Cases of explicit celebrity photos have been rampant. Most of the time, the perpetrators go unpunished, and it seems to encourage them to post more celebrity nudes. There’s been an outcry for institutions and authorities to enforce the existing laws to curb the menace. The latest star to experience this was Justin Bieber and his ex-girlfriend Selena Gomez whose Instagram account was involved.

Bieber’s nudes were posted on Selena’s Instagram handle

According to TMZ, on Monday afternoon, several nude pictures of Justin appeared on Selena’s Instagram page. The page was then swiftly taken down. The account was allegedly hacked, but Selena has already re-secured it.

It was back just minutes after being taken down, with the nude photos deleted. Selena Gomez has more followers than any other star on Instagram, second after the Official Instagram account.

The photos were the same images that were published after Bieber’s 2015 Bora Bora trip when Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez were a couple. Bieber had told Access Hollywood in 2015 that the publication of the censored images on New York Daily News and the uncensored pictures that were scattered online made him feel super violated, and he felt like he couldn’t step outside.

According to The Hollywood Gossip, the hackers posted the pictures on Selena’s wall, captioned the explicit photo with lewd comments about the “Sorry” hit maker, and boasted about their hacking abilities. They also went ahead to encourage the users to follow their three Instagram accounts which had a few posts and several thousand followers.

The accounts were suspended, and the handles kept away from public view. They are now under investigation.

None of them has talked about the issue

Neither Bieber nor Gomez has commented about the situation. It was not the first time that Bieber has been exposed, and it looks like the hackers won’t stop. Some people can argue that as a celebrity, you don't have digital privacy in the 21st century. Many celebrities have been hacked, their nudes posted online for everyone to see and suffered the humiliation but the authorities are left with the task to track down the hackers.

Rumors of Gomez dating Bieber circulated in 2010 before they appeared at the Vanity Fair Oscar party together in 2011, and confirmed they were in a relationship. Selena Gomez is currently dating “Reminder” singer, The Weeknd. Let's wait and see how this will unfold.
