So it turns out that some nude pictures of Jennifer Lawrence were stolen by a hacker and leaked onto the internet for the world to see. This isn’t the first time something like this has happened and it certainly won’t be the last.
Now that the pictures have made their rounds, as one might have expected, people have started with the slut shaming. People, who I’m sure have no right to judge or criticize anyone else to begin with. I’m sure that some of these people are just trolls looking to get a rise out of those who support her but Im sure there are also those who honestly believe that what she did is wrong.
I feel that all these people trying to slut shame her need to step back and remember that she is a grown woman. She is allowed to take whatever pictures of herself she likes. Were they meant for everyone to see? No. Did she want them posted on the internet? No, but that’s neither here nor there at this point. Does she deserve to be treated the way that she’s being treated? Certainly not.
So let’s set the record straight she, or anyone else who takes intimate photos in the privacy of their own homes are not sluts nor have they done anything wrong. Jennifer Lawrence has nothing to be ashamed of and I think she’s handling this like a champ by coming forward and straight up admitting that the pictures are genuine. Sure, she could have denied it but what would that have accomplished? They were already out there, people have already seen them.
If your opinion of her changes after seeing pictures of her that she took in the privacy of her own home and after seeing that she is a human being who does stupid stuff behind closed doors with a camera phone just like so many of us, then its you who needs to change, not her.
My opinion of Jennifer Lawrence has not changed nor do I think any less of her and I’m looking forward to seeing her in X-Men: Apocalypse because she totally kicks ass as Mystique!
