It was recently reported that Jennie had removed all followers and followings on her private Instagram. However, the flood of leaked photos still remains a problem.
In the past, there were cases in the U.S and Hong Kong when the leaks of celebrities’ photos turned the whole society upside down.
First, in 2008, photos of female celebrities were leaked from the personal computer of Hong Kong actor Edison Chen by a computer repairing engineer. A large number of photos spread quickly all over the place on the Internet, causing damage to many actresses and models. Edison Chen, who owned the photos, was even assaulted by a group of three people led by the father of actress Cecilia Cheung, one of the victims.
It was not easy for Cecilia Cheung, who became the biggest victim of the incident that shook Asia, to make a comeback. Another victim Gillian Chung, a member of the group Twins, also suffered difficulties and resume her broadcasting activities through a tearful interview.
Moving to Hollywood, there was a hack of Apple iCloud account in 2014. Personal photos of dozens of celebrities, including Jennifer Lawrence, who rose to stardom after starring in “The Hunger Games” series, were leaked. The hacker even posted the photos on online community sites. In fact, actress Jennifer Lawrence once complained that this incident left her with trauma until now.
Such an incident may slowly be forgotten by the public, but it can leave an unhealable wound in the heart of the victim.
How about Jennie and V? The hacker is indiscriminately revealing photos and videos online one after another, claiming that they are photos of Jennie and V’s private lives. Photos and videos that have not been verified for authenticity are spreading through various SNS and online communities. They are also being reprocessed through various media around the world and ridiculed by netizens in some places.
It doesn’t matter whether V and Jennie are in a romantic relationship or not. As the hacker’s malicious moves are intensifying and showing no signs of ending, fans’ attention has already moved from figuring out whether the two’s relationship is real or not to whether there is a way to prevent the photo leaks.
Fans are getting more anxious as photos taken in extremely private places are disclosed everywhere and they also cannot understand the purpose of the crime that is causing mental trauma to the artists. The public is also wondering what the two agencies are doing, other than closing their artists’ private accounts on SNS.
