An Instagram celebrity was horrified after she realized she had been live-streaming herself having sex.
According to Hollywood Life, 18-year-old Instagram star Kristen Hancher was in bed with her boyfriend, Andrew Gregory, when she realized that she was live-streaming the intimate moment.
Hancher, who has 3.9 million followers, had her phone nearby, resting face down, so the stream only picked up audio. Roughly 14,000 followers were watching the live stream when Hancher realized what was happening.
The 18-year-old quickly ended the stream and deleted the video from her feed.
Hancher followed up the stream with a post apologizing to her followers.
"Whoever saw my live, I just wanna apologize," she wrote. "That was totally NOT intentional. Delete it from your mind. That was super embarrassing and super uncomfortable. But for real, guys, s[**]t happens. Accidents happen. You have to move on and pretend like it never happened and go on with your life. That’s what I’m gonna do. I apologize to all my fan pages. I know you all have been upset because I never gave you guys a full explanation. On what happened on my live. On my Instastory. I accidentally went live and found out three minutes later and 14,000 people were watching. I am so sorry."
The incident comes following a similar story in which a Louisiana woman accidentally live-streamed a nude video on her work Instagram account.
According to the Daily Mail, 61-year-old Lynn Dorsey was fired from her job as the tourism director for Webster Parish, Louisiana, after accidentally live-streaming herself nude for roughly 30 minutes.
Dorsey said that the striptease video was intended for her husband, who was away on a business trip.
"I am a new Instagram user and, unfortunately, I pressed the wrong button," she said.
Dorsey was placed on leave before being fired several weeks later.
Now, the 61-year-old has filed a lawsuit to get her job back. She is seeking paid damages, civil penalties, and attorney's fees.
The lawsuit claims that her employer's decision to fire her is not fair because it was made in private. The suit says that the Tourism Commission board for the Webster Parish Convention and Visitors Bureau did not "comply with the requirements of the Louisiana open meetings law" when the decision to fire Dorsey was made.
Dorsey was the executive director of tourism for Webster Parish for more than 10 years.
"I am mortified," Dorsey said on the night of the live-stream. "I would never send that type of content out intentionally."
