Take Me Out is the story of star MLB player, Darren Lemming, who comes out as gay  — and how he navigates this as a queer person of color, as well as how his team reacts.

The images — which featured a completely nude, full-frontal Williams — spawned thousands and thousands of tweets:

Well, Jesse opened up about the nudity leak in an interview with the Associated Press Thursday. “I’m not down about it,” he said.

“Our job is to go out there every night — no matter what,” he continued.

“I’m not really worrying about it. I can’t sweat that. We do need to keep advocating for ourselves,” Jesse said, referring to the support he’s received from the production company and other performers.

“It’s wonderful to see a community push back and make clear what we do stand for, what we don’t,” Jesse said.

“Consent is important, I thought,” he concluded. “So, let’s keep that in mind universally.”
