Actress Bella Thorne took to Instagram Stories on Tuesday, sharing videos of herself in tears in response to comments Whoopi Goldberg made about her on The View.
While discussing Bella Thorne’s decision to release nude photos of herself in order to take her “power back” after an alleged hacker got a hold of them, Goldberg wasn’t exactly on the former Disney star’s side.
On Monday’s episode of “The View,” things got heated when Goldberg and her fellow co-hosts were discussing the actress’ decision to release her own nudes after she says a hacker threatened to blast them out.
“If you’re famous, I don’t care how old you are, don’t take nude pictures of yourself,” Goldberg said. “When they’re hacking you, they’re 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 for any hacker that wants it. If you don’t know that in 2019, that this is an issue … You cannot be surprised that someone has hacked you, especially if you have stuff on your phone. That’s why they’re hacking you.”
In response, Bella Thorne wrote “shame on you” over a screenshot of an article recapping Tuesday’s episode of the talk show. “I was supposed to be on The View but honestly I don’t feel like being beaten down by a bunch of older women for my body and my sexuality,” she explained.
“I just want to say that me watching this interview made me feel really bad about myself,” a very emotional Thorne admitted. “I hope you’re happy. I really do. I really hope you’re so f**king happy because I can only imagine all of the kids who have their s**t released and then they commit suicide.”
“You’re so crazy for thinking such terrible things on such an awful situation,” she continued, claiming she was going to cancel her appearance on The View. “I don’t really want you guys talking about your views to young girls. I would not want my [future] daughter learning that and I would never say that to her. OK, I’m done.”
