Bella Thorne has responded to a hacker allegedly stealing intimate photos of her by posting the images herself to Twitter.
The bisexual actor, singer and model, 21, says she was posting the photos as she refused to be intimidated by the stranger.
‘Fuck u and the power u think you have over me,’ she said in an angry tweet posted Saturday. It included screenshots of messages she had received from the alleged hacker. The images also included the person’s phone number.
