Okay, believe me, I was seriously considering writing about the massive news that one of our favourite Insta accounts posted a day before. Yup, of course, I am talking about the bomb that Diet Prada dropped on us. We’ve to give it to them for this epic April Fools’ Day prank they pulled-off. Unlike the ones we shared before, this one definitely didn’t go wrong and hit the right nerve.
On Monday afternoon, they put up a post saying that they are selling their account on eBay. Here’s what their caption said:
Hi Dieters! On December 14th, 2014, we started Diet Prada for shits and giggles. 4+ years and 1.2 million followers later and look at what we’ve achieved together. There have been too many epic takedowns/callouts to recap, but nothing has meant more than growing the community and meeting/chatting with so many amazing people through this account. Recently, we’ve been listening to your feedback the past several months and you’re all right…we shouldn’t be doing any sponsored content. Although we’ve been doing less than a dozen per year, it’s more important to maintain its integrity. Honestly, the Kardashians don’t even pay us enough to keep talking about them and are difficult to work with lol, so it’s back to the work force for us! We’ve got bills to pay just like everyone else 🙂. Although we’re moving on from this phase of our life, we still believe wholeheartedly in the mission of Diet Prada, so we’re putting up the account and password on eBay. Anyone who is serious about bidding, we just ask that you DM or e-mail us first so we can make sure to find the best fit possible! FYI the winning bid also includes our personal mobile numbers and e-mails to consult during the transition. Link in bio to bid. Love you all and DP 4ever 🙌.
It was such a heartfelt message and for Dieters, like us, was a piece of shocking news. But that wasn’t all. To show how serious they were with regards to this, they posted follow up Insta stories, so that the few people who guessed that it might be an April Fools’ Day prank can rest assured it wasn’t.
Of course, the ones that did fall for the prank and went to bid on eBay were directed to the page that had ‘April Fools!’ written on it. They did clarify that it was a prank the next day on their stories.
Well, any Dieters in the house? What did you think of this prank? Let us know in the comments below.
