Hollywood lawyer Marty Singer is representing more than a dozen female celebrities who were affected by ‘the fappening.’ Privately taken nude photos of the celebs were hacked from private accounts and posted on the bulletin board website 4chan. Singer, who has a successful track record regarding such cases – he forced Gawker to take down a sex tape of Eric Dane (Dr. McSteamy on Grey’s Anatomy) – sent a strongly worded letter to Google’s Larry Page and Sergey Brin. Google might seem an unusual target, since the photos were reportedly stolen from Apple’s iCloud.
Singer believes Google had the power to stop the fappening from going viral by amending the search results it delivered about the celebrity photos. The letter accuses Google of knowing the “images are hacked stolen property, private and confidential photos and videos unlawfully obtained and posted by pervert predators who are violating the victims’ privacy rights… Yet Google has taken little or no action to stop these outrageous violations. Google is making millions and profiting from the victimization of women…” When not representing female fappening victims, attorney Singer comes to the defense of leading men including Quentin Tarantino, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Sylvester Stallone and Charlie Sheen.
