Someone Put Nude Photos On Jennifer Lawrence's Wikipedia Page

Jennifer Lawrence's Wikipedia page was illicitly modified on Tuesday, the same day her first official statement on the nude photo hack hit the web.

According to Jezebel, "the page's featured photo briefly alternated between two of her nude photos." At the time of this writing, the page looks to be fixed, with the illicit photo only live for a reported 20 minutes.
Earlier today, Vanity Fair released snippets of their upcoming J.Lawr cover story, which features her comments on the celebrity photo scandal that dominated late-summer headlines.
"Just because I’m a public figure, just because I’m an actress, does not mean that I asked for this. It does not mean that it comes with the territory," Lawrence said. "It is a sex crime."
A similar event occurred recently after Emma Watson spoke out about gender equality at the U.N. Not long after her speech went viral, a website emerged that threatened the release of nude photos featuring Watson. While the threat proved to be an elaborate hoax, it also made it abundantly clear that women who decide to stand up for themselves face further intimidation.
The good news is that what happened to Watson in no way deterred Lawrence from lashing out against those responsible for stealing and disseminating her private photos. And, we doubt today's incident will, either. (Jezebel)
