Scott Disick Blasted After Major Instagram Sponsor Fail

Danielle McGaw

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.

For many of Scott Disick's 6 million-plus Instagram followers, this was the first time they realized that some of his posts are actually paid for by brands and they are not impressed.

CBC tells readers how Scott Disick fixed his Instagram mess, saying, "The caption was later edited to remove the sponsor instructions and to add the hashtag #ad."

Even though he took down the original post and reposted a picture for the sponsor, the damage was done. The new picture has comments like, "It must be good to get paid by posting these crap!" and "This brand lost credibility @booteauk y'all stupid. At least send out a personal trainer to train him and have him take your supplements for it to prove it actually works. Or get someone that can at least read an email right and know how to copy and paste." Some of the other comments are not so polite.
