Tim Tebow

Allegedly Asks for Twit Pic

to be Taken Down

5/20/2012 9:27 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Tim Tebow posed for a photo backstage with cast members of the Broadway music "Rock of Ages" ... and then asked for that photo to be taken off Twitter ... this according to one of the cast members. 

Neka Zang posted the pic (see above) on her Twitter account at some point last night -- and even posted a photo of the whole cast Tebowing.

But the photo with Tebow was gone a short time later ... which she explained by tweeting, "Well, Due to Tebow's "image" I was asked to remove the pic of him with us half dressed ladies. He does know we arn't real strippers right?"

She went on to say, "Tweeps. I'm not mad, or judging. Just letting u all know I took the pic down. Ok. Thanks."

Calls to Tebow's rep were not returned.

His plan backfired. He asks Neka (who has 565 followers) to remove the pic and it ends up being featured on TMZ for millions to see.

I thought Tebow's thing was that he was being true to himself as a faithful Christian instead of putting on the macho ball player act. Now it is clear that image is more important to him than substance too. The irony is that now VASTLY more people will see this image than if he had just let it be.

He's trying to be act like he's never jack off in his life before. You're a man, dude, and every man has needs. Don't try to deny it. We can all see you're happy standing right there and not just for posing a picture smile, but a happy, satisfied smile. After all, you may be a virgin, but there's other things you can do to a girl without using your d--k. Also, don't tell us no one ever gave you a bl-w j-b.

You know, it speaks volumes about how the stupid performer who is being the truly classless person here by whining and being judgmental about being asked to take the pic down (assuming that's even true) isn't receiving any criticism here, while Tebow is.

In case you people don't get it, Tim Tebow is one of the FEW celebrities who willingly takes pictures with literally anyone who asks. Why? Because he's a NICE, UNPRETENTIOUS GUY. People like these performers ask him to pose for pictures with them, not the other way around. That does not mean that they then have his implied permission to post that picture all over the internet.

This guy has more irrational haters with ugly, baseless motives than anyone I've ever seen. Heck yeah, his people (and they are the ones who would have requested that the pic be taken down and likely without even consulting Tim, because that is their JOB) wouldn't want it floating around. There are so many haters who would retweet that photo and "speculate" about who the women are and whether they are strippers or worse. How do I know this? Because you can type in "Tim Tebow Girlfriend" and come up with millions of hits on Google, all alleging that literally every female he's ever taken a photo with is or was his girlfriend. Including one of him at an awards ceremony in college WITH HIS SISTER Katie.

THAT'S how desperate and motivated people are to make false claims about this kid and his personal life that supposedly "expose" him.

Oh, and in response to those of you hating on him for agreeing to take the picture in the first place, if he had refused, you would be hating on him even more. As would the stupid woman whose silly complaining started this all. The guy can't please anybody no matter what he does.

I'll tell you one thing. As someone not looking to promote a show, sell tickets or find 15 minutes of fame through Tebow, if I ever met him and he took a picture with me, I'd never post it anywhere. I would appreciate it as a private memento of meeting a cool person, which should be the whole point.

some of these comments are unbelievable. It's like you people think you have the right to tell people who they have to be. Gay people don't want others telling them to be straight and Tebow doesn't want people telling him to be less conservative. Everyone has a right to be who they want to be. Everyone justifiably criticizes Rihanna for being a stupid skank crap role model, so you have Tebow who is completely opposite and you find a way to criticize him too. Most you people are narcissist hypocrites!

Wonder if Tim realizes Tammy Faye Bakker's ghost showed up to pose with him on his left arm?

"Tweeps. I'm not mad, or judging. Just letting u all know I took the pic down. Ok. Thanks."

Yeah, way to try and brush it all off after name-dropping. You aren't mad or judging, just trying to garner attention for yourself. GTFO Biotch!

Hey Tebow the total tool.. if you don't want pictures posted that might "tarnish your totally pushed on society image" don't take the pictures in the first place. I can't stand this guy... more hype than talent and we get it already... you like jesus and stuff. Who cares.

He can carry the religious crap a little far & it becomes silly. If he truly had "faith", he'd keep it to himself and not advertise it every chance he got (in front of a camera).

He needs to stop acting like a celebrity. That's his main problem now. While Peyton Manning is working-out 8 hours a day, Tebow is making public appearances.
