Since the celebrity hacking scandal brought stars' private photos to the mainstream, is paparazzi not necessary anymore? According to one comedian, maybe.
Daniel Tosh of Tosh.0 took to Twitter last week and said that thanks to the hackers, "paparazzi are now irrelevant."
thanks to the hackers, paparazzi are now irrelevant. seeing stars buy a cup of coffee isn’t as exciting as seeing their butthole.

The hacking scandal really came to the forefront of the news cycle, when photos of Hunger Games star Jennifer Lawrence were leaked online. Lawrence recently spoke out on the case to Vanity Fair magazine.
"Every single thing that I tried to write made me cry or get angry. I started to write an apology, but I don't have anything to say I'm sorry for. I was in a loving, healthy, great relationship for four years," Lawrence said (via E!). "It was long distance, and either your boyfriend is going to look at porn or he's going to look at you."
Lawrence continued to say that what happened to her and other celebs like Kate Upton and Amber Heard isn't a sex scandal, but a sex crime. "The law needs to be changed, and we need to change. That's why these websites are responsible," she continued. "Just the fact that somebody can be sexually exploited and violated, and the first thought that crosses somebody's mind is to make a profit from it. It's so beyond me. I just can't imagine being that detached from humanity. I can't imagine being that thoughtless and careless and so empty inside."
