The FBI is investigating who hacked and leaked nude photos of more than 100 well-known celebrities over the weekend, the Business Insider reports.

The hacker exposed the nude photos and videos using the internet forum 4chan. Some of the victims, including Academy Award winner Jennifer Lawrence, sparked the FBI investigation by calling law enforcement. Some of the photos may be fake, according to Business Insider.

“The FBI is aware of the allegations concerning computer intrusions and the unlawful release of material involving high profile individuals and is addressing the matter,” said a statement from the Los Angeles FBI. “Any further comment would be inappropriate at this time.”

Lawrence’s publicist lashed out at the invasion of privacy.

“This is a flagrant violation of privacy. The authorities have been contacted and will prosecute anyone who posts the stolen photos of Jennifer Lawrence,” said Liz Mahoney, publicist for Lawrence, in a statement.
