Swedish Politician Accidentally Instagrams Picture Of His Private Parts

A Swedish politician on Wednesday accidentally posted a photo of his private parts on Instagram in an image that was intended to show his new Liverpool football club tatoo, according to AFP.

Left Party leader Lars Ohly, 56, deleted the photo after some of followers said they could also see his penis.

“Ha, ha, I accidentally posted a picture on Instagram that showed more than intended. Now corrected,” Ohly tweeted.

After the picture went viral, some Swedish politicians didn’t let their rival down easy.

“Congratulations to you, after all these years, for getting this genuinely public breakthrough!” conservative Foreign Minister Carl Bildt, a political opponent, tweeted, according to the AFP.
