Bella Thorne Breaks Down Over Whoopi Goldberg's Response To Her Nude Photos
Bella Thorne has tearfully hit back at Whoopi Goldberg after 'The View' host seemingly shamed her for having naked photos of herself.
ICYMI; last week, Bella Thorne was the victim of a hack on social media, with the actress soon revealing they had threatened to release nude photographs of the 'Famous in Love' star.
In an attempt to regain control and get her "power back", Thorne decided to release the photos on her own accord.
"For the last 24 hours I have been threatened with my own nudes," Thorne wrote in a statement. "I feel gross, I feel watched, I feel someone has taken something from me that I only wanted one special person to see."
Alongside her own nude photos, she added, "For too long I let a man take advantage of me over and over and I'm f**king sick of it, I'm putting this out because it's MY DECISION NOW U DONT GET TO TAKE YET ANOTHER THING FROM ME."
Panellists on 'The View' later discussed the incident, and host Whoopi Goldberg had some pretty controversial views on the matter.
"If you're famous, I don't care how old you are... you don't take nude pictures of yourself," Goldberg exclaimed. "Once you take that picture, it goes into the cloud and it’s available to any hacker who wants it. And if you don't know that in 2019 that this is an issue, I'm sorry. You don't get to do that."
Bella, understandably, became emotional over Goldberg's victim-blaming, posting a tearful video to her Instagram stories calling out the 63-year-old in a clip which had the text "shame on u" plastered across the screen.
"I was supposed to be on 'The View' but honestly I don't feel like being beaten down by a bunch of older women for my body and my sexuality," Bella explained.
"I just want to say that me watching this interview made me feel really bad about myself," she admitted. "I hope you're happy. I really do. I really hope you're so f**king happy because I can only imagine all of the kids who have their s**t released and then they commit suicide."
"You're so crazy for thinking such terrible things on such an awful situation," she continued. "I don't really want you guys talking about your views to young girls. I would not want my [future] daughter learning that and I would never say that to her. OK, I'm done."
Following the drama, Twitter users have come out in droves supporting Bella and criticising Whoopi for her outdated and problematic views.
Bella then penned a lengthy message to Whoopi via her notes app, which was posted to her Instagram Stories.
"Dear Whoopi, I have loved u [sic] for so long, but honestly, I'm so displeased and saddened by your response to my leak. Blaming girls for taking the photo in the first place? Is sick and honestly disgusting. So what a girl can't send her boyfriend that she misses photos of her that are sexy? Things he's already seen? I as a woman should be scared walking around my home, being on my phone, doing anything? Is that what u want our women to be like? Scared of the masses for their sexuality?? Is that what u want? I don't."
She continued, "I'm offended for anyone out there who has ever taken a sexy photo. I am offended for Jennifer Lawrence who feels publicly raped. I am offended for every person who has committed suicide for someone leaking their nudes. Ur [sic] view on this matter is honestly awful and I hope u [sic] change ur [sic] mindset as u [sic] are on a show talking to young girls."
You tell 'em, Bella.
