The images quickly spread, prompting Sprouse to issue quite possibly the most chill response ever to a dick pic scandal:
Whoops, guess I'm not 14 and fat anymore— Dylan Sprouse (@dylansprouse) December 16, 2013
I messed up... but I'd be a fool not to own up to it. Got to move past it I suppose— Dylan Sprouse (@dylansprouse) December 16, 2013
At least you can't see my third testicle— Dylan Sprouse (@dylansprouse) December 16, 2013
[T]he 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.
