Comedian Whitney Cummings posted on Twitter Monday that some social media users were trying to extort her for money by threatening to release a screenshot of a topless photo she accidentally posted on Instagram in April.

"When a woman in the public eye is extorted, we have to spend time, money and energy dealing with it, hiring lawyers and security experts, and living with a pit in our stomach about when and how we will be humiliated,'' she wrote on Twitter.

 "Y’all can have my nipple, but not my time or money anymore."

"In April I accidentally posted an insta story that showed nipple,'' she wrote. "Once I realized, I deleted. The people who took screen grabs are trying to get money from me, some said they have offers to sell them, some are asking for money to not post the photo."

She then posted the picture of the nipple slip.
