Former celebrity couple Tiger Woods and Lindsey Vonn are among the latest to fall victim to hacks and leaked nude photos being published online and their lawyer is vowing to go after the sites who don’t take them down.

Attorney Michael Holtz, who is representing both Woods and Vonn, told the Minneapolis Star-Tribune that the couple is going to pursue legal action “swiftly and vigorously” against sites who ignore their order to removed the stolen photos.

We have issued takedown notices to various websites who have posted the illegally hacked photos of our clients,” Holtz told the Star-Tribune. “Almost all sites have complied or will comply with our demand… [if any sites persist in keeping the photos online] we will pursue legal action against them swiftly and vigorously.”

A spokesperson for Vonn also released a statement to the Star-Tribune, calling the hack “an outrageous and despicable invasion of privacy.”

“It is an outrageous and despicable invasion of privacy for anyone to steal and illegally publish private, intimate photos. Lindsey will take all necessary and appropriate legal action to protect and enforce her rights and interests.

“She believes the individuals responsible for hacking her private photos, as well as the websites that encourage this detestable conduct, should be prosecuted to the fullest extent under the law.”

Holtz went on to compare this incident to “The Fappening” in 2014, as he noted that other celebrities were hacked and had their stolen photos posted online.
