Kim Kardashian Lashes Out At Instagram, Threatens To Leave. Can Instagram Survive The Backlash AND Become Profitable?

Kim Kardashian is the most followed instagram user, frequently posting photos of herself on the popular photo sharing App. But since the new privacy guidelines (which have already been adjusted by Instagram after user backlash) she is considering quitting entirely.

When Instagram announced new terms of service this week, many interpreted it to mean that the company can sell private photos or use them in advertising without compensating them or asking for permission. (Instagram insists that users misinterpreted the new policy, saying that they would never do so without permission or compensating the user, and then went so far as to back off their new policy and reinstate their old one.)

Kardashian, who certainly knows a thing or two about selling images of herself, was none too pleased about the new rules, although its unclear whether she knows of the post-backlash revision. She tweeted: “I really loved Instagram 🙁 I need to review this new policy. I don’t think it’s fair.”  TMZ reports that she may actually stop using it altogether.

It’s unknown how many users dropped Instagram when the new policy was released, but the company, which was recently purchased by Facebook for 1 BILLION DOLLARS, (!) quickly launched into damage control mode after the fury went viral. They issued a new statement vowing not to sell users’ photos and apologizing for the “confusing” language of the announcement.

Here’s the problem: Instagram is currently a Free APP without advertising! So essentially, millions of people enjoy their program, which requires the company to store all those photos – all that data – on some enormous hard drive somewhere… for free? Something’s gotta give. Trouble is – people have gotten might comfortable with this ‘store my photos for nothing’ situation Instagram set up, and now, if they end up getting charged, they may go somewhere else.  Stay tuned – this could get very interesting.

Kelly Ripa Shared A Sexy Picture Of Marc Consuelos And Warns More Male Nudity To Come!

Published

July’s heat ain’t got nothing on Mr. Consuelos.

Ok let’s be honest when someone shares a thirsty photo of their new man on social media it’s cause for an immediate eye roll…unless of course you’re Kelly Ripa showing off your hunky husband of over twenty years in which case that eye roll turns into tongue wag.

On Wednesday, the Emmy award winning talk show host took to Instagram to show off a photo of her incredibly buff husband Marc Consuelos. The 49-year old actor has bulked up for a two reasons; 1. He plays an ex-fighter on Kingdom which is now available for streaming on Netflix and 2. I needed a new wallpaper on my phone. In any event, the impeccable physique is obviously stunning as is the affection this couple shares after their nearly 25 years of marriage. In her caption Ripa wrote:

“KINGDOM is out on @netflix today! Warning: this show is brilliantly written, beautifully acted and jam packed with male nudity 🔥🔥🔥 you’ve been warned.”

Now that’s a heat advisory I can get behind. Check out the hunky photo below and tune into Kingdom on Netflix!

Celebrate The Last Day Of Pride Month With Megan Hilty’s Beautiful Rendition Of ‘The Rainbow Connection’

Published

on

🎶For all the lovers, the dreamers and LBGT.🎶

With only a few hours left to celebrate the magic of Pride month, the LBGTQ+ heavens opened up and sent down one more gift. Megan Hilty.

The Smash star gave a special Pride performance of the appropriately-themed classic “The Rainbow Connection” for ABC’s LA! Pride and of course she crushed it. The song was first sung by Kermit the Frog in the 1979 film The Muppet Movie and shares a message of hope and inspiration which obviously resonates strongly with the LBGTQ+ community. The only way Hilty’s rendition would be better is if she was covered in Muppet fur honestly.

The Broadway belter captioned the post with a sweet sentiment which read “Happy #pride🌈 kids! It doesn’t end today. Be proud of who you are every day of the year, and find your rainbow connection. 💕✨” And she’s right, every day should be filled with Pride!

Check out the moving performance below and Happy Pride y’all!

Here Are Some Of The Funniest Reactions To Kim Kardashian’s New Horse

Published

on

She ain’t no pedestrian equestrian.

Kim Kardashian West is so rich. How rich is she? Kim Kardashian West is so rich that even her horse has a perfectly laid hair do.

On Monday night, Kim shared a series of photos from North’s 7th birthday party which was celebrated “Wyoming style.” The cowboy themed party included such extravagances as a cowboy hat shaped cake, customized ATV’s and a race around the family’s go-kart track because of course they have a go-kart track on their ranch. None of those things received nearly as much attention as Kim’s tweet about North’s brand new “Freesian” horse however, and let’s just say the internet never disappoints.

The Tweet:

The spellcheck.

The probable.

The ingenuity.

The observant.

The relatable.

The sad truth.

The reason I love the internet.
