Comedian Ricky Gervais received a Twitter tongue lashing after he joked about the scandal on the social media site.
“Celebrities, make it harder for hackers to get nude pics of you from your computer by not putting nude pics of yourself on the computer,” he wrote.
He later defended his comments. “Of course the hackers are 100% to blame but you can still makes jokes about it. Jokes don’t portray your true serious feelings on a subject,” he added.
But all the hand-wringing about violating privacy in Tinseltown hasn’t stopped the scandal from becoming fodder for late night jokesters.
“Nude and intimate photos of Jennifer Lawrence, Kate Upton and a lot of other females were posted on line over the weekend,” Kimmel said in his monologue last night (Sept. 3).
“I think you can judge how good or bad a person you are, based on how many seconds you wait to Google ‘Jenifer Lawrence nude’ after hearing the nude. Anything under 60 and you’re going to hell,” he said.
Kimmel called on Apple’s CEO to apologize in the nude.
Conan O’Brien also weighed in on the scandal.
“Celebrities still furious that hundreds of nude photos were leaked on line; huge story,” he said. “Well, today, I hate to be the one to break it to you, even more photos where hacked and released.”
“Some of the celebrity photos are really embarrassing; they could ruin careers,” he added ominously.
“Kim Kardashian is very embarrassed by this photo; check it out. She’s reading a book,” he deadpanned.
Tonight Show host Jimmy Fallon introduced himself as a “former iCloud user” during his monologue. “From now on, even my dog is wearing pants,” he proclaimed.
He not only goofed on the scandal but also took a shot at Kardashian.
“Over the weekend a hacker got into Apple’s iCloud and leaked several nude pictures of celebrities including Jennifer Lawrence and Kim Kardashian,” he said. “Jennifer wants to sue the hacker for damages, while Kim wants to pay the hacker for his troubles.”
David Letterman opened his monologue with a bit about President Obama and Russia’s invasion of the Ukraine, but teed up the scandal as his second item.
“Let’s look at celebrities NOT targeted by hackers,” he said opening his bit.
