Massive celebrity nudes leak just happened on 4chan is a thread made on the 1st of September, 2014 in Sensationalist Headlines.[1] It was created to bring Facepunch the news of the 2014 celebrity pictures hack, and is notable for having one of the highest concurrent viewer counts ever recorded on Facepunch: the thread peaked at around 14K viewers.

Content

The thread consists of several pages of celebrities' nudes, as leaked on 4chan[2] and discussed on Reddit.[3] The content in the thread was updated as rapidly as the leaks were released, and consists of discussions on the morality of viewing the photos, discussion about the responsibility and security of storing data on cloud services, discussion on which leaks the users were the most excited about, and also posts and links to the leaked photos themselves. After several pages of posts commenting on the high number of people viewing the thread, a mod appended "Shuddap about how many people are viewing this thread" to the end of its title.
