Out Gay Australian Athlete Simon Dunn Comments On Leaked Nude Photos
That said, the former Olympic bobsledder was, unfortunately, the latest celebrity to fall victim to an internet leak of his private photos.
He tells GuysLikeU:
“Although I'm not ashamed of the pictures, it is a little embarrassing. Mostly I’d like to apologize to my mum and family and supporters who might be upset by this. I’ve endeavored to make you proud and be your role model and right now I’m not living up to that goal.
“I’m only human and like most men I guess in this instance I wasn’t thinking with my brain… but something else! I hope I can put this all behind me, learn from my mistakes and continue my work promoting LGBT athletes and causes.
“I guess the silver lining is I can just link people to Tumblr next time they ask for such pictures. And remember boys no matter how hot he is don’t send nudes….
“On a serious note, as this is an invasion of my privacy and someone has clearly breached my trust, should you see these pictures please ask the corresponding page to take them down.”
