Gossip Cop first reported a recent nude photo hack from Rose McGowan's private photos. According to the report, hackers targeted McGowan and allegedly released photos and a sex tape online. The Charmed actress is not to be trifled with, though, and is ready to pursue legal action to its full extent. We know this because Gossip Cop also reported that McGowan stated she would be taking legal action with the Department of Justice.


McGowan posted a warning on Twitter early Sunday morning: a photo of herself wearing a sequined mask, only her eyes exposed, along with the tweet, "Hey little hacker boys, Mama is coming and she hits hard." This warning and possible legal move could be the beginning of a major lawsuit that could put an end to repeated waves of attacks on the privacy of female celebrities. It's also right in line with McGowan's very publicly avowed feminist practices, further leaving one inclined to believe her heart is in the right place.

McGowan is not the first and she is unlikely to be the last female celebrity to fall victim to hackers wreaking havoc and distributing intimate, private photos and videos for public consumption. Recently, Analeigh Tipton, Amanda Seyfried and Emma Watson have all fallen victim to nude photo leaks. Watson, like McGowan, is promising to take serious legal action against the hackers. Although it is wholly unfortunate that these leaks happened, it is great to see that permanent, feminist action is being sought to protect the rights of women.
