'Riverdale' Star Cole Sprouse Gets NSFW With Bare Butt Photo

Cole Sprouse was caught with his pants down on Instagram on Tuesday. The 29-year-old actor posted a nude selfie with his back to the mirror, showing his bare butt for all the world to see. The photo appears to have been edited to make his rear end larger.

“Good morning to my publicity team,” Sprouse captioned the photo sardonically. It has racked up nearly 5 million likes at the time of this writing, and counting. Apparently, the picture does not violate any of Instagram’s standards since it has not been taken down yet. It also received some comments from the verified accounts of streaming services and TV outlets, indicating to some fans that this stunt was permissible for Sprouse’s career.

“Mooningshot,” wrote the official HBO Max account in a reference to Sprouse’s 2022 rom-com Moonshot. The official MTV account added: “Forgot to switch to my personal to like this,” while the verified accounts of other stars left stunned comments. Zelda Williams wrote: “Annnnnd just as it left my consciousness, it’s back again” with a crying-laughing emoji, and Mark Indelicato added: “This photo has been in my favorites for a very long time so I’m glad you posted before I did.”

Perhaps some of the strangest responses to this photo came on Twitter, where users tried to photoshop it back to its original form. Many praised Sprouse for bringing a “chaotic” twist to celebrity online culture, while others were mortified on his behalf. For long-time followers, this is not a huge surprise from Sprouse.
