Olympic swimmer Tom Daley was already distraught that naked photographs of him had recently leaked. Well, we’re sure he’s not going to be any less upset once he finds out that popular gay underwear brand Andrew Christian sent out those Tom Daley nudes in an email blast to their customer database.
The subject line read: “TOM DALEY LEAKED NUDES !!” In the email that was shared on Twitter, the company invited people to click through to their company website where they can see Tom Daley “like you’ve never seen him before.”
The email links to an article on their site that features the pics as well. One photo features him in bed with his butt in the air and another depicts him lying in bed with his Olympic ring visible on his finger. The emails also reads: “Some of Tom’s personal pics have hit the web and now we know how he likes it!”
Going even further, Andrew Christian adds: “He’s just inviting us to dive right in.”
@2000Topics shared the email on Twitter with the caption: “I’ll probably get slandered, but Andrew Christian emailing their entire database with Tom Daley’s nudes has got the be the lowest point of 2018 so far. #boycott #tomdaley”
The private photos of Daley were leaked last week. The photos were taken back in 2016 when Daley and his current husband, Dustin Lance Black were on a seven-month break.
This news comes only one year after an intimate video of Daley was released, forcing the swimmer to confess to Black about his online sex session. This video was also taken during the couple’s break, which was kept private from the media. Daley has explained that the various demands of a long-distance relationship led to the short-term split.
Regarding the photos that have recently resurfaced, a close friend of Daley told The Sun Online, “The pictures are old. From 2016, way before Tom and Lance were married. They are from a time where they split for a few months, which they have both talked about previously, but they reunited.” Daley also stated at the time of the video release, “It was the distance. It’s not like I actually met up with anyone. I’m 22 years old, and if you talk to someone through social media it is what it is. It was nothing more than that. We never physically met.”
When Daley spoke of his online escapades, he made it very clear that it is all in the past now. “This will absolutely never happen again … Lance and I had time apart then came back together, realizing we’re meant for each other. We’re soulmates.” Daley’s lawyers have issued a notice to website demanding the photographs be taken down.
Daley’s lawyers had already contacted the website that published the Tom Daley nudes, asking them to take them down as soon as possible. We have reached out to owner Andrew Christian for comment and will update this post when he gets back to us.
