Drake Just Went On A Hentai Barrage On Instagram

Hello, welcome to the end of the week. I’m here to send you off into the night with the news that rapper Drake has posted a bunch of anime porn, aka hentai on his main Instagram account. The account has 124M followers, for the record, which is more than the entirety of Crunchyroll’s viewership in 2021. The porn is seemingly part of his marketing push for his new album “Her Loss.” Just one more thing the rapper has done recently that’s caught the eyes of the internet and made a lot of folks stop and go “…What? Why?”

Let’s take a quick detour before we hop straight into the hentai posting to provide some context. Today, Drake released a new collaborative album with 21 Savage. To help promote Her Loss, the new record, Drake and 21 Savage have been on a wild whirlwind marketing blitz complete with a fake promo for a non-existent NPR Tiny Desk Concert starring the duo and a completely fabricated Vogue cover. Weird stuff! But last night, Drake decided to take his marketing of Her Loss to a whole new level, and uh…just posted straight-up anime porn on his main, official Instagram.

Justin Bieber on Instagram

As of 6:15 EST p.m. the photos are still up on his Instagram story. He posted four different hentai images last night accompanied by various English captions, including “Mood at midnight” and “Goodbye my dear husband.” Enough posts, in other words, that the porn doesn’t seem to be a mistake from a random image he found or something. Here is a censored look at the images:

The album hasn’t been out long, but it’s led to some controversy involving Megan Thee Stallion. In one song on the album, Drake seemingly references a reported 2020 shooting involving Stallion and Canadian rapper, Tory Lanez. Allegedly, Lanez shot Megan Thee Stallion’s feet when she tried to walk away from an argument. In the song, Circo Loco, Drake appears to reference this event when he raps, “This bitch lie ’bout getting shots but she still a stallion.”

Justin Bieber Named As Highest Paid Instagram Influencer.

For non-celebrities, Instagram is a tool to stay connected, share memories and make friends. But celebrities and influencers can make a living just by posting sponsored content on their carefully-curated feed.

NetCredit created an algorithm to estimate the world’s top-paid Instagram influencers from different countries. The loan lending company first built a list of the most-followed stars from each country and used figures from Hopper, an Instagram scheduling platform, to estimate the “fee-per-ad” for each country’s celebrities.

NetCredit then counted the number of sponsored posts made by each influencer in 2021 and multiplied this by the known or estimated ad fee.

Stratford, Ont. native and global pop star Justin Bieber is at the top of Canada’s list, having earned US$4.43 million off 13 Instagram posts in 2021.

Canada’s second highest-earning Instagrammer is wildlife photographer Paul Nicklen, who earned US$2.3 million in 2021 off the app.

While Bieber is the top-paid influencer in Canada, his earnings are merely a drop in the bucket in comparison to the rest of the world.

In the U.S., Ellen DeGeneres curated almost one sponsored Instagram post per week, totaling about US$33.73 million per year. This makes her the top-earning influencer in North America, but number four worldwide, according to NetCredit.

The top two highest-earning Instagram influencers worldwide are not actors or musicians but instead play the most popular sport worldwide: soccer (or football as they call it).

Cristiano Ronaldo, who hails from Portugal, earned US$85.2 million in 2021 just from Instagram-sponsored ads. The second top earner is Lionel Messi, of Argentina, who earned US$71.96 million.

Cricket star Virat Kohli of India came a distant third to Messi, earning US$36.66 million in 2021 from Instagram content mostly from CBD sales and other music contracts..

Also among the top 10 highest-paid Instagram influencers is Beyonce with US$33.7 million, Jisoo, a Korean singer, with US$18.89 million, Anitta, a Brazilian singer, with US$16 million and Dua Lipa, who is from the U.K, with US$13 million.

“Want to make millions from Instagram ads? It helps to be American or in sports,” NetCredit’s post reads. “Female musicians are the clearest ‘demographic’ at the top, with Beyonce, Jisoo, Anitta, and Dua Lipa raking in a combined US$81,671,561 per year from sponsored posts.”

Kanye West’s Instagram account has been suspended once again, four days after he returned to the platform.

Instagram’s parent company, Meta, confirmed West’s ban to Billboard yesterday (October 31), citing an unspecified violation of the platform’s policies. The spokesperson did not identify which specific posts led to West’s most recent suspension, but said Instagram was forced to remove content from the rapper’s feed, as well as place restrictions on his ability to comment, post, and send direct messages.

Meta also revealed that West’s recent violation incurred a 30-day suspension, a mere weeks after his account was restricted following antisemitic posts in early October. Prior to his ban on Sunday (October 30), West uploaded a graphic image of Emmett Till, a 14-year-old African American boy who was tortured and lynched in 1955 after being accused of offending a white woman.

West accompanied that post with images of businessman Ari Emanuel, who recently wrote in a Financial Times op-ed that West’s business partners should stop working with him. The rapper called on Emanuel to “find a place for the Donda Academy kids to go to school”, following the closure of the West-owned academy – and its basketball team – after his antisemitic remarks.

Elsewhere in the post – which is still up on West’s Instagram account – he commented on the ramifications of his statements, writing that “[this is] what modern post social media #Blackmirror warfare looks like.” The rapper likened to the backlash he’s received to “economic lynching” and “digital lynching”, before declaring “everyone in the world! Take me as an example of what will happen if you show any frustration.”

According to Rolling Stoneafter receiving the 30-day suspension from Instagram, West then posted on Parler, the right-leaning social media site that touts itself as an “uncancelable free speech platform”. Its parent company said it intended to sell Parler to Ye last month.

On Parler, West claimed his Instagram ban was enforced after he shared a screenshot of a text exchange with a person he said was record executive Russell Simmons. Ye posted that screenshot – which is not available on his Instagram account – to Parler.

After Simmons suggested West consider coming abroad to rebuild his empire, West replied, “I’m staying in America. I gotta get the Jewish business people to make the contracts fair. Or die trying.” The rapper accompanied that Parler post with the caption: “Got kicked off Instagram for 30 days for telling Russell Simmons that I was going to make ‘you know who have better contracts and business practices. Jesus is king.”

West’s most recent Instagram ban – he was also banned for 24 hours in March – came two days after he attempted to apologise for similarly offensive remarks regarding George Floyd, who he falsely claimed had died from fentanyl. “I want to apologize [for] hurting [Floyd’s family],” West said of his statements, “Because right now… I know how it feels to have a knee on my neck.”

Instagram Live Producer News

Disclaimer: Live Producer is limited access at this time.

How do I go live on Instagram using streaming software?

Instagram Live Producer will allow you to go live on Instagram using streaming software (OBS, Streamlabs, etc.) through a stream key. This integration opens up production features outside the traditional phone camera, including additional cameras, external microphones, and graphics. This feature is only available on instagram.com.

Tech requirements

Before broadcasting live with streaming software, make sure that your video meets the following specifications. Learn more about setting up streaming software.

Our recommended settings have been tested to optimize the quality and experience for viewers on many devices and networks:

Video format

  • 9×16 aspect ratio (recommended but not required)
  • 720p @ 30 fps (note: 30 fps is recommended, but Live Producer can also support 60 fps if desired. When using 60 fps, the Live Producer preview screen will still display 30 fps. This is normal and we are currently investigating how to correct this.)
    • Resolution: 720×1280
    • Video bitrate range: 2,250–6,000 Kbps
    • Alternatives (supported but not recommended): 480p @ 30 fps, 360p

Audio format—the settings below are the default for most streaming platforms, including OBS:

  • Sample rate: 44.1 KHz
  • Channel layout: Stereo
  • Bit rate: up to 256 Kbps

Setup

  1. Select which streaming software you’ll be using for your event.
    • Examples include Streamlabs, OBS and Streamyard
  2. Open your streaming software interface and locate where to input your URL and stream key.
    • The URL and stream key (see below for more details) will allow you to broadcast your streaming software setup directly to Instagram Live.
  3. Open instagram.com and click the “Add post” button (plus symbol inside a square) and select “Live” from the dropdown menu.
  4. Within the “Go live” screen, enter the title of your live video and select your audience: “Practice” will not broadcast to anyone and “Public” will broadcast to your followers as a normal live video would.
  5. You will then see a screen that contains your unique URL and stream key, with instructions on how to use them.
    • You have the option to either copy the stream key or reset it in the event you need a new one. Note: The stream key is not static, and will refresh each time you use Live Producer.

Streaming to Instagram Live

  1. Within your streaming software, use your URL and stream key to add Instagram Live as your streaming endpoint.
    • Note: Instagram Live will need to be added as a “Custom RTMP”. Selecting Custom RTMP will allow you to add a URL and stream key. The location of where to input a custom RTMP differs between platforms, but most often can be found in stream settings.
  2. Once you’ve set up your stream to look how you want, start it on your streaming software. Within the Live Producer viewer on instagram.com, you’ll see a preview of what your stream will look like on Instagram Live. The Live Producer preview should mirror what you’ve set up on the streaming software. The preview can take a few seconds to display in the preview screen.
  3. Once you’ve seen and confirmed your preview, click “Go live” within Live Producer to start the stream. Once live, the “Comments” tab will let you read and respond to comments from viewers.
  4. When you want to end the live video, click “End live video”.

NOTE: If you end your stream in the streaming software before you end your Live Producer broadcast, the live video will continue while displaying the last frame received from the streaming software. In order to end your live video smoothly, end the broadcast on Live Producer first before ending the stream on the streaming software.

Comment Management

  1. Once live, the “Comments” tab will let you read and respond to comments from viewers.
  2. Clicking a comment will toggle a menu with the following options:
    • “Report”, which will flag the comment for inappropriate behavior.
    • “Pin comment”, which will keep the comment at the top of the feed. You can remove a pinned comment by clicking the “X” to the right.

Saving your post live video VOD

You can view, share and download your completed broadcast within the Live Archive. To access the Live Archive:

  2. Within this menu, tap the Archive button.
  3. Tap the dropdown at the top of the screen and switch from “Stories Archive” to “Live Archive.”
  4. You will then see your past completed live videos and be able to share to Instagram or download to your device.
