If people want to see nude photos of Kate Upton, going to Celeb Jihad isn’t going to turn up any successful results. Not after the star’s lawyer got involved, at least.
The Sports Illustrated model is reportedly none too happy after she found out that fake topless photos of her were being shopped around the Internet. The 21-year-old blonde bombshell reportedly wanted to teach the satire website, Celeb Jihad, a lesson.
The joke site is responsible for the fake nudes and, according to TMZ, the original headline read: "Kate Upton Naked Outtake From SI Swimsuit 2014.” Even though the pictures were clearly fake, according to TMZ, the model’s lawyers sent over a legal letter and threatened to sue if the post wasn’t taken down right away.
"One of these photographs has even been airbrushed,” the lawyer purportedly said. Celeb Jihad, which claims to be “The only celebrity gossip site run by Islamic extremists,” captioned the article with a new headline: “Kate Upton SI Swimsuit Issue 2014 Outtakes.”
Now that the faked nudes have been removed, the site added a GIF of the model getting out of a pool wearing only a white T-shirt, which clearly exposes her breasts. They added this disclaimer underneath: “*Photos removed by SI’s lawyers enjoy the Kate Upton GIF above instead.” They described the photo shoot as “boring” and “horrible.”
Upton, who’s pretty active on Twitter, hasn’t responded publicly to the photos on Celeb Jihad. Instead, she last posted a quote that says: “I’m not bossy. I have leadership skills.”
