4chan leaker speaks out about THOSE celebrity photos

By now we’re sure you’re aware of the naked celebrity photos currently doing the rounds online. Well, here’s a look at what the person who leaked them has to say…

The person behind the leaked celeb nude photos has spoken out to say that they are not ‘a hacker’ and instead they are simply a ‘collector’. Not that that clears them of any wrongdoing.

Writing over on 4chan's /b/ form, the anonymous user said:

"I didn't take the money and run. Shit got weird once I started posting samples.

"AnoniB must have IP blocked me.. so i was spending all my time trying to find proxies, and then when I could get on this site was being hammered by everyone and I couldn't even post. I got some private requests through email but none every came through.

“People wanted shit for free. Sure, I got $120 with my bitcoin address, but when you consider how much time was put into acquiring this stuff (i'm not the hacker, just a collector), and the money (I paid a lot via bitcoin as well to get certain sets when this stuff was being privately traded Friday/Saturday) I really didn't get close to what I was hoping.

“Mainly because of the extra bitcoin spammers spamming their own address.. taking my original posts and passing them off as their own to try and get bitcoin.. but also because of the skeptics. I proved I had shit, but people wanted more and more for free. Well, fuck, you can't get everything for free sometimes.

"Anyway, back to weird shit happening when I posted samples.. someone was tracking me, trying to find me.. ISP kept cutting out. Weird emails coming in.. Kinda freaked me out and I had to leave for a couple hours. I'm back, but it's really fucking late right now. I'll come back in the morning.”

The leaker claims to have hundreds of NSFW images of over 100 celebrities. You can find the entire (SFW) list over here.

Some celebrities have even tweeted out their disgust about their personal photos being included in the leaked images, while others claim them to be fake.

The witch-hunt for the leaker has already begun with some outlets naming a 27-year-old from Georgia in the USA as the culprit, however, the man who is named claims to know nothing about the leaks in question.
