Celeb Hack Victims Threaten To Sue Google For $100M

An unspecified number of celebrity nude photo hack victims are looking to sue Google for capitalizing on the scandal rather than eliminating it.

Lawyers representing some of the victims are threatening to sue Google for $100M for their failure to remove stolen images, and instead, profiting from their advertising revenue.

The celebrity hacking scandal, being called on the biggest in history, involved a list stars Rihanna, Amber Heard, Jennifer Lawrence, and dozens of others.

Hollywood lawyer Marty Singer, who represents some of the hacking victims, sent a letter to Google founders Larry Page and Sergey Brin comparing their lack of action to the NFL leadership after the Ray Rice domestic abuse incident.

In the letter, obtained by Page Six, Singer writes, "Because the victims are celebrities with valuable publicity rights you do nothing - nothing but collect millions of dollars in advertising revenue ... as you seek to capitalize on this scandal rather than quash it."

Singer claims to have sent a notice to Google weeks ago demanding the photos be removed, but many still remain online.
