The Prostate Cancer Foundation will not accept money from Reddit users who chose to donate after viewing naked photos of Jennifer Lawrence.

A forum on the popular social media site encouraged users who clicked on the personal and provocative images to give to the charity "in honor of Jennifer Lawrence."

Donations quickly reached more than $6,000 online. The foundation, however, later announced that they want nothing to do with the money.

"A Reddit user directed other Reddit users to make a donation to the Prostate Cancer Foundation without the Foundation's knowledge," the philanthropic organization said in a statement. "We would never condone raising funds for cancer research in this manner."

The statement concluded, "Out of respect for everyone involved and in keeping with our own standards, we are returning all donations that results from this post."

Naked and scantily-clad pictures resembling Lawrence, Kate Upton and other stars surfaced online Sunday. The FBI announced they were currently "addressing" the alleged hacking of several female stars.

"This is a flagrant violation of privacy," Lawrence's rep told E! News in a statement. "The authorities have been contacted and will prosecute anyone who posts the stolen photos of Jennifer Lawrence."

Lena Dunham, Cameron Diaz, Jason Segel and Emma Watson are just some of the celebrities who have voiced their support for the stars involved with the massive hacking.
