Alison Pill Pulled A ‘The Newsroom‘ And Accidentally Tweeted A Topless Pic (NSFW)

Alison Pill accidentally tweeted topless photo twitpic The Newsroom female characters technologyOne of my major pet peeves with The Newsroom that had me stop watching — aside from no longer paying for HBO, of course — was that Aaron Sorkin writes his female characters to be such helpless idiots who don’t know a thing about technology. Let’s not forget that in only the second episode, Emily Mortimer‘s allegedly revered news producer manages to send a personal e-mail about cheating on Will to the entire company because she doesn’t know how autofill works. The plotline seemed utterly ludicrous and downright insulting, but we figured, at least it only took place in Sorkin’s head.

Well, now it sounds as if life imitates art, because The Newsroom‘s younger female star Alison Pill just had a major social media snafu. An hour or so ago, the actress accidentally tweeted a topless photo of herself with glasses. It was obviously meant to be personal, but instead it went out to her 14,000 followers before Alison caught her mistake and hastily deleted the photo.

And because we’re all awful people who are online 24/7, multiple sites downloaded the image before she got rid of it. If you want to see it, you can view it below, though be warned it’s tame but still technically NSFW

To her credit, she immediately followed it up with a self-deprecating tweet:

Yep. That picture happened. Ugh. My tech issues have now reached new heights, apparently. How a deletion turned into a tweet… Apologies.

Really, she handled this the best way possible! We’re really proud of her for being so forthright and easygoing about it. And! Her fiance Jay Baruchel, the intended recipient of the photo, also sent out some cute tweets:

My fiancee is an hilarious dork. #imustgladitdidnthappentomefirst

It’s decided: Alison Pill is so much cooler than Maggie Jordan.
