Lena Dunham Takes To Twitter To Speak Out Against Naked Photo Leak

02/09/2014 10:28 | Updated 20 May 2015

Lena Dunham is known for speaking her mind (one of the things we love about her), so it's no surprise she took to Twitter to plead with her fans in the midst of the nude photo leak firestorm, where stars like Jennifer Lawrence saw their privacy invaded when a hacker published naked photos of them online.


Dunham took to Twitter yesterday to show her support of the celebrities whose phones were hacked (there is a "master list" of over 100 names, including Kate Upton and Cara Delevingne), urging fans not to look at the photos, which she considered to be akin to condoning a "sex crime."

The star posted the series of tweets to her 1.7million + followers, writing: "Remember, when you look at these pictures you are violating these women again and again. It's not okay.

"Seriously, do not forget that the person who stole these pictures and leaked them is not a hacker: they're a sex offender."

Lena, whose book of essays, Not That Kind Of Girl: A Young Woman Tells You What She's Learned, will be released in October, concluded her impassioned tweets with the thought:

"The 'don't take naked pics if you don't want them online' argument is the 'she was wearing a short skirt' of the web. Ugh."
