The nude photo scandal that has victimized a number of celebrities such as Jennifer Lawrence, Cara Delevingne and Kate Upton, has claimed its first male victim in Hulk Hogan's son, Nick.
As per reports, the pictures are from his high school days where Nick is seen hanging out with several young women in various states of undress. Supposedly, there are even some images of Nick's mom Linda in a thong.
Nick is believed to be the first male celebrity directly targeted by hackers in the string leaks, which has been crudely dubbed the fappening.
Meanwhile, the biggest victim of round four of fappening seems to be "The Vampire Diaries" star Nina Dobrev, whose 100 plus pictures were leaked online. And although she is fully-clothed in all the pictures, there appears to be a picture showing her licking another woman's breasts, and one of her grabbing her own.
The fourth round of fappening comes in the wake of a lawsuit filed against Google by Hollywood attorney Marty Singer, who claimed that the Internet search engine has been acting irresponsibly by not swiftly removing the nude pictures, and for "making millions and profiting from the victimization of women," according to Daily Beast.
"Google knows that the Images are hacked stolen property, private and confidential photos and videos unlawfully obtained and posted by pervert predators who are violating the victims' privacy rights and basic human decency by stealing and displaying confidential private photos and videos (most of which depict the women in private settings, while nude or semi-nude, engaging in private intimate conduct) without the permission of the owners of the Images," Singer's letter stated.
"Yet Google has taken little or no action to stop these outrageous violations, or to limit the Images from appearing in Google search results."
The letter added that while other networking sites such as Twitter was prompt in removing these obscene images and suspending the offending user's account, Google has allowed users to continue posting images without any dire action.
A day after Singer's letter was fired off on 2 October, Google responded with a statement of its own, claiming that it has taken down hundreds of accounts of offending parties.
"Of course people continue to post these images on the web, so—like other online services—we rely on people notifying us to help us take them down, whether by flagging content, or filing DMCA (Digital Millennium Copyright Act) requests," read the statement.
"We're removing these photos for community guidelines and policy violations (e.g. nudity and privacy violation) on YouTube, Blogger and Google+," the statement read, reported Daily Beast.
