Allegedly Asks for Twit Pic

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.

If Tebow really did request this because he didn't want to be seen with these actresses he shouldn't have posed for the photo! And of course his request that it be removed from Twitter makes it much more popular than it would have been had he just left it alone. It's going to get a TON of TV coverage now, that's for sure.

I am SO SICK of Tebow!!! He is a total moron! He's not famous for being a football player, he's famous for being famous... like Kim Kardashian and Paris Hilton.

Then she gives it to TMZ for some $$$!! Who's not mad or judging?? Hey Tim, stop being such a fricken hypocrite. Next time, politely refuse to take pics until the cast is dressed. MORON!

Anybody in the public had better be aware of how they appear in pictures. Ive seen it come back to bite some people in the bite. Cops are a huge target to have their accounts accessed by the media. I don't blame him for wanting the pic removed.

I have to say, this makes me like him less. There's nothing wrong with what those performers are wearing. His "people" need to wise up.

The Broncos let tebow go after 1 year as a starter because he will never win championships Rex Good luck next year as an assistant coach somewhere other than NY.

Why doesn't Tblow just have himself turned into a eunuch? That way he won't be tempted by all of these big city hussies. What a phony. Did he have the girls pray with him, after the photo?

Well she said that she was asked to take it down. She didn't say Tebow himself asked her to. And like quite a few have mentioned, just by asking, this has gone from having the attention of a few hundred to having the attention of a couple millon.


Tebow is the type of celeb that most people either LOVE him or HATE him. And something this small isn't going to change their minds. So with this getting out, the HATERS get to rag on him for a while and his FANS defend him. BUT IT HAS THEM TALKING ABOUT HIM.


This sounds like a very sly move a publicist made to keep people talking about their love or dislike of Tebow. AND LOOK, IT WORKED. Tim probibly had nothing to do with it. Just his people doing their jobs.


Just a possibility I'm throwing out there.

Tebow honors Satan's goddess Nike. How do we know? He has been spotted wearing clothing honoring the PAGAN GODDESS NIKE... He even endorses it!
That is bigger news than this story!

did not say "Tebow asked me to remove . . ." It said, "I was asked to remove . ." DIDNOT say by whom! Only the article uses "Tebow allegedly asks . . . "
