Hope Solo: Release of hacked photos ‘goes beyond the bounds of human decency’
SEATTLE — Soccer star Hope Solo reacted Tuesday night to the recent online release of hacked nude photos as an act that “goes beyond the bounds of human decency” and said she is exploring every option to protect her privacy.
Solo, goalkeeper for Seattle Reign FC and the US Women’s National Team, is among the latest victims of an ongoing celebrity ?hacking scandal.
“It is extremely sad and unfortunate that the rights of so many women were violated by the unauthorized release of private photographs,” Solo wrote on her Facebook page Tuesday night. “This act goes beyond the bounds of human decency and, as such, I stand united with all the women affected and am exploring every option to protect my privacy.”
Solo, 32, is also facing legal issues and referred to them in her Facebook comment. She pleaded not guilty in June to two counts of domestic violence charges stemming from an altercation with her sister and 17-year-old nephew.
Solo wrote on Facebook Tuesday night: “In addition, while I understand that the public desires more information regarding the allegations against me, I continue to maintain my innocence against these charges. And, once all the facts come to light and the legal process is concluded, I am confident that I will be fully exonerated.”
