The hacker then blackmailed her with the nude photos. Thorne then uploaded her own nudes online so that the hacker lost power over the situation.

On an episode of "The View" yesterday, the hosts of the show were discussing what happened to Bella Thorne. One of the hosts, Whoopi Goldberg, said, "I don't care how old you are, you don't take nude photos of yourself. Once you take that picture, it goes into the cloud and it's available to any hacker who wants it; and if you don't know that in 2019, that this is an issue. I'm sorry, you don't get to do that."

Is what Whoopi Goldberg said victim blaming?
