It’s Summer, so that means plenty of influencers and just normal folk taking photos of their cool treats for Instagram. But one man has snapped.
This Los Angeles ice-cream-truck owner is so fed up with influencers asking for free ice cream cones that he’s decided to charge them double! WWE wrestler turned actor John Cena showed support by reposting the photo on his Instagram.
CVT Soft Serve owner Joe Nicci wrote in an Instagram post: “We’ve decided to make this thing official with signage. We truly don’t care if you’re an Influencer, or how many followers you have. We will never give you a free ice cream in exchange for a post on your social media page. It’s literally a $4 item...well now it’s $8 for you.”
He also added the hashtag #InfluencersAreGross for good measure.
Can you blame him? Some influencers just end up taking a photo with their Ice Cream and throw it in the trash afterwards.
ONTD, is this the beginning of the end for influencers?
