It all started simply enough. Orlando Bloom went paddleboarding with girlfriend Katy Perry, and he didn’t wear a swimsuit. Maybe he forgot it? Maybe he didn’t like it? Maybe he was just like every body is a beach body and nobody is going to shame me into the tyranny of fabric? For whatever reason, he didn’t wear trunks, and the press snapped up photos like the prize that they were and posted censored versions of them online.
And so now we have this.
It doesn’t show much, but if you look closer, there is a very telling shadow.
And this “shadow” has taken on a life of its own on Twitter as fans react to it.
Once the shadow was detected, the wait for the uncensored pics began in earnest.
And finally, the uncensored — and NSFW — pics made their way onto Twitter, though we haven’t been able to confirm they are the real thing. It seems about right, though?
