Disney star Dylan Sprouse has once again defended his explicit photos that went viral on social media earlier this month, saying teaching the people to be vigilant about their explication is an old-fashioned notion.
“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. There is an odd taboo with the human form and I don’t particularly think it’s a good thing to teach people that you should ‘hide yourself’ as something incredibly sacred. Blah blah blah, that’s a medieval notion,” Sprouse, a student of Art and Design at New York University, wrote on his personal blog on Monday.
Twitter left stunned on December 16 when a collection of 21-year-old’s full frontal photos wrapped up the internet. The star later confirmed the authenticity of photos but said they were not intended for the public and their revelation online was the result of a “misplaced trust” in the person to whom he had sent the snapshots.
Another set of photos, more explicit than the first one, leaked online on Saturday. One of the photos showed the unclothed star cupping his genitals while another frontal picture bared dampness on his chest and torso.
