With the surge of celebrity men getting busted for leaked nude pictures of themselves, Indiana rapper Freddie Gibbs has publicly asked them to stop participating in the craze.
Speaking via public service announcement, Gibbs discusses the recent phenomenon.
“There’s an epidemic going on in the male community today as we speak,” Gibbs explains in a public service announcement. “It’s causing guys their careers, reputations, even their families. This epidemic I’m speaking on? Sending d*ck pics. Nasty motherf*ckers. You should be ashamed of your f*cking self. We don’t want to see that sh*t, dog. You just get exposed on Twitter, Facebook and all that sh*t. Look at [former U.S. Representative] Anthony Weiner. You know what the other f*cked up part about this sh*t is is the b*tches. Anthony Weiner. The name says it all, god d*mnit. B*tches, y’all allow this sh*t. Y’all tell these n*ggas to send a d*ck pic.” (XXL Mag)
In March, R&B singer Chris Brown fell victim to leaked nude photos of himself getting exposed.
Chris Brown leaked photos are nothing new. But in this case, the Chris Brown leaked photos are in a far different context. Once again, a celebrity has taken a nude picture of himself and wrongfully thought that it would stay private. In this case, an ex-girlfriend found the image and posted it on the Internet. It was posted as part of a video, hosted by World Star Uncut. The photos are recent since they show him with his new dyed blonde hair. He is posing naked in the bathroom, likely as part of a “sexting” session. However, one of his ex-girlfriends took the image and exposed him to the online world. (Associated Content)
In 2010, Grammy-winning rapper Kanye West also had naked pictures leaked across the Internet.
The website MediaTakeOut.com posted the image Friday, after weeks of rumors that claimed naked shots of West were making the rounds. In the picture, which the site claims they received Friday morning, West is shown sitting on what appears to be a couch or chair, shirtless and wearing sunglasses and a chain necklace. The bottom half of the uncensored photo, posted as a separate image, reveals West wearing black boxer-briefs with his member exposed. (New York Daily News)
In light of the leaked manhood shots, SOHH recently talked to celebrity gossip personality Carrie Keagan about the authenticity of “stolen” photos.
“It is so stupid. I think it is so stupid that you can in this day and age, now that a million people have done it, you can still get these things out there,” Keagan told SOHH. “I don’t think it’s an accident. Like that Chris Brown [nude] photo that got leaked, as impressive as it was, that was definitely not an accident. Those things just don’t happen anymore. Unless somebody is hacking into your stuff and putting it out there for you, it doesn’t happen. These [leaked sex tapes and nude pics] are all planted, are all publicity and are for show. And you know what? I had no issues looking at Chris Brown’s photo. I mean, everybody’s naked these days. You can’t get famous without getting naked these days. [laughs]” (SOHH)
