Recently, the news about the large celebrity-photo leak from the iCloud has been gaining plenty of momentum as more and more photos are released onto the internet.

One popular forum site – Reddit.com – has taken steps to insure that it will not be hosting the nude-leaks of the celebs on its pages: the site’s leadership has decided to suspend the services of the area the pictures were posted in.

Although Reddit has no official rules for the sharing of stolen materials, the site vaguely hinted that the reason for the ban was because of the illegal nature of the underage pictures of McKayla Maroney.

“While current US law does not prohibit linking to stolen materials, we deplore the theft of these images and we do not condone their widespread distribution,” said the administrators.
