Olympic gymnast McKayla Maroney has confirmed that the nude pics of her leaked during Sunday’s massive hack scandal are real … and that she was underage when they were taken.
Maroney made the revelation via her attorneys, who have fired off letters to porn sites who uploaded the naked photos warning them to take them down or face lawsuit.
The 18-year old gymnast – famous for her ‘not impressed’ facial expression during the 2012 Olympics – previously denied on Twitter that the nude photos were real:
the fake photos of me are crazy!! was trying to rise above it all, and not give "the creator" the time of day.. BUT.. pic.twitter.com/hceQcOxYkJ

The reality that Maroney may have been underage when the nude pics were taken was first realized by Reddit moderators, who quickly instructed users not to post them anymore ‘cos it will constitute child pornography.
