In the wake of his nude photos scandal, Dylan Sprouse took to his Tumblr to write a lengthy post and explain what really went on.
Dylan who, unlike other Disney stars who have had leaked photos, opened up about the whole thing and admitted the blunder as soon as the nude pics were leaked for the entire world to see, wrote a very well-written post and shared his thoughts on the scandal and all the buzz created by the photos.
He even gave Beyonce a shout-out so go ahead and check it out!
“First off, I will state that the reason I’m making light of the situation is because I don’t think what I did was wrong. To be blunt, I was proud of my progress in the gym, thought I looked hot, and wanted to share it. I’m of the mindset that whoever you are, if you are proud of your body and want to show it off, so be it! You do you. There is an odd taboo with the human form (especially in the USA) and I don’t particularly think its a good thing to teach people that you should “hide yourself” as something incredibly sacred. Blah blah blah, that’s a medieval notion,” Dylan began.
The Disney star continued: “Secondly, the real problem here was not me sending my pictures to someone, but rather, sending them to the WRONG someone. The real travesty is a misplaced trust, and while I am certainly to blame for it, it is a shame that my private life was somehow forcibly dragged into the public’s perception of me. What is wrong is that, generally I try to stay cool and collected with my prose and a role model for kids (maybe not anymore shamefully) and this seemingly inconsequential act will likely affect the youth’s impression of me. Not only that, but I worry somewhat for my artistic integrity, and my academic integrity. Not exactly ideal, but I’m to blame and I’ll look this incident in the eye like a man. I did it, but I’d be damned if I didn’t own that shit like Beyonce would want me to.”
“Finally though, and I think that this is the most important part, because of this, I gained 200,000 followers on twitter, 40,000 followers on tumblr, and 20,000 followers on instagram…. It seems to me that the majority of people are actually praising this act as some sort of device to receive fame (or infamy). Why? I have no clue, I don’t entirely condone it though. I’ll make it clear my intent was for this not to happen, and how it has affected me so positively is an enigma to me that rings true of the human condition. Maybe people just like to see others mess up? I’m German by blood, so I feel you on that,” he added.
It’s great to see that he has a good attitude towards this whole thing and that he took it like a man and owned it like Queen Bey would want him to. That very Sasha Fierce of him!
He’s also making fun of the whole thing and posted a mockup of a T-shirt with one of the nudes printed on it. You can see it on his Tumblr.
He also tweeted this:
