Ricky Gervais joked about the massive celebrity nude photo leak on Monday, and faced immediate backlash.

After dozens of Hollywood stars were hacked and their private pictures circulated, the actor and comedian tweeted, “Celebrities, make it harder for hackers to get nude pics of you from your computer by not putting nude pics of yourself on your computer.”

The message has since been deleted, but not before countless Twitter followers and outlets slammed Gervais for appearing to blame the victims. He defended himself against charges that he was siding with the hackers.

What do you think? Was Gervais’ original point fair, or was he totally out of line?
