Bella Thorne Responds to Whoopi Goldberg After Alleged “Slut-Shaming”

On a recent episode of the daytime talk show, The View, the cast discussed the recent “leak” of explicit photos of actress Bella Thornes.

Goldberg said that Thorne should have known that hackers would have had access to the photos she had taken and shouldn’t have taken them in the first place.

“Once you take that picture it goes into the cloud and it’s available to any hacker who wants them,” Goldberg said on the show. “And if you don’t know that in 2019 that this is an issue, I’m sorry, your age does not — you don’t get to do that.”

Thorne released a tearful response to the episode saying quote, “Shame on you,” Announcing that she was canceling her scheduled appearance on The View, “I don’t really wanna go on ‘The View’ anymore because I don’t really want to be beaten down by a bunch of older women for my body and sexuality.”

In the video posted by Thorne, she goes on to comment on how the comment made her feel bad about herself saying “Watching this interview made me feel really bad about myself.”

She also went on to criticize Goldberg saying she wasn’t just attacking her, but also other victims of this kind of attack. “Shame on you, Whoopi…for putting that public opinion out there just like that for every young girl to think they’re disgusting for even taking a photo like that. Shame on you, saying if you take a sexy photo, then it basically deserves to get leaked like don’t be surprised at all and don’t feel sorry for yourself.”

This isn’t the first instance of this situation, a few years ago a similar leak had happened to a number of female celebrities, including Jennifer Lawrence, Aubrey Plaza, and Kate Upton.

In this digital age, private information is more vulnerable than we’d like to believe.

Both videos have been posted on CNN.
