Eric Schmidt Closed His Instagram Account After It Was Revealed He Followed Lots Of Half-Naked Women
Eric Schmidt once famously, and somewhat creepily, said, "If you have something that you don't want anyone to know, maybe you shouldn't be doing it in the first place."
It appears as though Schmidt may not have been following his own advice, because he shut down his Instagram after being caught following a lot of women in barely-there outfits.
Last Thursday, Sam Biddle at Valleywag revealed that Schmidt followed a lot of young women who take photos of themselves wearing bikinis or posing provocatively on Instagram. This, as Biddle noted, was in stark contrast to the people Schmidt followed on Twitter, which are mostly boring tech types.
After Schmidt's Instagram account became public, it was shut down.
The Internet keeps creating new ways for people to do things, and one of those things is embarrass themselves. In a world in which actual sex scandals are a dime a dozen, oceans of fully x-rated pornography is a click away, and politicians are destroying their careers by sexting around pictures of their sex organs, a habit of following sexy women on Instagram is barely worth mentioning. But, in these cases, who you are matters almost as much as what you are observed to be doing. And public knowledge of this Instagram habit was apparently enough to prompt one of the most famous and successful executives in the tech industry to reconsider doing it.
