ScoMo Goes Viral On TikTok For Following A Sexy Account On Instagram

A TikTok user has gone viral after he discovered that Prime Minister Scott Morrison has been following an Instagram account dedicated to Turkish models.

Cam Wilson, a reporter for Crikey, took to TikTok when he realised Scott Morrison was following an Instagram called – baddiesstartr.

The account was filled with photos of Turkish models, often in bikinis, modelling. Not exactly the kind of account you expect the Prime Minister to be following. At least not on his public account!

Since Wilson’s TikTok went viral with over 30,000 thousand views, Morrison’s Instagram account has stopped following baddiesstartr, and the Turkish model account temporarily disappeared altogether.

However, it has since reemerged.

Assumedly, Morrison’s PR team had a very busy morning.

Considering in times of crisis Morrison likes to turn to his wife Jenny, perhaps she had to remind the PM that it wasn’t professional to follow thirst trap accounts on Instagram.

However, the more likely scenario seems to be that the account may have originally been a professional and relevant Instagram account, for the Prime Minister to follow.

Then the Instagram page was bought and the content and name was changed, and Morrison’s team failed to flag the update.

Pedestrian, reported the account used to be a tourism page for Queensland. The publication came to this conclusion because of the tagged photos for baddiesstartr were all tagged to tourism in Queensland.

However, baddiesstart has now deleted all its tag photos, which makes it harder to prove the account was a different account originally.

Buying an Instagram account has become a popular trend. Businesses or sometimes just ordinary people will buy an account for its alleged reach and following.

Technically buying an account is against Instagram’s guidelines but it is a hard policy for the app to police.

Accounts can sell for thousands of dollars.

Still, the truth is unlikely to save the Prime Minister from having to dodge a few questions about his Instagram activity.

However, perhaps he will see it as a welcome distraction from questions about the COVID-19 vaccine rollout.
