So the guy who illegally accessed Scarlett Johansson’s email and got his hands on nude photos she’d taken of herself got caught, and is now facing up to 121 years in Federal prison for doing the same to several other actresses.
One hundred and twenty one years…?
I mean, I think we can all agree that what he did was wrong. But let’s get real about the actual offense here: the guy accessed her webmail – something that happens almost always because the person who got “hacked” uses their birthday for their password – and downloaded some photos that she took willingly, then posted them on an internet forum.
So let’s recap:
- Famous sex symbol takes nude photos of herself.
- Famous sex symbol stores them in a very insecure fashion.
- Horndog Floridian guy takes them and posts them online.
I don’t really see how that adds up to 121 years in jail – or anyone actually being surprised in the slightest. But maybe that’s just me.
Besides, we all know the real crime here is that the FBI actually called this “Operation Hackerazzi.”
