Bella Thorne broke down in tears after The View co-host Whoopi Goldberg shamed her for leaking her own nudes on social media.
The former Disney actress made headlines when she leaked her own nudes online in response to a hacker’s demand for money.
Bella leaked her own nudes, saying she was getting the jump on the hacker who threatened to leak her nudes online if she didn’t pay up. The hacker reportedly told her he had her nudes and he hacked other celebrities as well.
But Whoopi Goldberg had no sympathy for the 21-year-old actress who is best known for her role as dancer CeCe Jones on Disney’s Shake It Up.
Goldberg criticized the young actress for having nudes on her cell phone in this day and age. “If you’re famous, I don’t care how old you are, you don’t take nude pictures of yourself,” Whoopi said.
“When they’re hacking you, they’re hacking all of your stuff. So whether it’s one picture or a million pictures – once you take that picture it goes into the Cloud and it’s available to any hacker who wants it.”
Whoopi questioned Bella’s good judgment and whether she leaked her own nudes for attention.
“I’m sorry, you cannot be surprised that someone has hacked you. Especially if you have stuff on your phone. That’s why they’re hacking you.”
Bella was horrified at Whoopi’s public rebuke. She took to her Instagram stories to lash out at the 63-year-old actress and daytime talk show host.
“Shame on you, and shame on you for putting that public opinion just out there like that for every young girl to think that they’re disgusting for even taking a photo like that,” she said.
Bella compared taking nudes to getting drunk on the dance floor. “If I go out to a party drinking and I want to dance on the dance floor, do I deserve to be raped too?”
She continued: “I’m not gonna lie… I feel pretty disgusting, Whoopi, knowing everyone’s seen my s–t. And I just want to say that me watching this interview made me feel really bad about myself and I hope you’re happy… I can only imagine all the kids having their s–t released and then they commit suicide.”
Bella said she was canceling her interview on The View because, “I don’t really want to be beaten down by a bunch of older women for my body and my sexuality.”
