The 69-year-old former Governor of Texas, Rick Perry is a politician of American origin. He is the present United States Secretary of Energy and is a member of the Cabinet of Donald Trump. The 47th and longest-running ex-governor of Texas became more popular when he confirmed his participation in ‘Dancing with the Stars,’ in its 23rd season. He was partnered with the professional dancer and choreographer, Emma Slater. If this is not all, Perry also had a position among the board of directors of ‘Energy Transfer Partners’ in the year 2015, from which he resigned towards the end of 2016.
Recently, on the social media platform of Instagram, Rick Perry was found to get victimized by a post of which, Perry took a screenshot and posted on his wall. The screenshot revealed that Instagram is going to make alterations in the users’ privacy settings, changing all private accounts to be public. Not only that, the post proceeded by claiming that all the deleted messages will be recovered by the company, and the photos of Instagram use may also be used for the company’s own reasons.
The former Texas Governor did not repost the claims for any awareness attempt. The reason of him taking a screenshot of the false post and reposting it on his wall was that, in the post, it was stated that the users who don’t want to have these changes done to their accounts could stop the process by reposting the stated post.
The post read, “With this statement, I give notice to Instagram it is strictly forbidden to disclose, copy, distribute, or take any other action against me based on this profile and/or its contents,” The ending line to the post was, “Instagram DOES NOT HAVE MY PERMISSION TO SHARE PHOTOS OR MESSAGES,”
The message has been deleted after a spokesperson of Facebook, and Instagram confirmed that the post was a hoax.
