An Irish blogger with over 100,000 followers is leaving social media after admitting to rigging an Instagram contest to give the prizes to her friends
An Irish blogger has confessed to rigging an Instagram contest so that her friends could win the prizes. She also announced that she will be leaving social media following the backlash.
Terrie McEvoy, who boasts an impressive following of over 116,000 people on Instagram, admitted to the allegations, which date back to 2015, and apologized on social media for it.
McEvoy ran two Instagram competitions in 2015 on behalf of a jewelry company, Tower Jewellers. She then hand-picked her best friend and her brother’s girlfriend as the two winners. This was discovered by an Instagram account which has since been deleted.
