watch what happens live after jesse williams broke the internet

everyone went crazy over jesse williams pipe leakage yesterday.
people that didn’t even know him are in springtime heat.
according to his reaction to all the fanfare over his meat per cnn:

“It’s a body, once you see it, you realize it’s whatever, it’s a boy!” Jesse said on the “Watch What Happens Live After Show.” “I just have to make it not that big of a deal.”

yeah well…
when the body is packing a meat cannon like he is,
it’s pretty hard to ignore.

even though everyone is cheering on whoever leaked his foot-long,
 actor’s equity is blasting whoever snuck the camera in.
per deadline

“We condemn in the strongest possible terms the creation and distribution of photographs and videos of our members during a nude scene,” said Kate Shindle, president of Actors’ Equity Association. “As actors, we regularly agree to be vulnerable onstage in order to tell difficult and challenging stories. This does not mean that we agree to have those vulnerable moments widely shared by anyone who feels like sneaking a recording device into the theater. Whoever did this knew not only that they were filming actors without their consent, but also that they were explicitly violating the theater’s prohibition on recording and distribution.

“At every performance, there is a mutual understanding between the audience and the performers that we are sharing an experience limited to this time and place; that trust makes it possible for us to be exposed both emotionally and physically,” Shindle added. “Trampling on this agreement by capturing and distributing these photographs and videos is both sexual harassment and an appalling breach of consent. It is a violation that impedes our collective ability to tell stories with boldness and bravery.”

i see where they are coming from but look at the bright side.
since this leakage:

This play is the hottest ticket in town

controversy sells puts butts in seats.
this has legit revitalized jesse’s brand.
no one was really fuckin’ with him after he and his ex-wife’s drama.
all it took was for his big sausage to knock folk’s memories out.
as bad as it is,
it’s still a win for the production.
ya’ll won’t be recording another shot of jesse again tho.
per ( x the new york times ):

The nonprofit theater presenting a starry Broadway revival of “Take Me Out” installed a new infrared camera on Wednesday to help its security team spot surreptitious camera usage by audience members after a video of a nude scene featuring the actor Jesse Williams circulated online.

that little preview was enough to sell us to go.
i hear the play is really good too.
i’m sure ya’ll will let me know what your thoughts are when you see it.
do not get yourself arrested trying to record it tho.

  1. Sorry but the actor’s equity statement is full of shit and contradictions. If it’s really that big of a deal how about you stop having actors get butt naked for your play? Because they want their cake and to eat it too. If they were truly upset for the actor exposed they would start having them wear prosthetics. They’re coming off as pseudo-pimps on some OnlyFans shit. YOU GOTTA PAY TO SEE THESE DICKS!

    That shit don’t sit right with me

    1. boy stop it… do u even realize other plays have nude actors also. this one is about a baseball team and its mainly in their locker room that way their is nudity.

  2. Yawn yawn this is an social media world period ya really think mf won’t get over happy over a good looking man with pipe they paid for they ticket signed no contract # Jessie comes out on top his phone will ring repeatedly for the best gig bet Tyler perry got him ready for a show I’m sure

  3. Jesse is a beautiful man. He clearly felt comfortable enough take on the role and all the reviews I’ve seen suggest he’s doing a good job. I won’t go as far as to claim that someone involved with the play did this, but while I get their public denunciation, I agree with Jamari that the pipe leakage brouhaha will only boost ticket sales, especially by people who didn’t even know it existed and among those who want to see him nude. Anyways, I haven’t seen this version but I did see the Daniel Sunjata version on Broadway back in the day (think it was 2003?), and the play is worth watching too.

  4. The play is good but Daniel Sunjata is not packing what Jesse packing. That was meaty and it look semi. He had to think of something to get like that because he is a very talented and experienced actor. You definitely are not going to bare it all and be embarrassed. What I want to know is, how is the audition process for that role, do you have to audition everybody meat because… man! Jesse is definitely not shy to getting naked. He did it before Grey’s Anatomy, where he was a model but he didn’t show anything. He had a lot of shower scenes and you can tell their April Kepner saw it too. The look in her eyes gave it away. The fact he is smart, brilliant, and loves his community and not afraid to bare it all like that says a lot. Grab me like that and let me feel all that on my body, baby, he wouldn’t be the only one giving a show.
