Dustin Lance Black Photos scandal

Dustin Lance Black has confirmed that the photographs doing the rounds of the cyber world are of him. The video was supposedly recorded way back in 2006 and it depicts Black with another man.

Dustin Lance Black has however expressed his disappointment over the whole matter getting blown out of proportion. Black said,” It is unfortunate that individuals and other outsider parties are trying to profit from material which is clearly private.” The photos were sold to the photo agency ‘Starzlife’. The pictures finally landed on the Perez Hilton website. Details about the seller and the prices of these personal pictures and videos has not come into light yet.

The screenplay writer of this years Academy Award winning movie “Milk” has apologized to people for his irresponsible actions. Black said,”I have had the privilege to speak to people across the country, both gay and straight, on a number of critical issues including safe sex. More important than the embarrassment of this incident is the misleading message these images send. I apologize and cannot emphasize enough the importance of responsible sexual practices.”

Another question haunting everyone about the whole murky affair is that, was it ethical enough for Perez Hilton to publish those photos of Black on its site? Even children are known to be visiting the website. In that case it would be projecting a very impressionable idea to them.

Dustin Lance Black had won this year’s Oscar for the Best Original Screenplay for “Milk”. He is presently working with Jennifer Connelly and Liam Neeson on his upcoming project.The Oscar win this year has opened the door for Black to bigger projects with A- list actors.
