Update: Robert Downey Jr. has just posted a new update on his Weibo account following the original report. The new update has been posted using a OnePlus 7 Pro according to the post information. Downey Jr. revealed that it was time to upgrade his assistant to a new OnePlus 7 Pro smartphone to avoid such mistakes in the future. Downey Jr. is not the first celebrity to come under public scrutiny for posting an update using the wrong smartphone. However, this is not critical as such mistakes can happen from the social media managers of these accounts. At least, the new post was honest enough to admit that the assistant posted the update using their Huawei P30 Pro.
Hollywood celebrity Robert Downey Jr. was spotted posting about OnePlus 7 on his Weibo page. It comes as no surprise as he is a OnePlus ambassador. But the much-loved Marvel hero made a gaffe when he accidentally posted from a Huawei P30 Pro smartphone.
On July 30, Robert Downey Jr. put up a Weibo post using the Huawei flagship device rather than his endorsed smartphone brand OnePlus 7. The post has since been taken down. But the eagle eyes of users captured the evidence in a screenshot before it got erased.
OnePlus roped in the Hollywood actor earlier this year to endorse its products. But the Chinese company has been facing a lot of flak for having the money for expensive ads, but not for waterproofing its smartphones. OnePlus has continuously reiterated its commitment to offering smartphones with top-of-the-line specs and aggressive pricing. Yet all its phones lack an official IP certification for water resistance.
