It’s quite possible that I have found the greatest Instagram online, ever…
A bold statement you may say, but far from simply uploading pictures of what you had for breakfast and the odd selfie, tagthesponsors provides a unique insight into the underground world of “dis-honest” prostitutes who flaunt an extravagant lifestyle online, usually captioned with “deep” quotes like “work hard play hard” to their adoring followers.
The fans of these accounts are generally none the wiser to the real reason as to how these seemingly un-employed girls can afford the lifestyle they live, assuming they are coining in the cash from “a modelling campaign” or what is becoming more common, “Fit Tea” sales, but underneath the facade of a strong independent business women that they proclaim to be, tagthesponsors regularly receives submissions from wealthy hardcore fans of the page, showing that it simply boils down to prostitution…
I made the distinction before that it was really just the “dishonest” prostitutes that get exposed on the site, in-fact ironically – those who are open about having a sugar daddy or a “sponsor” are praised for their honesty and congratulated for accepting who they are and what they do.
Having looked into the earning potential of an Instagram user with a following of 50k+ , the chances of making anything over $100 for a sponsored post is very very slim and rare. In-fact recently, “The queen of Instagram” Essena O’Neill was reported to be sleeping on friends sofas as she was flat broke, despite proclaiming to the media during her time on the site that she could earn up to $20,000 a post.
Over the past year, Tagthesponsors have grown in size from a respectable 15k followers to an impressive 45,000+, the thirst for exposing these trollops is showing no signs of stopping as the followers grow every week, and within hours of the latest trollop being exposed, “The Tag Team” (as the followers of the account are called) start asking probing questions on the “victims” account, inevitably leading to the girl going private or issuing a statement as to how they were “hacked”. Occasionally, the girls are so upset that they have been exposed that they resort to sending legal threats via the website from fake law firms, or most recently, an “FBI agent” who strangely had terrible grammar and a gmail account.
The email threads are posted on the site, along with a caption about how they will be “wiping their ass” with anymore emails they send. It is shocking, but ultimately predictable that these girls will go to the lengths they do to make money, but as the offers of cash increase, the dignity of the girls decreases drastically to the point where one of the girls who was exposed recently is prepared to get pregnant and have an abortion after 4 months to fulfil the strange fetishes of one of the “bait” sponsors.
Most of the girls who contact the “bait” sponsor seem to be very well experienced in dealing with men who want to pay for sex, to the point where they are professionally negotiating the price and what they are prepared to do for it, and appear completely un-fazed when the sponsor offers to pay extra for the girl to insert a live salmon up his bum, it is actually very depressing but also strangely hilarious that girls have to stoop to such low levels to pay for their new red-bottom shoes, or that private jet trip to Vegas, but this is happening on a huge scale across Instagram and despite the notoriety of the page now, there is still a queue of women desperate for that all expenses week away in Dubai.
I spoke with the admin of the site who tells me;
“The concept came about one night I was out with friends in Miami and we saw these two Instagram models, both have over 300k followers. They were sitting at a table having dinner with some older gentlemen. My buddies and I decide to look up their profile and noticed they had uploaded a picture captioned “girls night” just showing two glasses of wine and tagging each other. A friend of mine in the fashion industry made the comment “she should’ve tagged the sponsor” (referring to whenever clothing lines send free stuff out to the IG “models” they’re expected to be tagged to get exposure)
“The fan demographic for a lot of these “models” are 12-15 year old girls, who are looking up to this lifestyle not knowing what they did to obtain it. Some think, “ Well, this girl is 20, on a yacht and private jet, fuck school”
Having followed the account since it’s inception, nothing shocks me anymore, and whilst some may say it is morally questionable what Tagthesponsors are doing, ultimately they are not defaming or trying to damage the image of girls for the sake of it, the damage is done as soon as the girls accept to be defecated on for $20,000, essentially it is no different from investigative journalism and the girls only have themselves to blame should they find themselves on the site..
For more information check out instagram.com/tagthesponsors and send a request and hope you get accepted.. Due to “infiltrators” who continue to report the account, tagthesponsors checks every request that comes in before accepting them, but all the information can be found on their website tagthesponsor.com so go and check it out and see what everyone is talking about, but don’t say I didn’t warn you!
