METALLICA lead guitarist Kirk Hammett has reportedly become the latest celebrity to fall victim to an apparent leaked nude photos scandal. Highly personal and private photographs from his mobile phone were posted on several celebrity gossip websites yesterday.
Celebrities and nude photo scandals seem to go hand-in-hand. The 55-year-old guitarist’s nude photos were leaked online through hacked phone on Wednesday (August 8, 2018) and spread across the internet like wildfire. “The FBI is aware of the alleged hacking incident and is looking into it,” an FBI official confirmed.
Rock journalist, Randy “Rocket” Cody, comments:
“I saw the photos and thought I was looking at an old nude 80s photo set of Cher. When it dawned on me they were actually risqué pics of the Metallica shredder, I became sick to my stomach.”
The editor of an American celebrity gossip magazine defended its use of the photos, citing there was “a clear public interest in publishing the Kirk Hammett pictures, in order for the debate around them to be fully informed.”
WARNING: the following pictures may not be suitable for younger or sensitive viewers.
