Last month, singer Jason Derulo shared an underwear snap to Instagram that had many of his followers flushed and hot-under-the-collar. The picture in question shows the 30-year-old star wearing nothing but a tight pair of shorts during a recent trip to Bali.
But Derulo's 5.1 million followers couldn't help but stare at Derulo's "anaconda", which many fans accused him of photoshopping to look bigger.Check out the bizarre trailer for the new 'Cats' movie starring Derulo:
In order to clear up any confusion around the image - which racked up an impressive 400,000+ likes - Derulo revealed that, despite the naysayers, the photo and its contents was all Jason. In an interview with TMZ, he explained:
"It was in Bali. I honestly [didn’t] feel like that was going to be my most liked picture when I woke up this morning. I posted the motherf*cker very early. It was [a photo] from months ago. It was not even something that I just did.
"Photoshop? Photoshop? Don’t make me [pull it out]. There are not enough women in this area. Just know that us Haitians, we look different."
However, it seems Instagram was not impressed with Jason's manhood, as they have since removed the image for violating their community guidelines on the grounds of "nudity or sexual activity".
Taking umbrage with the removal of his flattering photo, Derulo has since reposted the picture, along with a screenshot of the post violation. Addressing Instagram, he captioned the post: "F*k u mean? I have underwear on... I can’t help my size.."
And Jason wasn't the only person to take a shot at the social media giants, as comments flooded in supporting the singer.
One user typed: "My man cant help it if hes been blessed by god and is packing a massive python in his pants! I mean seriously @jasonderulo do you have to tape it down when your dancing? I'm asking for a friend [sic]".
Another simply typed: "DI**SCRIMINATION"[[imagecaption|| Credit: Instagram]] [[imagecaption|| Credit: Instagram]]
Derulo has always been very confident in the hard work he puts into maintaining his impressive physique. In a recent interview with Men’s Health, the Cats star revealed there’s a lot more to that picture than him just turning up in Bali and taking his shirt off. As he put it:
"For all of you who feel like you don't have the genetics on your side—you feel like you gotta work harder than everybody else; you gotta eat cleaner than everybody else—I'm the same way,' he said about keeping his clean physique for his tour and the movie.
"Just because your friend can eat pizza and still have abs, that don't mean that you gotta do the same thing. If you know that you gotta eat cleaner, that's what you gotta do. But just know that you're not alone. S**t, I want some pizza too."
You keep doing you, Jason.
