MTV's reboot of Teen Wolf, the 1985 film that featured Michael J. Fox as your everyday teenage werewolf, starts up this weekend. But in the days leading up to the premiere, MTV and legal representatives are working to stamp out one of the young star's previous work as a model for a gay youth publication called XY Magazine. The magazine's not around anymore, but a 2006 photo spread featuring Colton Haynes, a Teen Wolf co-star, kissing another boy, has surfaced online.
DoorQ.com reports being contacted by Bryan J. Freedman, an attorney for Haynes, requesting the removal of "private" photos of the actor. The gay, scifi-focused website reprinted the letter:
I am contacting you regarding [your] postings of multiple private, obscene, lewd, and pornographic photographs of my client, privately taken ... depicting my client ... partially or possibly completely nude, engaging in or simulating sexual conduct, in most instances with other individuals. ... Your public disclosure of these private photographs violate Haynes' right to privacy.
