What’s worse than taking a nude picture and texting it to the wrong contact? Actress Alison Pill can tell you it’s taking a nude picture and then tweeting it by accident to the whole Twitterverse. The “Newsroom” actress was understandably horrified and sorrowful when she realized that a nude photo, perhaps intended for her fiance actor Jay Baruchel, had been tweeted to all of her followers and anyone who wanted to take a peek.
Although Pill quickly deleted the photo now obtained by Gawker, for a few minutes it went out to her 13,597 followers, and as she came to discover once a nude photo is out there, it’s out there. If there’s anything harmful about the Internet it’s that it never forgets. Pill, who’s famous for her roles in Milk, and Scott Pilgrim vs The World, later tweeted and apologized for the unintentional show, tweeting to her followers:
“Yep. That picture happened. Ugh. My tech issues have now reached new heights, apparently. How a deletion turned into a tweet… Apologies.”
Yikes. It looks like there’s still a learning curve when it comes to mobile tweeting. Let’s hope Alison Pill has learned her lesson so she can spare herself further embarrassment.
