Actress Bella Thorne is in her feelings after The View co-host Whoopi Goldberg criticized her for taking nude photos of herself.
In an attempt to regain control after a hacker threatened to publicize her explicit photos, the former Disney Channel star took matters into her own hands and released them via Twitter on Saturday, stating that it was her decision to share them.
“If you’re famous, I don’t care how old you are. You don’t take nude photos of yourself,” Goldberg said on Monday’s episode of The View. “If you don’t know this in 2019, that this is an issue, I’m sorry ... You cannot be surprised if someone’s hacked you, especially if you have stuff on your phone.”
Thorne promptly responded by going to her Instagram and slamming The View host for expressing her opinion on the situation.
“Shame on you. I just want to say that me watching this video made me feel really bad about myself ... You’re so crazy for thinking such terrible things on such an awful situation.”
She then went on to say she would cancel her upcoming appearance on the daytime talk show and hoped that Goldberg would have a change of heart since young women watch The View.
Thorne also reposted her followers’ comments about Goldberg on her Instagram story.
While many on Twitter sympathize with the Shake It Up star, others are siding with Goldberg’s real-talk, no-chaser message.

If you're a famous person and don't want your nudes leaked, don't take them. Not shaming or excuses the actions of hackers, it's just reality. 🤷🏾♂️ pic.twitter.com/0CyAC1ExoM
