In 2016, the battle for privacy is always ongoing. And this time, Troye Sivan has been the latest victim thanks to someone leaking some rather private nude photos of the star. However, Troye took control and broke the news to the world that nudes of him had leaked- and it’s safe to say his response was absolutely priceless.
For most people, having your intimate photographs shared with the world is a scary and embarrassing situation but Troye seems to be handling it rather well. In a text conversation with his manager which was later shared on Twitter, Troye can be seen joking around that he looked “good” in the nudes and that he should “b proud”. Whilst we won’t share the picture ourselves, the leak appeared on our Twitter feeds last night and we can confirm that his “almost nudes” do in fact, “look good”.
And here’s how Troye handled the situation…
But not long after Troye made his nudes known to the world, he warned his young fans about sharing personal pictures that people may not want to be spread.
In response to Troye asking fans not to share his nudes, a majority of supportive fans used Twitter not to promote negativity – but instead to begin the trend #RespectTroye. Amongst all the people asking what was happening and trying to keep up with the scandal, important messages about Troye’s wellbeing and privacy were made; “If you truly love Troye and you want him to trust us and be happy, please #RespectTroye and don’t do anything he won’t approve of”. This is kind of amazing fandom anyone could be proud of.
