Naomi Campbell's Instagram Fail as Supermodel Mangles Sponsored Adidas Post


The supermodel found herself falling victim to a copy and paste nightmare only celebs can experience

Naomi Campbell hasn't historically had the best of time with phones but this might be a screen-breaker if ever we saw one.

The supermodel has fallen into the dreaded copy and paste trap that so many stars risk when they make a sponsored post to their social media accounts and it's a howler.

"Naomi, so nice to see you in good spirits," the post originally said, adding: "Could you put something like: Thanks to my friend @gary.aspden and all at adidas - loving these adidas 350 SPZL from adidas Spezial range. @adidasoriginals."

Helpfully, she wrote exactly that, along with the request which made it all a little bit awkward.

Fortunately for the statuesque clothes horse, someone on her team spotted the clanger and quickly changed it, but not before someone else could get a screenshot of the original post.

Sponsored posts are sneaky things, though they’re meant to be identifiable by their #spon hash tag, they’re still easy to get sucked into, and that’s the whole point.

Celebs encouraging you to buy something that they do (or possibly don’t) use.

From teeth whitening kits to weight loss tea, you’ll notice that loads of celebs, from the Kardashians to the Geordie Shore crew , bump up their pay cheques with these posts.

It comes after Keeping Up With the Kardashians highlight Scott Disick made the same mistake with one of his sponsored posts.

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.

This meant that the caption to the photo read: “Here you go, at 4pm est, write the below.

“Caption: Keeping up the summer workout routine with my @booteauk protein shake!”

One user wrote: “Bless you Scott, not paid to think just paid to promote”.

Another said: “You had one job scott”.

Scott’s now corrected the post and deleted the instructions - which you can see above.

With Jezebel reporting that Scott makes between £10,000 and £13,000 per sponsored post, it’s likely that he’s been doing some serious backpeddling to Bootea.
