During a concert in Sweden, Lenny Kravitz’s pants split open on stage causing for an accidental flash of his penis to a screaming crowd. The 51-year-old rock star was performing at the Gronda Lund in Stockholm when he squatted down on the stage for a guitar riff and his black leather pants split down the middle causing the public exposure. Luckily, he had his electric guitar to cover up, but that didn’t stop the flow of meme’s on social media that were started by the singer himself branding the incident “penisgate.”


Kravitz branded the event “penisgate,” and he even shared a text message on Twitter from Aerosmith‘s Steven Tyler, who complained that he was never exposed to that much of Kravitz.

Kravitz, who wasn’t wearing any underwear under those tight leather pants, continued rocking out on his guitar after the incident, but later during the concert he disappeared for a quick wardrobe change. “The producer stepped up and said that they had ‘some problems on stage,’ a concert-goer told Expressen.  A bit later Kravitz came out wearing other trousers. He said, ‘Sorry, I ripped my trousers.'” Kravitz’s public exposure caused celebrities to tease him about the concert on social media. Andy RichterBryan GreenbergJoshua Malina and even PETA, offered to send Kravtiz a pair of vegan leather pants because they’re “extra sturdy.”

But the best #penisgate reactions on Twitter have to be from the fans, who created hilarious memes about the Kravitz’s public exposure. Check out the #penisgate meme’s below:
