Millions of perverted men are so pissed right now. The FBI has officially found and caught the hacker responsible for releasing a slew of private celebrity photos. On Wednesday morning, the FBI put out the grand jury indictment of the man, revealing that he hacked into the email accounts of fifty different victims.
35-year-old Christopher Chaney of Jacksonville Florida acted alone and released the photos without asking for any compensation. He just did it for the rush, according to law enforcement. Along with Scarlett Johansson, the perv also targeted Vanessa Hudgens, Ali Larter, Jessica Alba and Christina Aguilera.
According to TMZ, the feds say that Chaney used public information to access the email accounts of his victims. He then figured out how to access their computers and cell phones. I guess this is what happens when you beat Call of Duty and have nothing else to do with your life.
If convicted on all counts, Chaney faces 121 years in federal prison. So he'll be 156 when he gets out. I'm sure time will fly.
Johansson recently spoke out about her leaked photo scandal.
“Just because you’re in the spotlight, or just because you’re an actor or make films or whatever doesn’t mean you’re not entitled to your own personal privacy.”
The actress added that if your privacy "is sieged in some way, it feels unjust. It feels wrong." Probably because it is wrong.
Johansson's lawyer threatened to sue sites that posted the photos. ScarJo has never appeared nude in any of her movies and says that dealing with the attention of being a celebrity has been "an adjustment."
"But there are certain instances where you give a lot of yourself and then finally you just have to kind of put your foot down and say, ‘No, wait, I’m taking it back,’” she said.
Hudgens was targeted several times, and said about the incidents:
"It's unfortunate because in the old days actors were assigned to a studio. The studio then had complete control over the actor's image and what was let out about them.”
I'm guessing the studios looked unfavorably on crotch shots.
"I'm just trying to stay strong through everything - the negatives and the positives that may happen.”
