Bella Thorne has hit back at Whoopi Goldberg for her reaction to her nude photos being hacked.

The 21-year-old former Disney Channel star posted semi-nude photos of herself online at the weekend claiming she had been hacked. Goldberg stated Thorne was in part responsible for taking the photos in the first place.

Thorne revealed in a tearful video on Instagram she had turned down appearing on US chat show The View to defend her actions as she, “didn’t feel like being beaten down by a bunch of older women.”

“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 view on this matter is honestly awful and I hope u change ur mind set as u are on a show talking to young girls. [sic]”

Thorne chose to publish the pictures herself after they were hacked, stating she was taking “my power back” by making them public.

She revealed a hacker had sent her topless pictures of herself which they had stolen from her and were threatening to release them if she did not pay a ransom.

Goldberg, 63, said on The View: “If you’re famous, I don’t care how old you are. You don’t take nude pictures of yourself.”

When Oscar-winning actress Jennifer Lawrence had her nude photos hacked and leaked online in 2014 she branded it a “sex crime” admitting she felt violated.
