Chad "Ochocinco" Johnson is serious about getting that scandalous sex tape off the Internet. His attorneys are sending cease and desist letters to websites posting clips and stills from the video, allegedly stolen from Johnson's hacked cell phone.
TMZ reports that the two sites that originally posted clips from the tape -- including WorldStarHipHop -- have already pulled the content, and any sites that don't comply with the request will face legal action.

A hacker was recently sentenced to 10 years in prison for leaking personal material of celebrities including Scarlett Johansson and Mila Kunis.
