Bella Throne is ‘displeased and saddened’ by recent comments Whoopi Goldberg made about her.
In case you missed it, actress Bella Thorne decided to release her own nude photos on Twitter after being threatened by a hacker who said he would.
The 21-year-old explained that she felt that it was the only way to take control of the situation.
“I can sleep better tonight knowing I took my power back… Here’s the photos he’s been threatening me with, in other words here’s my boobies,” she said in a lengthy Twitter post.
While many of Bella’s fans applauded her for her bold move in the face of a difficult situation, Whoopi Golberg thought quite the opposite.
The actress who is a panellist on The View criticised Bella for taking the photos in the first place.
“If you’re famous, I don’t care how old you are. You don’t take nude pictures of yourself,” she said on Monday’s show.

“When they are hacking you, they are hacking all of your stuff. So whether it’s one picture or a million pictures, once you take that picture, it goes into the cloud and it’s available to any hacker who wants it and if you don’t know that in 2019, that is an issue. I’m sorry. Your age does not… you don’t get to do that. You don’t get to do it.”
Bella was pretty hurt by the comments and took to Instagram to hit out at Whoopi for her response to the story.
“Dear Whoopi, I have loved you for so long but honestly I’m so displeased and saddened by your response to my leak. Blaming girls for taking the photo in the first place? Is sick and honestly disgusting,” she wrote in a letter. “I’m offended for anyone out there who has ever taken a sexy photo. I am offended for Jennifer Lawrence who feels publicly raped.
I am offended for every person who has committed suicide for someone leaking their nudes. Ur view on this matter is honestly awful and I hope u change ur mindset as u are a show talking to young girls,” she said in a note on her stories.
She then explained that she is no longer going to appear on the show, as she doesn’t “feel like being beaten down by a bunch of older women.”
Bella then uploaded some tearful videos in which she labelled Whoopi ‘crazy’ and ‘disgusting’.
“I’m not going to lie, I want to say I feel pretty disgusting, Whoopi, knowing everyone’s seen my shit. And I just want to say that me watching this interview made me feel really bad about myself and I hope you’re happy. I really do,” Bella shared through tears. “I really hope you’re so fucking happy because I can only imagine all the kids who have their shit released and then they commit suicide. So, you’re so crazy for thinking such terrible things on such an awful situation,” she said with tears in her eyes.
She added: “Shame on you, Whoopi. Shame on you and shame on you for putting that public opinion just out there like that for every young girl to think that they’re disgusting for even taking a photo like that.”
