Gabrielle Union is lashing out after nude photos of her were leaked online on Saturday, calling the hacking a “hate crime.”

As reported earlier by Gossip Cop — which will not be posting the photos — pictures of Union posing for selfies in a bathroom were posted on platforms including Twitter, Reddit and 4chan.

Now, the actress and her husband Dwyane Wade are speaking out.

In a statement, the couple says, “Our private moments, that were shared and deleted solely between my husband and myself, have been leaked by some vultures,” adding, “I can’t help but to be reminded that since the dawn of time women and children, specifically women of color, have been victimized, and the power over their own bodies taken from them. These atrocities against women and children continue worldwide.”

Other stars who were seemingly hacked over the weekend include, Kim Kardashian, Vanessa Hudgens and Hayden Panettiere.

And Union and Wade feel bad for them, as well.

They say in their statement: “For anyone out there also being affected by these and other hacking and hate crimes — We send our love, support and prayers. We have done nothing wrong.”

This new leak comes three weeks after a massive hacking of celebrity nude pictures exposed the private pics of dozens of female stars.

Union’s name appeared on the so-called “master list” of hacking targets, although her pictures had not emerged at the time.

She’s reportedly also having the FBI investigate.
