Clay Aiken, the former American Idol runner-up now running for Congress in North Carolina, says celebrities victimized by the recent nude photo hacking scandal and “anybody who takes inappropriate pictures of themselves deserve exactly what they get.”
The 35-year-old single father made the comment to a Washington Post reporter yesterday in a move that will likely (not likely) please the progressive young Democrats he’s currently attempting to woo in his home state.
Like a true politician, Aiken also conveniently forgot to mention that he was the victim in a similar situation back in 2007, when he was publicly outed after a former butt buddy provided the press with some super sexxxy photos. “I’ve got a mirror if I want to check something out,” he said.
So as not to come off as totally heartless, he added that “of course whoever [stole and released the photos] should be hogtied,” and that “it’s unfortunate that we don’t have Internet security right now or the laws in place to protect people from pirating that stuff.”
Ok! Thanks, Clay!
