Disney star's naked selfie goes viral

2013-12-17 13:21
Los Angeles - It was supposed to be a scandal. Something that could possibly have ruined his career.

But instead, Dylan Sprouse’s nude selfie drama had the opposite effect.

The former Disney channel star best known for his role as Zack on The Suite Life of Zack & Cody caused a stir on social media this weekend when a naked selfie of the young star appeared on Tumblr.

The pictures — one a selfie of Dylan, 21, in boxer-briefs, the other of Dylan totally naked and showing everything — made their way onto Twitter when a former flame tweeted out the once-private pics, according to The Hollywood Gossip.

The pictures went viral in just minutes.

Whereas most stars would jump into damage control mode, or find some way to deny that they’ve been caught red-handed, Dylan owned up to the leaked pictures. He maybe even seemed a little proud, tweeting:

He later posted a blog entry about it all: “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,” Sprouse wrote.

Here's a PG version of the pic:
