If you are a Dancing with the Stars Fan you will recognize the guy above. He is William Levy a current contestant on the reality show. I bet you never thought you’d hear about DWTS on this blog. He is one of the most popular contestants and regularly gets much applause going well into the judges comments. However, there is a “scandal” with him, that he modeled X-rated pictures for N2N Bodywear. Please note the word scandal is in quotation marks. The pictures in question are not “x-rated” rather him modeling in mesh underwear. Yes there isn’t much to the imagination in the pics but they are not sexually explicit.
We have talked about the double standard in men’s underwear this year on the blog. I feel this is another example of how if this was a female contestant it would not be a big deal. I haven’t seen this on TV yet, but it has set the blogosphere on fire! Specifically entertainment and reality show blogs. I think this is pretty much a non issue. With that said it’s really amazing press for N2N, who couldn’t have timed it better since their new line is about to be released.
I would like to know if you feel this is a double standard? Please leave a comment, post on facebook, email us and/or answer the poll below. Show your support and on Monday vote for William!
