Was Jesse Williams full frontal broadway video for real?
A leaked nude video has changed the life of many, but is this the case for Jesse Williams? Jesse Williams is an American actor, activist, and occasional model best known for his role as Dr. Jackson Avery on the ABC Television series Grey’s Anatomy. Compromising pictures & videos of his nude scene in the Broadway play Take Me Out, have leaked, and the actor has pledged that he won’t dissuade from giving his all.
Williams has made appearances in famous films like The Cabin in the Woods (2012), Brooklyn’s Finest (2009) and independent films such as Night Catches Us (2010). The actor has also shown to be an active advocate for civil rights as well as other numerous social justice situations. For this reason, he has won several awards that include NAACP Image Award, a BET Humanitarian Award, and a GLAAD Media Award.
Aside from Grey’s Anatomy, Jesse Williams has an important performance career on Broadway, where he appeared in Take Me Out in 2019, George C. Wolfe’s drama revival. Please have in mind that Take Me Out, written by Richard Greenberg is a Tony Award-winning play. Williams has all the economic and humanitarian resources to front-face this video situation, but what is really happening?
Take Me Out leaked video
All kinds of non-consensual distribution of content are equally despicable, consent is everything in 2023. No matter if it’s a private video with a sexual partner or a Broadway play where filming is forbidden, leaking personal content is something that shouldn’t happen anymore. Cases like Williams are sad because there is a vulnerability coming from art & sensitivity that gets exposed without consent.
The Broadway play is set in the world of Major League Baseball and follows the story of Darren Lemming (Jesse Williams). Take Me Out’s narrative develops around the changes that happen when one of the teammates reveals themself to be openly gay. So overall, it’s an extremely important play in terms of representation, it’s sad that we get to talk about it thanks to the morbidity of a leaked video. Yet, all publicity is good publicity.
This 2022’s plays comeback opened at Second Stage’s Hayes Theater last month and will be running through June 11 so stay tuned. Take Me Out made Jesse Williams receive a Tony nomination on Monday which was the same day that the content got leaked. His leaked images and videos contained a full-frontal nude scene that automatically got viral online. But how is he feeling about all this?
Williams is hard to break down
Although he definitely doesn’t rank in the list of the wealthiest actors, Jesse Williams has shown to be a professional, critical and strong actor. Jesse Williams’s estimated net worth is $9 million, but his humanity is definitely indecipherable and his reaction to this situation is proof of that. “I’m not down about it,” that’s what Williams told the Associated Press in an interview.
From Williams’s point of view, an actor’s job is “to go out there every night, no matter what” followed by I’m not really worrying about it. I can’t sweat that.” In this interview, Jesse Williams wisely used the space to talk about the role of consent and also thanked the community that has defended him. It’s more than clear that the actor counts on the necessary strength to pass through this, yet, it doesn’t mean that’s ok.
Might these situations serve to point out how incorrect & violent it is to leak content, no matter how positive things turn after? A number of new followers or a name and a fortune, in the best of cases, like Kim Kardashian’s shouldn’t justify the unconsented distribution of content. Undoubtedly, the role of Jesse William in this role is more necessary than ever.
