Teen Mom’s Mackenzie McKee Makes Embarrassing Blunder While Posting Sponsored Content
Whoopsies! Mackenzie McKee may not be on the current cast of Teen Mom OG or Teen Mom 2, but she’s still super easy to keep up with thanks to her continual posting on social media platforms like Instagram, Snapchat, Twitter and more. She also had a guest spot on a few episodes of last season’s OG. She’s turned her social media posts into a business like so many other influencers have — getting cash for promoting merch to her 850K followers.
Unfortunately, she had a bit of a gaffe this afternoon while posting sponsored content for Reindeer In Here kids’ Christmas shop. Instead of posting a personal message about how the brand has connected with her (as is the norm for #sponcon), she seemed to have copied and pasted the email from the store. “You can post on your page and say the kids are excited to start a new Christmas tradition with our new Christmas friend @reindeerinhere,” it said. “We challenge our followers to do the #reindeerrock challenge!” In the accompanying post, Mackenzie could be seen dancing with her three kids Gannon, Jaxie, and Broncs and wearing matching pajamas. Each of them were holding reindeer stuffed animals probably gifted from the company that asked for the post.
Thankfully, it didn’t take long for Mack to notice her error and changed the caption to; “these kids are so excited to start a new Christmas tradition with our new Christmas friend @reindeerinhere . We challenge our followers to do the #reindeerrock challenge!” She basically just erased “You can post on your page and say,” while adding a “-se” to the first “the,” which doesn’t necessarily add to the authority of the post, but most of her followers probably didn’t even see the original caption since it was up for just under a half-hour. Luckily, a Reddit user caught the blunder.
Honestly, this is just a great lesson for our kids (and, fine — us, too!) to always double-check our work! Also, to look closely before we post anything!
