The Nude Abides

I know I shouldn't have due to the nature of the incident, but I laughed. I laughed a lot.

When the whole nudes thing first came up, I did a quick Google search out of sheer curiosity, saw a vast array of photoshops, shrugged and closed the tab. To this day, I haven't seen Jen's nudes, or any of the other recently leaked nudes. Because I don't care. There are plenty of tits on the internet available for viewing, and while I do like Lawrence, I'm not obsessed to the extent half the internet seems to be...

I mean, seriously people, "The Fappening"?

I think that was clever branding; I'm sure there have been other big leaks of bunches of naked celebrities, but I can't name a single incident. By naming it, they gave it staying power and weight, which is exactly what you want when you aim for infamy.

OT: Now I really want to Lawrence scanalously revealed in a Pikachu costume.

What does it say on the guy's box? Something about #GamerGate ?

... Another convincing photoshop.

What I can't get over is how crazy people went over these pics, when there's been better porn on the internet for decades.

Saying there's porn already available misses the fundamental point of why people want to see the photos.

I wouldn't be surprised if there's someone Photoshopping a picture of Erin right now.

Side note: There were some male celebrities in the mix, but no one really seems to care about them.

It's also worth noting that anyone who has the complete archive of it technically has child porn on their system, as two of those whose photos were leaked were under 18 when the photos were taken.

I know I shouldn't find this funny, but I do.

Yeah, pictures are old hat. Moving pictures, that's where the money is at :p

Not sure what you mean. Had you typed any of these stars' names with the word 'nude' you would have seen convincing photo-shops before this too.

Just because the nipples are the right color doesn't really make it all that special. And I'm a dude that likes ladies admitting that. Breasts are breasts. I'm sorry, but Jennifer is just a woman like any other woman. People aren't unique or special for their body (short of being deformed), we are unique or special based on personality and humans notice facial differences far more than anything else and we don't find that part sexual so...

No need. Rule 34 of Critical Miss already exists on the internet. And I think Grey is aware of it, too.

I won't be surprised if in the future there was a strip commenting on its terrible quality. :P

Jennifer Lawrence is a Pikachu? Theres a scoop TMZ doesn't have. Good investigative journalism guys!

Well, I always thought she was electric..

It's the pleasure of it being forbidden. Simple as that. People wanted the pictures because it were "real" celebrities. It kind of baffles me that people don't get that.

I think it says "4 the Jurnalism".

Well, I would't say "child porn", since an 16-17 years old individual is hardly a child. Underage porn is more like it.
And while it is, indeed, bad, it is not as bad as you made it sound.

OT: While I do get the joke, seeing an convincing photoshop is not the same as seeing the real thing. No one likes being lied to...

That depends what country your from not to mention that nude and 'engaged in sex' may have different restrictions as well.

Please tell me "#notacrime" isn't a real thing.

I'm afraid to try checking for myself.

Also, how has only one person made any jokes about this shocking revelation so far?

C'mon guys. Usually someone would be all over that.

EDIT: I mean, without this very informative Critical Miss I never would've seen that Ms. Lawrence is part Pikachu.

Oh wow. That is so very apt. That image is the entire celeb nude thing in a nutshell.

As far as I can tell, it reads:

#GamerGate
4 the Journalism

Oh, bad taste there.

Exactly...not to mention that many people involved are very upset about having naked pics of them stolen and leaked.

Hahahahahahaha, that was my reaction when I first heard it was called "The Fappening". I mean really? and its not just female its male as well or does that not count. I don't understand why everyone is so upset about it, the tabloids have been publishing nude celebs photos for years and its considered ok. What I don't understand is why do people upload such things to the Internet/cloud/file share services in the first place.

Why'd I google that? As much as I love Erin just........gah fuck. Gonna go remove my eyes with a spoon.

Seriously though this is kinda horrifying, knowing anyone with an iphone can be hacked. I don't have one (I hate apple) but I know people who do.

I think its actually 4 the jurnulizm.

Which is probably, somehow, a really significant misspelling that nobody by Grey and Carter understand.

Seriously, guys? You had to invade her privacy like that for a joke? Hasn't Jennifer Lawrence suffered enough without exposing her fur and tail for all to see?

GOD. You guys are just heartless!

(odds that someone takes this seriously, even though I directly referenced part of Pikachu's anatomy?)

The unfortunate thing is people really do care. It's just a reality. People want to see these famous folks with their naughty bits out. Hell, I'm curious, just not curious enough to go looking for leaked photos.

Oh God, and I just read someone's comment that there's Rule 34 Critical Miss. Not only am I not curious, but I'm a little terrified.

The photos are also getting displayed on canvas at a museum in Florida.[1]

Some people are very upset about it.[2]

Some message about privacy and Google and all that.
Call me skeptical, but I don't think it was really about the message.

As far as gaming sites are concerned, the leaks couldn't have happened at a better time. If you haven't noticed, the gaming community has been too busy ripping itself apart to worry about Jennifer Lawrence's jibblets.

Some of it is actually pretty good. I mean, as far as the horrors you can encounter on paheal go. Did I just admit this out loud?

You can tell it's real when it's not nearly as sexy as the good shops. Ya know, like an amateur shot it. I saw it, it was kinda fun in a "so that's what she looks like" sort of way but it turns out shes just your average everyday girl in more than just her screen presence.

I wonder if this event will have any lasting repercussions for the paparazzi industry, likely not, people will likely forget about this after a while and the tabloids will be free to post their pics of celebrities standing in front of their windows nude

Not gonna lie, This lady and "and she's watching with glee" was pretty much the only thing to come to mind reading that.

Rule 34 Critical Miss? SO that's what their graphic designer Penny's been up to!

OT: The only sane thing I can say about the photo leak is that whoever at 4chan did it are a bunch of sick fucks who should all drop dead already, and Google and Apple really need to up the security on their clouds. Better yet, celebrities, if you have nude pics of yourself meant only for your sweeties, don't store them in anything that can connect to the net. Try a removable external HDD.

The real message is "I am a fame-hungry douche who will jump on any controversy to draw attention to myself in the laziest way possible. Please punch me in the face." And here I am cracking my knuckles.

Yeah, I can't tell if this is actually trying to get a point across (ignoring the fact that only the dumbest need a damn art exhibit to tell them this), showcasing a current trend in the navel-gazing, bafflingly inefficient, and pretentious way only high/fine artists and curators can, or just trolling for the tickets. Either way, though, I feel like Hennessy Youngman is behind it.
