A little more than a year ago, no-longer-teen heartthrob Cole Sprouse, who starred on Disney Channel’s The Suite Life of Zack & Cody alongside his twin brother Dylan, caused an uproar by pulling the plug on his Tumblr and announcing it had been some ill-conceived, data-mining, sociological experiment (or head game) all along.

Now it’s Dylan who finds himself on the wrong side of the social media platform, for a different reason: A young lady posted his nude selfies on her blog. (NSFW, clearly.)

Despite the amateurish photos—sexts really ought to feature a setting other than “depressing NYU dorm bathroom,” and a visible erection might be preferable to clutching your genitals like you’re defending a free kick in soccer—Sprouse took the doxing with good cheer, both on Twitter and his own Tumblr account. He even reblogged a popular list of the best social media reactions thus far.

Whoops, guess I’m not 14 and fat anymore

Sprouse’s diehard followers found a lot to love in his self-deprecation but weren’t quick to forgive the girl who had betrayed his trust. Fan site Sprouseable posted a photoset of the supposed culprit with the caption “I believe this is the girl that leaked Dylan’s nudes. Her tumblr is distinctpromises.tumblr.com. I’m normally very respectful of people’s privacy but I think she already crossed that line.”

The URL, of course, led to a deleted blog, though as the Sprouses have both discovered, rejecting fame doesn’t mean that fame is done with you.
