Tommy Lee came back with another full-frontal nude photo post on Friday (August 12), this time circumventing Instagram rules by making the previously X-rated photo look like a painting.
That Motley Crue drummer broke the internet the day before an early morning overshare of a fully nude, penis-exposed photo which was posted on Twitter, Facebook and Instagram. The image was removed from Facebook and Instagram as it violates the platform’s restrictions on pornography. Twitter has no such restrictions.
Lee feigned a mistake by posting, and captioned the nude, “Oooopppsss.”
Now, a deliberate, reworked edit of the D-pic appeared on Lee’s Instagram late Thursday night. Someone appears to have run an art filter over Lee’s photo and randomized his necklace and tattoos and, yes, all body parts, into a brightly colored mosaic. And as of noon today (August 12), Instagram still allows it.
Some Tommy fans “allow” it too, while others seem to digitally roll their eyes.
On the pro side, the most popular fan comments are “The return of the king”, “Damn right Tommy”, “PURE ART” and “😂😂😂😂bro said I will find a way.”
Fans who look like they’ve had enough say “Tommy put the phone down”, “NURSE HE’S OFF HIS MEDS AGAIN”, “Not again Tommy” and “Come on bruh.” Even Tommy’s wife, Brittany Furlan, writes simply: “HELP.”
Crue fans weren’t the only ones who noticed the original nudity. CNN reports that it ignited an argument of “double standards” within social media. “‘So Tommy Lee can post a picture of his penis on @instagram that’s still up three hours later, but a picture of my curvy boot in a thong bikini gets taken down? Cool, cool,” journalist Lola Méndez tweeted. She compared to seeing Lee’s nude picture on social media to get an unsolicited picture of a penis. And one user wrote: ‘2022 and we will witness Tommy Lee being praised for posting frontal nudity while Britney Spears is constantly shamed for posting sexy pictures.’
Check out the transformation here, if you dare. It hasn’t been reshaped or anything, so parts are still going to look like parts.
While Lee advances his work in the visual medium, his biggest hustle continues with Motley Crue. The big summer Stadium Tour with Def Leppard, Married, Joan Jett and The Blackhearts and Classless law rolls into Pittsburgh tonight and then heads to the Upper Midwest. Get tickets here.
