It has been two years since Bella Thorne’s Twitter was hacked, and the authorities have now arrested her hacker. This individual broke into her Twitter account, posted suspicious content, and even threatened to leak her nude photos. After two years of backlash, the hacker has now been arrested.

On July 21, Thorne posted on Instagram that the FBI has now arrested the person who hacked her Twitter. Alongside the photo, Thorne also shared a long caption about her comfort levels since the hacking, and her opinion on women sharing their bodies.

“I want to thank the FBI for searching tirelessly for the person who made my life and others a living hell. I have felt violated many times in my life, but I thought I didn’t have a way out, so I made a choice. My choice,” she wrote. “A choice I didn’t want to make but felt I had to because I wouldn’t spend another day feeling someone was taking away from me my body, my soul, my mental health, and my love and hope for the world.”

New Found Comfort in Her Body

Thorne made sure to speak on women’s comfort in their bodies in the caption of her post. The majority of the backlash she received after she was hacked was in regard to how she chooses to take nude photos:

“For all the people who think because a woman is comfortable with their body and how they portray themselves that they are “asking for it, “for the people who think “she deserves it” because she was there or had a beer in her hand or wore a short skirt, and for the people that think because she took the photo she deserves to be humiliated with it – and she deserves for everyone to look at it and inscribe every piece and bit of her in their mind. Or because she took the photo, she deserves that one moment to follow her, taunt her for the rest of her life through every waking moment. To those who made those remarks, they were disgusting. I hope you feel disgusting. To those few people. Sincerely f*** you.”

As many know, since this incident occurred in 2019, Thorne has not shied away from posting explicit photos on the internet. She found power in sharing her own nude photos after the hacker attack. And she is now a giant advocate for women feeling comfortable in their own skin.

She has made millions off of the website, Only Fans, and will probably never look back at the time before she was sharing these photos.

Whoopi Goldberg Attacks Thorne on ‘The View’

Even though the hacking itself looked pretty bad for Thorne, her attempt to gain her power back made her look worse in 2019. To gain her power back she decided to post her nude photos, herself. Thorne did this to threaten the hacker. But, it ended up becoming so much more than her “taking her power back” once Whoopi Goldberg commented on the topic.

“If you’re famous…You don’t take nude pictures of yourself. When they’re hacking you they’re hacking all of your stuff,” said Goldberg. “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… I’m sorry your age is not an issue, you don’t get to do that”

Thorne was 21 at the time. After the backlash she wrote a lengthy letter to Goldberg on Twitter. She expressed that she meant no disrespect, but her comment about blaming the girl for taking the photo in the first place is disgusting.

Thorne then posted a series of videos of her talking on Instagram story about how she felt uncomfortable and disgusting. She also commented on how she was supposed to be interviewed by The View, and would be canceling her interview.

Thorne was not this hackers only victim. They hacked over 130 accounts, including politicians, celebrities, and companies. So, it’s great to see them behind bars on multiple counts.
