Victoria Justice voiced her anger over a "massive invasion of privacy" after nude pictures purporting to be her surfaced online

"Shortly after I tweeted about certain pics of me being fake, I was faced with a serious violation of privacy," she wrote online. "There have always been fake photos of me on the Internet, but I will not be put in the position to defend myself as to what is real or what is fake."

"I am angry at this massive invasion of privacy," she continued. "Like the other women who are in this situation alongside of me, I am taking legal action to protect my rights."

Justice previously addressed the fabricated pictures on her social media accounts. "These so called nudes of me are FAKE people," she tweeted on Sunday. "Let me nip this in the bud right now. *pun intended*"

As previously reported, the FBI and Apple announced they planned to investigate the massive photo leak, which included nude pictures of Jennifer Lawrence, Kate Upton, Mary Winstead and Ariana Grande. The hackers reportedly stole the pictures from the Apple iCloud accounts of the affected celebrities. 

"We take user privacy very seriously, and are actively investigating this report," a spokesperson for Apple said in a statement.

Justice joined countless other celebrities who have spoken out about the incident. The Spectacular Now actress Mary Winstead addressed the controversy on her social media pages. "Knowing those photos were deleted long ago, I can only imagine the creepy effort that went into this," she wrote. "Feeling for everyone who got hacked."
