The Guy That Made ‘The Fappening’ Happen Has Finally Been Caught

Just about two years is how long it took for the guy behind The Fappening to get apprehended. If you don’t remember the fiasco that basically broke the internet for a few days here’s a short recap. Basically celebs like Jennifer Lawrence, Kaley Cuoco, Kim K, Kate Upton, Gigi Hadid, and many more women were hacked and their nude photos were released to the world. It was quite a time to be alive.

Well, Ryan Collins, 36, was the mastermind behind the whole thing.

Here’s what David Bowdich, the Assistant Director in Charge of the FBI’s Los Angeles Field Office had to say:

By illegally accessing intimate details of his victims’ personal lives, Mr. Collins violated their privacy and left many to contend with lasting emotional distress, embarrassment and feelings of insecurity.

Collins has already pleaded guilty and is looking at 18 months and five years in prison.
