Gawker Sites Rail Against Publishing Nude Pics of Women, Then Post Photo of NFL Coach’s Penis

Ever since the famous nude photograph leak known as “The Fappening,” sites like Deadspin and the rest of the Gawker empire have come out very aggressively against anyone who would dare leak those photos online. There is just one problem with that: They don’t care if it is nudity involves a man.

On Sunday, Redskins assistant coach Ben Kotwica had a bit of a bathroom emergency. Most guys have been there before. You have to pee but there is no bathroom in sight so you find the next best thing; a cup. Well, Kotwica did find a cup, but the cup happened to be in a stadium full of tens of thousands of football fans.

One fan, a mother attending the game with her kids, took a photo of Kotwica that leaves nothing to the imagination. She decided to tweet it, which is her prerogative, and Deadspin decided to post that sucker right on their site (albeit below a NSFW warning).

Would Deadspin have been OK with this if it were a photo of a woman peeing? History says no, they would absolutely not.

In 2014, at the height of The Fappening, Jezebel , a site that belongs to the Gawker family, made it very clear where they stand on nude photographs being leaked to the internet. “Ugh, More Nudes of Female Celebrities Leaked,” the title read. The article condemned anyone who would put these poor women through that sort of public humiliation. “Let’s not get used to this,” the author wrote, “no person, no matter how famous should have to go through something like this.”

No person, no matter how famous. Except for all of the guys who’s penises the Gawker empire felt it was fair to show.

We have snowboarder Shaun White, who allegedly sent NSFW photos to a woman in private text messages, which Deadspin gladly shared back in August. We also have former WWE star Seth Rollins, who posted and deleted a photo of a nude female WWE model/wrestler. Deadspin could not wait to show off his skin flute to the masses. (To be fair, they did show the photo of the female here, but all that is visible is back and boobs, which social justice warriors typically argue are not sexual in nature, and therefore they can rationalize this one).

And then we are back here, in October of 2016 where a no-name NFL assistant coach is forced to deal with the fact that his package is all over the internet because he had to pee and decided to improvise. Don’t expect the Gawker empire to come rushing to his defense and or write articles about how publishing his photo is harassment and potentially criminal.

Gawker may go by a new name, and its media empire might be trying to change its horrible image, but they’re still the same old dicks.
