Jennifer Lawrence, Kate Upton, Ariana Grande and more female celebrities were shocked on Sunday when alleged nude photos of themselves started to spread across the Internet.

A spokesperson for The Hunger Games star confirmed the leaked pictures of Lawrence are real, reportedly hacked from the 24-year-old’s phone and iCloud account.

“This is a flagrant violation of privacy,” the spokesperson for the actress said in a statement. “The authorities have been contacted and will prosecute anyone who posts the stolen photos of Jennifer Lawrence.”

Grande, Olympic gymnast McKayla Maroney and Disney channel regular Victoria Justice have each stated that their alleged nude photos are fake. All of the celebrities targeted by the massive hack, which also includes Kirsten Dunst and Mary Elizabeth Winstead, are understandably concerned by the attack and how quickly the stolen photographs spread online. The FBI is currently investigating the breach of privacy.

Along with the celebrities directly affected, several other stars have taken to Twitter to talk about the racy leak. From jokey quips to furious posts, see how Hollywood is reacting to this disturbing scandal below. //
