snapchat account on Thursday (17 October). Hackers also instructed fans to "swipe up" to join their Discord group.
Shortly after the sensitive photos were posted to the platform, Demi's team was able to regain control of the account. Demi has not publicly addressed the hack. According to The Blast, the same group may have also responsible for recent hacks on Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey and actress Chloe Grace Moretz.
Fans were immediately outraged for the singer who has struggled publicly in the last year and only recently returned to social media.
"it’s never ok to leak ANYONE’S nudes, but demi lovato has been open with the world about her mental struggles so why the fuck would u do that to her? that’s so damaging. like what in YOUR sick brain tells u to hack her snapchat and post that? so not cool, u should be ashamed [sic]," wrote one fan.
"That's disgusting and completely uncalled for. She doesn't deserve that after everything she has been through," tweeted another.
Another stood up for the singer, writing: "Why do people think it’s ok to hack celebrities and leak their private photos? Demi Lovato deserves so much better than this. We love you, Demi!"
Demi is the latest celebrity to have her private photos hacked. Influencer Alissa Violet decided to share her own private photo after being threatened by an individual.
Earlier this year, Bella Thorne also posted her own nudes after hackers threatened to share the intimate pictures.
Thankfully, the disturbing trend has seen prosecution in recent years. Last year, a hacker who stole private photos of Jennifer Lawrence, Kate Upton, and Kirsten Dunst was sentenced to eight months in prison.
It is unclear if Demi's team have reported the hack to law enforcement.
