Two of Jennifer Lawrence's leaked nude images were posted on her Wikipedia page on Tuesday night. The pictures, however, were also deleted within 20 minutes of getting posted.

This incident, perhaps, comes as a retaliation from the side of the hackers after Lawrence broke her silence on October 7 about the 'sexual violation' that she and other celebs endured, in an interview in Vanity Fair’s November issue.

"It is not a scandal. It is a sex crime," Lawrence said in the interview. "I was just so afraid. I didn’t know how this would affect my career," she said about her stolen-photos saga.

"Just because I'm a public figure, just because I'm an actress, does not mean that I asked for this," she told the magazine, which will be available online on Wednesday.

The Oscar winning actor is one of the many celebrity victims of the latest image-hacking scandal which also targeted Kim Kardashian, Rihanna, Cara Delevingne, Victoria Justice, Kirsten Dunst, Kate Upton and Ariana Grande.

A feminist blog, Jezebel reported that the account was not associated with any Wikipedia editors, but was rather a sock puppet – a fake page made to look like it’s legitimate.

The images were originally posted on imageboard website 4chan in August this year.
