The Bachelorette’s Elly Miles is called out for an embarrassing influencer fail as she ‘pretends to sip a pre-mix alcoholic drink’ in a sponsored post


Former Bachelorette Elly Miles has been accused of a social media gaffe after she advertised an alcoholic drink with her 200,000 Instagram followers.

The 26-year-old recently shared a sponsored post for Captain Morgan rum but was accused of only pretending to sip from the pre-mix can.

Elly’s video was reposted by snark account Celeb Spellcheck, alongside the caption: ‘Fake sip and I’ll advertise it here @captainmorgan you’re welcome.’

‘I genuinely don’t understand. Probably got paid more than my monthly salary to sip a drink and couldn’t even do it,’ one fan commented

Another wrote: ‘Surely she could’ve tried harder than that.’

‘Why fake drink? This makes no sense. If someone is giving me free drinks I’m downing them,’ a third added.

One of Celeb Spellcheck’s followers asked: ‘If it’s so bad, wouldn’t you replace it with water, so it actually looks legit?’

‘Honestly, influencers should be fined for fake advertising. Companies do, so influencers shouldn’t be let off so easy,’ another wrote.

‘Somebody call Home and Away – there’s a new actor in town!’ one said.

Daily Mail Australia has contacted Elly Miles for comment.

Hmm! In the video, Elly held the can towards the camera and said: 'It's that time of day... beverage o'clock.' She then appeared to take a sip from the can before giggling, but it seems she was just sucking air rather than consuming the drink
