 “I’m giving away 2000x FREE iPhone XS & MUCH MORE.”

Our concerns that Robert Downey Jr. is moonlighting as an iPhone salesman have been allayed.

Over the weekend, some weird AF posts appeared on his Instagram profile saying:

“I’m giving away 2000x FREE iPhone XS & MUCH MORE on my Instagram story RIGHT NOW! Claim them before they’re ALL gone!”

Followers were directed to the Avengers star’s Story to claim said free iPhone, and his bio was also edited to direct users to a form requesting personal info.

Confirming our feeling that this was all a bit ~sus~, the actor announced on Twitter and Instagram that he was indeed hacked.

“Thank you all, I love you 3000” he signed off.

Hilariously, Ultron is the most likely suspect.

“Hackers gonna hack,” he wrote on his IG post. “Boo.”

We’re glad he’s got his ‘gram back safe’n’sound. Sucked in to anyone thinking they were gonna get a free iPhone off Iron Man, but such is life.
