Dynamo Moscow’s new signing Clinton N’Jie made a mortifying mistake.
Is it really that easy?
Cameroonian soccer player Clinton N’Jie learned the hard way why he shouldn’t drink and Snapchat.
N’Jie, who recently moved from French club Olympique de Marseille to Dynamo Moscow, somehow managed to leak his own sex tape last weekend. The footage of the striker in bed with a model was quickly deleted but remains disturbingly easy to find with a simple Twitter search.
In addition to deleting the video, N’Jie also issued an apology and an explanation for how he could have made such a grave error.
“I’m sorry, I had drunk too much,” N’Jie told Orange.fr. “I celebrated my new contract and wanted to read the news. I pressed the wrong button.”
The reason people say Snapchat is so hard to use is that the “read news” button is right next to the “post sex tape” button. It’s a common mistake.
N’Jie really must have had too much to drink because his explanation doesn’t make any sense. When Draymond Green inadvertantly broadcast a photo of his junk to the world, he said he was trying to send it privately but instead shared it publicly. That’s a perfectly reasonable explanation. N’Jie managed to invent a whole new genre of social media miscue. You have to hand it to him.
