Iggy Azalea has had it rough via social media. Whether it's regarding her looks or her music, people have shown their mean streaks when it comes to the Aussie rapper. Now, Billboard reports that — due to leaked pics — Iggy Azalea is seeking legal action against those who hacked and spread her topless images on the Internet. Once Iggy's pics were leaked, Azalea immediately deactivated her Instagram and Twitter accounts.

The leaked pics have Iggy fuming, as they were thought to have been deleted long ago. Billboard states that they were outtakes from a 2016 GQ cover shoot. No, the leaked photos weren't finals.

So why weren't they erased from the archives? What professional would keep topless pics of Iggy if they weren't used in the publication? That's actually the question Azalea asks as well.

"There was no reason for anyone to have kept the outtakes from the shoot," Iggy Azalea stated via a deleted post, as reported by Billboard. "I'm surprised and angry that they were not immediately deleted after the final images were selected."

Iggy Azalea is a 'ball of negative emotions' after leaked pics

According to Billboard, in response to this violation of her privacy, Azalea said, "I feel blindsided, embarrassed, violated, angry, sad, and a million other things." Iggy went on to say, "Not solely because I did not consent to this – but also because of the vile way people have reacted." Iggy Azalea says these leaked pics have suddenly changed her life in ways we couldn't imagine.

So, she intends to press charges against the person or people responsible.

Azalea says she "fully intends" on finding the hacker and pursuing criminal charges. Iggy also notes that it's vital someone be held responsible for what has happened. Interestingly enough, GQ hasn't commented on Iggy Azalea's leaked pics.

But Billboard has noted that Chilean-Canadian photographer Nino Munoz is the person who was assigned to Azalea's photoshoot. According to him, the pics of Iggy were stolen. Munoz has expressed his remorse in the leaked situation and reportedly states that he is "utterly outraged" by the pics being exposed.

All in all, Iggy Azalea has left social media for now. Of course, there's no determinant date on how long she'll keep her social media accounts deactivated. However, Iggy wants everyone to think of how it'd feel to be in her shoes at the moment. Azalea says that, in the last 24 hours, she's received all kinds of messages regarding her leaked pics, and it's a lot to handle. The rapper requests that everyone "please be kinder to one another."

When someone's privacy is violated, it's never something to take lightly. However, from a brief look at social media's comments regarding the leaked topless photos, one could understand why Azalea would want to take a hiatus.
