"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.
