SCOTTSDALE, Ariz., Jan. 13, 2014 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- On January 4, after the Indianapolis Colt's triumphant comeback from 28 points behind the Kansas City Chiefs in the first half to win 45-44, punter Pat McAfee tweeted a picture from inside the Colt's locker room. While the photo prominently featured Adam Vinatieri giving an interview to a reporter covered completely by a towel, star quarterback, Andrew Luck, can be seen in the background completely naked with a towel barely covering his nether region. The caption on the photo read, "Naked Andrew Luck with the photobomb of the week." A short time later, McAfee removed the photo and tweeted,
"I feel awful for that Luck photobomb..Really thankful all his parts were covered.. An now I'm hoping the future HOFer forgives the mistake," @PatMcAfeeShow
McAfee was fined an undisclosed amount for posting the picture, and made it clear that he would never post anything of that nature ever again.
JW Maxx Solutions shares that this is a perfect example of how what goes on the Internet, stays on the Internet. Even though McAfee removed the picture from his Twitter account, it had already been favorited and retweeted numerous times – screenshots had been taken and the picture solidified its place on the Internet.
When it comes to posting images or messages on the Internet, the online reputation management experts at JW Maxx Solutions note that it is extremely important for users to be wary of what they say and post. Even if the Tweet or status is removed almost instantly, there is still the chance that the post will resurface from someone that has recorded it in one way or another.
Over the past year, JW Maxx Solutions has seen celebrities make the same mistakes again and again. When it comes to social media and online reputation management, JW Maxx Solutions recommends thinking twice and even three times about what users are about to send, how it could affect other people, and what they would do if it were to become viral. Asking these questions should give a good indication of the consequences that could arise from posting certain comments and pictures.
