This past weekend was one of those times where people remember exactly what they were doing when they first heard the news. Like our parents and the Kennedy shooting or Team USA bitch-slapping the communists in the 1980 Winter Olympics, our generation will forever be linked to the event that is “The Fappening.”
Plenty of you degenerates have reached out to us here at TFM, asking when exactly we would cover this Earth-shattering occurrence. Yes, we’ve seen the pictures, and no, we aren’t posting them. Though we love you assholes, it’s not worth lawyering up.
If you really want to see the photos, just dig deep into the darkest corners of the Internet. Or, you can apparently just go to an art show right outside of Tampa.
From USA Today:
Cory Allen Contemporary Art announced that Los Angeles-based artist XVALA will include the pictures — unaltered and life-size — in an upcoming art gallery in St. Petersburg, Fla., as part of his “Fear Google” campaign.The upcoming show, opening Oct. 30, will be titled “No Delete,” and will also include seven years worth of other leaked images of celebrities “in their most vulnerable and private moments, that were comprised by either hackers or the paparazzi,” according to a press release.
The artist has been using celebrity images as art for years, including a portrait of Britney Spears with her shaved head and nude images of Scarlett Johansson.
“The commentary behind this show is a reflection of who we are today. We all become ‘users’ and in the end, we become ‘used’,” said publicist Cory Allen.
Now, I do my fair share of banking in on the misfortune of others, but this is an entirely different stratosphere of sleazy. Fuck this guy and fuck his publicist. Just say what you’re really doing: cashing in on a quick buck. Don’t give me this bullshit pretense about being “used.”
Naked selfies are not art–otherwise, my ex-girlfriend would be the Mona Lisa.
