10 Things You Didn't Know About Melissa Benoist

5. She Was A Victim Of 4Chan's Nude Leaks

Back at the end of August last year, hundreds of pictures of celebrities (mostly nude women) were released on the website 4chan, in what was dubbed by the media as 'The Fappening'. The victims of the leak include the likes of Jennifer Lawrence, Kate Upton, Kirsten Dunst, Kaley Cuoco, and - as you've probably guessed by the heading and the fact it's getting a mention in this article - Melissa Benoist.
