McKayla Maroney

I Was Underage in Hacked Nude Pics

EXCLUSIVE

Olympic gymnast McKayla Maroney says she was under 18 when the hacked nude photos of her were taken ... and now she's taking legal action against several porn sites that reposted the images.

TMZ has learned one of Maroney's attorneys fired off a letter to Porn.com ... informing the site that McKayla was underage in several of the photos. The letter demands the images of McKayla -- who turned 18 last December -- be taken down immediately.

Another attorney for the gymnast sent a different letter to multiple websites stating Maroney owns the copyright on the hacked photos.

The legal claims by her attorneys are a strong indication the photos really do show McKayla -- even though she said on Twitter they were "fake photos." It's also possible only portions of the images are really McKayla. The letter is not specific.

A rep for Porn.com tells us they immediately removed the pics once they got the letter from Maroney's attorney.

What a wonderful world we live in now with technology. I hope young woman and teens and even pre-teens think TWICE before taking provocative pictures of themselves . The only way you can prevent this nightmare for so many., and I can just imagine down the road for many of them, when they have gone thru this phase and are looking for careers and wanting a husband and becoming a mother...how this habit will come back and haunt them. Just don't do it!

I'm disappointed so many people are blaming the victims.
Maybe the age of the person in the photos should be verified by porn sites BEFORE posting nude photos that were illegally obtained. I hope they're all charged with child pornography distribution.

The problem here is that she could be charged with distributing child porn by showing the photos off to people and them ending up in the public eye.
