The third wave of leaked celebrity nudes has been deemed a letdown.

Part 3 of “The Fappening” was rumored to be happening over the weekend but never really took place, leading to users on Reddit, 4chan, and other websites to deem the latest leaks insignificant as they wait for another big load to drop.

Photos of Anna Kendrick and supermodel Cara Delevingne were included in the hack. Also, new photos of Jennifer Lawrence were included in the leak, with download links posted on several websites.

The first wave of pictures saw, among others, dozens of images of Kate Upton and Lawrence hit the web, while the second wave included the likes of Hope Solo, Vanessa Hudgens, and Emily Browning.

The third wave was rumored to feature primarily male celebrities, few of which have been targeted in the massive hack.

But other than a few pictures that allegedly show Omarion nude, no male pictures seem to have surfaced (the only other male seems to be Justin Verlander, who was pictured with Upton several times initially).

Instead, a smattering of pictures emerged showing actresses and others much less notable than what users were looking forward to, prompting many to say that part 3 actually hasn’t happened yet.

There’s also been a video subject to debate, that claims to show there’s a horde of unreleased pictures out there, including the likes of Taylor Swift, Courtney Cox, Selena Gomex, Oprah, and Beyonce.

Since the leaks typically happen on Fridays or weekends, a third wave–if it is happening–likely won’t take place until next weekend at the earliest.
