The Main Suspect Blamed For The Jennifer Lawrence Nude Leak Says He Is Innocent
Bryan Hamade, a 27-year-old from Georgia, told BuzzFeed his scheme to make some easy bitcoins backfired and that now he’s being harassed by 4chan users.
As the online hunt for the persons responsible for yesterday’s massive celebrity nude photo leak continues, some Redditors and security researchers have pointed to Bryan Hamade, a 27-year-old from Lawrenceville, Georgia, as the culprit.
According to a post that’s circulating on the photo-sharing site Imgur, Hamade — who goes by the the username BluntMastermind — posted a screenshot of his computer to show off the leaked picture folder, accidentally exposing his hard drive and network drive. A few Redditors then went through Hamade’s previous Reddit posts and recognized the hard drive and PC name, outing Hamade as the one responsible for the original 4chan leaks.
