They’re in her corner. Bella Thorne got a lot of support from fellow Disney stars and other celebrities after she leaked her own nude photos in order to expose a hacker who threatened to leak them. The star shared messages of support on Instagram from the likes of Dove Cameron, Lucy Hale, Serayah and more on June 19.
“When [your] friends come out of the woodworks to support [you] is all [you] need to be brave,” Bella, 21, wrote. “PART ONE and thank [you] @dovecameron for speaking up SO much on this matter and posting on your grid.”
She shared more messages in another Instagram update and continued, “All [you] need is support to be brave part two. @zendaya called me today to make sure I was OK, we talked a lot about this generation, the one before us as well, and how as women we shouldn’t feel bad about ourselves our bodies. Slut shaming is one of the biggest topics of this generation but yet we still keep going somehow. It’s really really sad. 🚫 the view 🚫.” (She was likely talking about Whoopi Goldberg’s negative comments on the situation, which she made on The View on June 17.)
Lucy, 30, wrote to Bella via an Instagram message that the former Shake It Up star took a screenshot of and shared, “Good for you baby girl. I’m so proud of you for speaking up. This breaks my heart. But you’re making a difference for other girls and women!”
Zendaya wrote in a text Bella shared in “part two” of the posts, “Just a reminder that you are strong and courageous and beautiful inside and out. You f–king broke my heart with that d–n IG post but anyway, just being a f–king sap right now LMAO just letting you know you’re a light and I’m super proud. Love you.”
Bella screenshot a tweet made by Dove, 23, as well that read, “Where is the support for young women? I love women. Everyone should love women. Don’t be an asshole! Sexuality is part of being HUMAN. But judgment and objectification is not. Ugh, I can’t handle to ugly.” She also specifically called out Whoopi and wrote, “Please, be better.” Bella is very lucky to have all these wonderful folks in her life who clearly have her back.
