UPDATE: 9:20 p.m. ET: A number of Twitter accounts posting uncensored photos of Jennifer Lawrence pictured nude have been suspended. When contacted by Mashable, a Twitter spokesperson would not offer comment on the deletion of the accounts in relation to the stolen images, but did point us to the service's rules page.

Additionally, a spokesperson for Ariana Grande has reportedly denied the authenticity of the nude images of the singer included in the list of hacked celebrities being leaked online, calling the photos "completely fake," in an email to BuzzFeed.

A major trove of celebrity images, some including images alleged to be actress Jennifer Lawrence nude, began spreading all over the web and Twitter on Sunday evening.

Early word of the images began spreading on 4Chan earlier in the day, where posters claimed that the images were the result of a hacker intrusion on a number of iCloud accounts and cell phones and that the images included nude celebrities such as Victoria Justice, Emily Browning, Kate Bosworth, Jenny McCarthy and Kate Upton.

When contacted by Mashable, a spokesperson for Jennifer Lawrence issued the following statement:
This is a flagrant violation of privacy. The authorities have been contacted and will prosecute anyone who posts the stolen photos of Jennifer Lawrence.
In addition to Lawrence, these are the biggest names on the list posted to 4Chan of alleged victims of the iCloud leak:

Aly and AJ Michalka, Aubrey Plaza, Abby Elliott, Avril Lavigne, Amber Heard, Brie Larson, Candice Swanepoel, Cara Delevigne, Emily Ratjakowski, Farrah Abraham, Gabrielle Union, Hayden Pannettiere, Hope Solo, Hillary Duff, Jenny McCarthy, Kayley Cuoco, Kate Upton, Kate Bosworth, Keke Palmer, Kim Kardashian, Kirsten Dunst, Krysten Ritter, Lea Michele, Lizzy Caplan, Mary Kate Olsen, Mary Elizabeth Winstead, Rihanna, Scarlet Johansson, Selena Gomez, Vanessa Hudgens, Wynona Ryder, Alison Brie and Dave Franco.

Most of those named in the list haven't commented publicly, but actress Mary Elizabeth Winstead did take to Twitter to react to having her images taken in the hack:
However, at least one of the alleged victims of the hack has also taken to Twitter to dispute the authenticity of the images. Victoria Justice wrote via Twitter: "These so called nudes of me are FAKE people. Let me nip this in the bud right now. *pun intended*"
But contrary to the Twitter message from Justice, the above statement from Lawrence's spokesperson, as well as Winstead's comment, appear to confirm the authenticity of at least some of the images being circulated.
Apple didn't not offer an official response when contacted by Mashable for comment on the incident.
