Did The iCloud Celebrity Nude Picture Scandal Have Something To Do With Harvey Weinstein?
In September of 2014, Apple was getting ready to announce a massive iPhone upgrade: bigger iPhones than anything it sold before. But just a few days ahead of the iPhone 6 press event, an iCloud security scandal broke out. Nude pictures belonging to Jennifer Lawrence and many other celebrities leaked online, originating from iPhone backups.
Apple explained at the time that its iCloud security was not breached and that hackers probably used phishing schemes to obtain the usernames and passwords of the celebrities.
Here is a conspiracy thought: What if it wasn’t an iCloud hack? What if the pictures came from Harvey Weinstein’s phone? Was it hacked into, stolen or lost? What if Jennifer Lawrence’s pictures were intended for Harvey?
Apple has always maintained there was no hack and if you’ve seen any of the leaked the photos, some looked like what could be casting couch sessions more than random personal photos. In all honesty though, there’s no way of knowing. Jennifer Lawrence’s pictures in particular were way too well-done to be selfies; she had to have someone take them. Who is the question? An Assistant, a friend… that’s a good theory to ponder on.
In case you haven’t heard, Harvey Weinstein has been accused by Ashley Judd and a few other celebrities of requesting aspiring and established Hollywood starlets to accept his sexual advances in exchange for big studio roles, especially the Oscar bait career-making roles. Jennifer Lawrence is one of those that’s suspected of being made into Hollywood’s new “It Girl” out of nowhere probably due to her odd close relationship Weinstein. A lot of other starlets like Emma Watson, Scarlett Johansson, Jessica Alba, Brie Larson etc. are suspected to have done the same for roles. Weinstein’s apparently been doing this for decades. He’s already admitted to vague wrongdoings and his legal team and family are all circling the wagons.
The craziest thing of it all is how absolutely silent almost all of the entertainment industry has been about it, considering their treatment of Trump for just locker room banter, or their previous claims of caring about women’s issues, etc. It is also interesting how none of the late night show hosts have mentioned it even though it’s the most lurid Hollywood scandal in years. It’s almost as if they’re afraid they won’t get any more work if they speak ill of a certain segment of the Hollywood aristocracy.
So is it possible to assume Harvey Weinstein was taking some of those leaked Jennifer Lawrence pictures? Or were they meant for only him to see?
