Scott Disick, the ex-boyfriend and baby daddy of Kourtney Kardashian's children, found out that the internet is not so forgiving, and even though you can delete things, once something is posted, it can be out there on the internet forever.
Disick has an Instagram following of over 16 million followers. This is significant and brands like to take advantage of people who have large followings like this by having them share images with their products in it. People who get sponsored Instagram ads can receive a substantianal amount of money by sharing sponsored posts. In Scott Disick's case, according to Jezebel, earnings for an Instagram post can be $15,000 to $20,000 per post. Yes, you read that right – per post!
So, needless to say, it is important that people like Scott Disick who do share sponsored posts make it seem natural and not like an advertisement.
Yesterday, Disick did anything but that.
He posted a picture of himself with a container of Boo Tea Shake in front of him. The problem? In the caption he forgot to remove the instructions from the advertiser.
The Mirror reported Scott Disick's Instagram faux pas.
"The reality star posed with a jar of Bootea protein shake – standard. But then he forgot to delete the instructions from the company about what to write for the photo's caption."
"Here you go, at 4pm est, write the below Caption: Keeping up with the summer workout routine with my morning @booteauk protein shake!"
Several people noticed the mistake right away and took a screen capture so it is now on the internet forever.
