Accidents do happen from time to time. Ole Miss accidentally put an adult film star on a commemorative cup meant to honor healthcare workers. The university wanted to celebrate those who have fought on the frontlines of the coronavirus pandemic. But a misplaced image turned the cup into a joke online.
In Mississippi, there have been 89,175 confirmed cases of the coronavirus as of Sept. 11. Almost 3,000 people have also died from the virus in the state, according to the Mississippi State Department of Health. The commemorative cup has the words “Ole Miss Heroes” across it.
One photo stands out among the various pictures of nurses and doctors. The cup includes an image of adult movie actor Johnny Sins dressed like a doctor. The porn star has also became a popular meme online, highlighting the number of different occupations he’s “played.”
If anything, the mistake has made the cup even more popular, especially among Ole Miss college students. Several also inquired on Twitter how they might find the cup. One user called the image, a “superb” piece of marketing.
It is also unknown how the university made the mistake or how they acquired the photos for the cup.
