The Fappening was when on August 31, 2014, people hacked into Apple iCloud and released nudes of celebrities such as Jennifer Lawrence and McKayla Maroney. Why did this happen? Because Apple despite in 2015-2016 refusing to make a backdoor to hack a phone of the San Bernadino terrorist, does not care about user privacy or security. A fellow called Weev around 2009-2010 kept pestering Apple about their security flaws. Apple eventually didn't care and refused to fix things. When Weev publicly posted information on an exploit Apple refused to fix to pressure them, Apple then had the FBI destroy his home like terrorists, kidnap him, and have him tortured for two years. If Apple had not done this to Weev, he would've found the iCloud exploit and pressured Apple until they fix it.
