If questionable photos of you circulated online -- and they were real -- what would you do?
The question crossed my mind after I found this article, which analyzes public figures' reactions to recent photo scandals.
The moral? Denial is not the best option.
Of course, that lesson is easy to embrace when you're not directly involved in the situation. But I understand how a first instinct approach would embrace denial.
Deny, deny, deny...and hope it all goes away. Too bad that rarely happens.
But at the same time, it's not like an immediate confession makes everything better, either.
You probably won't get a round of applause for standing up at a photo scandal's onset and saying, "Yeah, that's totally me."
What would you do?
