Lee followed the post on Instagram and Facebook with a meme of an elephant, perhaps a quippy nod to the earlier pic’s removal. See that below, as well.
The drummer’s penis has been displayed publicly before, such as in the sex tape that served as the basis for this year’s Hulu miniseries Pam & Tommy.
Thursday’s nude photo brought up an interesting point in Cosmopolitan. The mag opined of a possible double standard when it asked why Lee got a “free pass” for posting it due to the time it took to come down from Facebook and Instagram. Meanwhile, “for the past few years, there’s been a steady stream of anecdotes shared by women, especially those who are plus-size or not white, of having their nude images rapidly removed,” Cosmo’s Jennifer Savin wrote.
Motley Crue are now touring the U.S. on their summer “Stadium Tour” with Def Leppard, Poison and Joan Jett. Get tickets here. Lee revealed at the first gig in June that he’d broken his ribs and would perform as much as he could, with a fill-in subbing in for him. However, he played his first full set later that month.
