Lenny Kravitz found himself in quite the embarrassing situation recently when, during a concert in Sweden, the rock star’s pants split and exposed his uncovered crotch for the whole world and some paparazzi cameras to see. Since then, photos of his genitals have nearly broken the internet. And while many stars would still be blushing in silence over the photos, videos and memes, Kravitz recently decided to give a lighthearted reaction to the controversy.

The incident happened when Kravitz was onstage at Gröna Lund as part of his Strut World Tour. When he crouched down swiftly during one of his songs, his leather pants split right at his crotch. Kravitz wasn’t wearing any underwear, so his penis was immediately exposed and it also appears that he was wearing what many assumed to be a cock ring.

After photos and video of what has been dubbed the “penisgate” incident surfaced, Kravitz remained silent while the rest of the world turned his public exposure into countless memes and gifs.

But last night, Kravitz finally decided to share his sweet and simple reaction with the world via his Instagram page.

Check out his response after the cut.
