World’s fastest man Usain Bolt has reportedly become the latest celebrity to fall victim to apparent leaked nude photos scandal. Highly personal and private photographs from his mobile phone were posted on several celebrity gossip websites yesterday.
Celebrities and nude photo scandals seem to go hand-in-hand. The 30-year-old athlete’s nude photos were leaked online through hacked phone on Sunday (August 21, 2016) and spread across the internet like wildfire. “The FBI is aware of the alleged hacking incident and is looking into it,” an FBI official told the press.
The editor of a Jamaican celebrity gossip magazine defended its use of the photos, citing there was “a clear public interest in publishing the Usain Bolt pictures, in order for the debate around them to be fully informed.” That’s also why we, at Mediamass, decided to publish all the nude photos. In public interest and just for the sake of information.
