Celeb Social Media Porn Flubs: Was This One No Mistake?

When I say intentional social media porn-displaying incidents, I’m talking about “flubs” in which the celebrity in question does something like, say, share a picture of a Christmas tree right next to a large screen television on which a porn video is clearly playing.

You don’t need me to tell you how common celebrity social media porn-flubs have become in recent years, because there’s a new one in the headlines just about every week.

As new flubs occur, however, we entertainment-seeking internet surfers need to be vigilant and to keep our eyes open for fakes, set-ups and intentional stunts designed to create controversy – and, more importantly, the publicity which comes along with such social media-driven controversies.

To be clear, I’m not suggesting a guy like Anthony Weiner has been repeatedly and publicly humiliating himself on purpose; he seems to be legitimately clueless and careless (not to mention deeply ethically-challenged).

Ho, Ho, Ho!

When I say intentional social media porn-displaying incidents, I’m talking about “flubs” in which the celebrity in question does something like, say, share a picture of a Christmas tree right next to a large screen television on which a porn video is clearly playing.

But First, A Word About Mistaken Identity

Before plumbing further into the latest tale of celebrity oversharing, I must admit I was a bit relieved as I read through the article about “WWE legend” Scott Hall – because for a second there, I thought he was someone I knew.

Granted, I was instantly skeptical that a rather short, quite chubby programmer with whom I worked back in the mid-90s had gone on to become a professional wrestler, but it was still good to visually confirm the man who used to be known as “Razor Ramon” is not the same Scott Hall with whom I once shared a cubicle.

Among other things, I like to think the Scott Hall I worked with has more dignity than to share images of his Christmas tree on Instagram, let alone pictures of a large screen TV festooned with porn. Plus, now that I’m doing it, I’m not at all happy to be thinking about that Scott Hall and porn in the same mental space.

I’m not happy about it because for some reason, I’m now picturing my old coworker Scott in a red Speedo, sporting an enormous erection while reading a Dilbert cartoon. Obviously, this isn’t what I need right now when trying to write this post, so let’s just quickly move on again before I end up describe this image in even more detail and thereby risk it infecting your thoughts as well, shall we?

Consider the Visual Evidence

As to why I’m skeptical that this incident represents a legitimate social media porn-flub, the biggest (literally and figuratively) reason is the portion of the image occupied by porn. The screen on which we see an unidentified blonde woman being penetrated doggie-style takes up roughly a third of the photo; is it plausible Hall didn’t notice this?

Then again, as a professional wrestler, presumably Hall has been struck in the head by a great number of folding chairs, clipboards, clenched fists and possibly Donald Trump’s hair, so it’s conceivable he’s lost a step or two along the way.

Still, even a mentally-damaged wrestler should understand how to frame an image to emphasize the subject of the photo, which in this case is (ostensibly) supposed to be Hall’s Christmas tree. If you look at the image, however, the center point of the shot is almost next to the tree, basically inviting the viewer’s eye to wander, inevitably, to the TV screen.

As an ex-professional wrestler, my hunch is Hall might be feeling a little irrelevant and somewhat ignored, so maybe he wanted to get people talking about him again. Granted, having them mock you for accidentally sharing porn on Instagram might not be the ideal sort of talk for an attention-starved former wrestler, but I guess maybe it beats winding up on Gawker fucking your friend’s wife on camera – except that ex-wrestler wound up $31 million richer in the bargain, so maybe the sex tape lawsuit route would have been a better approach, after all.

But Wait – What To Make Of The Deleted Post?

Hall reportedly deleted the post after it got attention, fueling the dueling notions it was either an accident after all, or perhaps a joke gone awry, an attempt to get in on the fun with memes like the old pine tree picket shot.

I’m inclined to believe the latter, except if this was a joke, why delete the post? Sure, Hall quickly found himself in the headlines of every British tabloid out there, but if he intended this shot to be meme-like, wouldn’t at least half the fun come in watching the media not get it?

Whatever this incident is, it’s certainly not on the same level as “politician accidentally shares his porn-surfing habits,” or even “athlete accidentally shares penis pic with the web.”

Accordingly, on Calico’s five-star celebrity social media porn-flub scale, I’m giving Scott Hall’s post only 2.5 stars. Scott, next time try getting naked, hitting the tree with a folding chair and turning the whole thing into an animated gif; that sort of effort will earn you at least one more star.
