Tyrone May will soon learn his fate with the Penrith Panthers set to hold a board meeting on Wednesday.

May was stood down by the club over a controversial post on social media after Penrith’s grand final win.

The 25-year-old was fined $7,500 by the NRL after “he acted contrary to the best interests of the game” by sharing a post on Instagram which “did not align with the values of the game.”

May’s post referenced a sex tape scandal he was involved in in 2019.

Following the grand final win, he uploaded a series of photos with lyrics from ‘Fair Trade’ by Drake as the caption.

The first photo had nothing to do with the game he just played, instead it was an image of himself in a suit attending Parramatta Local Court for his trial. The following photos celebrated the win.

“And the dirt that they threw on my name/turned to soil and I grew up out it/time for y’all to figure out what y’all gon’ do about it,” May wrote in the caption

May pleaded guilty to four counts of intentionally recording an image without consent and in January, 2020, was sentenced to 300 hours of community service, as part of a three-year community corrections order.

One of his victims sought damages for “psychological injury” caused by the fallout from the illegally filmed sex tape.

The post immediately sparked outrage from rugby league fans given May had attempted to portray himself as a victim after pleading guilty to a disgusting crime.

Three days after the grand final, the post was deleted before he later shut down his Instagram account completely.

Panthers deputy chairman and club legend Greg Alexander urged some of the playing group to “pull their heads in” after the club was criticised for several players posting “out of line” things on social media following the grand final.

“There have been a couple of social media things that haven’t impressed me,” Alexander said on SEN radio.

“I think a couple of our players need to pull their heads in after what they’ve posted on social media.

“It gets a bit out of control. I don’t follow social media.

“I’ve had people tell me about what’s been posted, and some of it shouldn’t have been.

Given May has not signed a new deal for 2022, his contract is due to expire in five days regardless of the board meeting.

If he is spared the axe, it more or less means that the Panthers will offer him a new deal.

May has played 56 games for the Panthers since making his NRL debut in 2017. He missed the entire 2019 season due to being stood down over the sex tape scandal.

Instagram Is Rolling Out Reels Replies, And Will Be Testing A New Feature Which Informs …

Published

instagram-is-rolling-out-reels-replies,-and-will-be-testing-a-new-feature-which-informs-…

Instagram has added a few more social features to the platform, with Reels Replies being rolled out. Along with the Replies, anew feature is being tested that shows when two users are active together in the same chat.

Reels has been performing much better than perhaps even Instagram ever anticipated. The TikTok-inspired new video format (which officially claims to have absolutely no relation to the former) had some trouble really finding its footing initially. However, Reels has grown massively and while it may not be a source of the most direct competition to TikTok, it is indeed a worthy alternative.

Reels has grown to the point that it has a massive creator program attached to it, and the video format has even been migrated to Facebook with the goal of generating further user interest there. Naturally, with such a successful virtual goldmine on its hands, Instagram has been hard at work developing new features and interface updates for Reels, integrating it more and more seamlessly into the rest of the social media platform. Features such as Reels Replies are a major part of such attempts at integration.

Reels Visual Replies are essentially just what they sound like: A Reel that is being used to reply to someone. It’s a feature that’s been seen frequently across TikTok as well. Reel Replies essentially take a user’s comments, and reply to them in video format. The comment will then show up within the Reel itself as a text-box, taking up some amount of space, and showing both the user who issued said comment along with the text. The text-box is apparently adjustable, with users having the ability to move it around and change its size depending on where it obstructs one’s Reel the least.

Overall, it’s a fun addition to the Reels format, even if the credit should be going to TikTok first. At any rate, it’s an example of Instagram really utilizing Reels’ social media capabilities, outside of just serving it up as a form of entertainment.

Speaking of social media capabilities, a new feature might help alleviate one of the most common frustrations encountered across all such platforms. Isn’t it annoying when you see that a friend’s online, but isn’t replying to your chat? Sure, they’ve probably just put their phone down to run a quick errand, but there’s no way for you to know, right? Well, there sort of is now! Instagram is beta testing a new feature via which if both users are active within a chat, the platform will display that accordingly. It’s a work-around, sure, and one that’s currently being tested for usefulness, but it’s still a very nice, and even fresh, addition to the social media game.

Now, the active status will only appear when you are both active at the same time.#Instagram #instgramnewfeature@MattNavarra @instagram @alex193a pic.twitter.com/2chGZP9hr4
