Fashion designer Marc Jacobs shocked his Instagram followers Tuesday when he accidentally shared a nude photo of himself with all 200,000 of them!

The 52-year-old designer shared a side shot of his butt, which he captioned, "It's yours to try!" The problem? It also showed off a bit of his frontal action!

The designer deleted the sexy pic just moments later but not before some of his followers took screen grabs of it, which they shared online once the original vanished.

Don't expect Jacobs to be scandalized by the R-rated social media snafu, however. Not only has he copped up to it, he also says he won't be shamed.

"Yeah, I accidentally posted a pic of my bare ass and took it down," Jacobs wrote in a follow-up thread, according to Paper magazine.

"I was flirting with someone I met on Instagram. Meant to send it by DM. Oops, my mistake," he explained. "I apologize to anyone it offended. I'm a gay man. I flirt and chat with guys online sometimes. BIG DEAL!"

Jacobs has candidly discussed using Grindr in interviews, so his admission and lack-of-apology shouldn't be surprising. Plus, the mistake didn't exactly hurt the designer -- he's gained more than 18,000 new Instagram followers since this all went down!

Jacobs isn't the only celebrity who won't be shamed for sexy nude shots -- Kim Kardashian reveals plenty of flesh in her recent Selfie book, seen in the video below.
