Dallas Cowboys tight end Martellus Bennett has been on top of the trends right now for his naked pictures spreading online. MediaTakeout.com reported that an old girlfriend of Bennett posted the photos as a revenge. The picture was taken in front of a bathroom mirror using an iPhone with an odd title of “OH MY!!!! NFL BALLER CHEATS ON HIS GF . . . SO SHE RELEASES NEKKID PICS OF HIM!!”. The offensive parts were covered with a comic book-style starburst.
A lot was wondering why Bennett was absent on the first few days of mini-camp. He admitted that he sprained his ankle doing “jump-ball” drills. After few days, his nude pictures came out and spreading like virus. The former second round pick answered the situation with a statement released through the team. The team has been addressing the case with Bennett internally and hope to resolve it as soon as possible.
“These pictures were taken four years ago and placed on the Internet recently without my knowledge or consent. I understand that they are totally inappropriate. And for that I am sorry. I regret the embarrassment that it has caused the organization.”
It is not the first time for an NFL player to be exposed in scandals like these. Take not that last January, naked pictures of Portland Trailblazers center Greg Oden appeared and an alleged penis picture from Tampa Bay Rays star Evan Longoria was posted last May.
These things are inevitable and if you don’t want to be involved with these kind of embarrassment, better not take photos that might harm your reputation in the future.
