Ex-LSU and current Cincinnati Bengals offensive lineman Andrew Whitworth isn't too happy his naked butt wound up on the NFL Network during a post-game locker room interview this past Sunday.

During an interview with Bengals defensive back Adam Jones, Whitworth was one of many players who could be seen naked in the background of the interview.

“This is my office space,” Whitworth said, according to the Cincinnati Enquirer. “I shouldn’t have to change in it and be in front of people I don’t know or really don’t have any purpose for being near me other than the fact they are interviewing other people. If I was a woman, this would be a completely different subject, and it would be a complete firestorm. We can’t always just serve women and everyone else. Men deserve a right, too. We have rights. We have privacy. We deserve all the things we want as well. As a man, I think it’s right the policy is changed.”

More from Whitworth: "For me personally and my wife, we’re fine, but I think of it as if my daughter, Sarah, (was) 16, and she had to go to high school and listen to all the crap that’s going on today in the media about me being naked on camera, whatever would happen to her to ridicule or mock her, that’s the way that I see it, and as a father and a man, it’s wrong."

Whitworth, a Pro Bowl player and second round pick of the Bengals in 2006, played four years at LSU and set a school record by playing in 52 games in his career.
