Definition of #TheFappening and the Fappening Mess

Define Fappening : What Is The Fappening? It’s A Dirty Word combination of the word “What’s Happening” and “Fapping”. The word Fapping is a slang used by internet users who masturbate looking at dirty pictures on the internet.

What Is Fappening Now?


The Fappening has led to an active investigation by the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI), and various other law enforcement agencies. The event started when photos were uploaded to popular photo repository sites, including 4Chan’s anonymous image service, Imgur, and ultimately Reddit. The term, in less than 24 hours, spurred the popular subreddit /R/TheFappening and eventually led to the creation of a live Reddit broadcast of events at That live event as I previously reported, has spurred more than 100,000 real-time viewers.

The Fappening has also led to believe that female celebrities likes to make a “porn out of themselves” but are shy to admit it. Also since all the nude pictures are out in the internet and can be found on any search engines “for free” – it kind of makes no sense for celebrities who “sells” their image to make money.

What Is The Fappening on Reddit?

The Fappening refers to a massive internet upload of 2GB worth of naked female celebrity photos. Selena Gomez, Jennifer Lawrence. Ariana Grande, and dozens of other popular TV and movie stars are in the naked photo list.

What Is The Fappening: How It All Began

An unknown hacker reportedly gained access to the private photos by hacking the iCloud account of the celebrities iPhone. Several celebrities claim that they use Google Android devices, which means iCloud could be one of numerous services that were breached for the illegal event.

There was no warning that The Fappening was about to begin. The hacker did not request money for the photos or videos, instead choosing to anonymously upload photos in small batches. The first well known actress to receive exposure from the event was Jennifer Lawrence. Immediately following the release of her private nude photos, Lawrence threatened to sue any sites that took part in the event.

So what is The Fappening? It’s basically a waste of time, and a violation of privacy that will likely lead to a future arrest, and a long prison sentence for some unlucky hacker. Also it’s a great way for young female celebrities “to pretend” that it was a BAD THING that they are topping “Google Trends” worldwide because of the leaked naked photos they themselves took. It seems they are all “too shy’ to post it (in return for large sums of money) themselves in the first place! –

Now Playboy will not be making any of these celebrities “the million dollar offer” which Lindsay Lohan seems to be only lucky (and most clever) celebrity in this entire Fappening mess.
