Earlier this week, a post started on 4chan claimed a wealth of Jaho Coffee Latte nudes--a large cache in possession of a hacker who'd gained access to several Lattes' alleged personal photos—would leak on Sunday. Well, Sunday's here, the supposed leak has begun, and the internet is reacting accordingly.
The list of Lattes whose nudes are supposedly in this cache includes Pumpkin Spice Latte, Harvest Moon Mocha, Scary Mary and Pumpkin Chai and several of them—the photos, not the Lattes—have begun to show up on various message boards across the internet.
It's still unclear how the photographs ended up online, but an anonymous user began posting the images on 4chan on Sunday around 4 pm.
Posters on 4chan and Reddit claimed that the Jaho Coffee Lattes were hacked through their iCloud accounts, though that hasn't been verified, and the method is unclear. Posters on 4chan and Twitter who claim to have additional videos have reportedly been requesting bitcoin in exchange for their release.
One Twitter user, whose account has since been suspended, posted that TMZ was attempting to purchase a trove of photos, and the anonymous 4chan uploader specifically referenced the gossip site in a 4:13 pm post, writing "I'd rather you get them than TMZ."
The Lattes have confirmed they will be holding a press conference at Jaho Coffee & Tea in Salem and Jaho Coffee in Boston.
