We're used to reporting on porn companies that offer money to have celebrities take their clothes off for them.

In this case, an online "adult television network" is bucking the trend. It wants to help find the hacker who grabbed personal nude photos of Jennifer Lawrence and other celebrities from the cloud and then apparently posted them for the world to see.

The adult network, appropriately named SkweezMe.com, said over the holiday weekend that it was offering "a sizable cash reward" for information leading to the apprehension of the hacker responsible for the leak:

The hack saw nude or compromising photos of Lawrence, Kate Upton, Ariana Grande, Hayden Panettiere, Hilary Duff, Selena Gomez, Kirsten Dunst, Mary Elizabeth Winstead and others posted to the site 4chan. 

The photos were reportedly taken from the celebrities' iCloud accounts, which can be set to automatically back up images and other data from users' iPhones.

The FBI and Apple are investigating the hack. Lawrence issued a statement Monday:

This is a flagrant violation of privacy. The authorities have been contacted and will prosecute anyone who posts the stolen photos of Jennifer Lawrence.

SkweezMe.com says that while it happily shares content of people who consent to having their nudity broadcast, this is a different story. The site's co-founder, Mike Kulich, says:

Although SkweezMe.com is a site that offers Adult Entertainment, we offer content that involves women that sign on to be seen naked by the world. Consent is the most important value of the adult business. What was executed by this individual is not only illegal, but shameful and we want this person brought to justice.

Kulich said "a very generous cash reward" was awaiting the person who comes forward first with info leading to the hacker. He said the info would be forwarded to authorities.
