Swedish politician accidentally shows genitals in Instagram

STOCKHOLM, Sweden, July 24 (UPI) -- A Swedish politician said an Instagram photo depicting his bare private parts was only supposed to show his new tattoo.

Lars Ohly, 56, the former chairman of the Swedish Left Party, uploaded a photo to his Instagram account Wednesday to show off the calf tattoo he obtained to show his support for the Liverpool soccer club, but he quickly removed the picture when he was made aware that his bare genitals were visible in the shot, The Local.se reported Wednesday.

"Summer's wonderful. The willy picture is today's hot topic. Completely by accident, though. The future will see a more thorough uploading review process," Ohly posted to his Twitter account.

"Oh, how many new followers I've got on Instagram today [and how disappointed they're going to be]," he tweeted.

Ohly, whose photographic gaffe made headlines in Sweden, said the "best reaction" was a text message from former Social Democrat leader Hakan Juholt.

"I'd planned to grill sausages tonight but now it's going to be chicken," Juholt wrote.
