OnePlus had recently bagged US actor Robert Downey Jr, well known for portraying Tony Stark aka the Iron Man in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. The actor has been promoting the OnePlus 7 pro smartphone since.

In a recent post on Chinese social media website ‘Weibo’, Downey accidentally made a promotional OnePlus 7 Pro post, using a Huawei P30 Pro smartphone. The post was quickly taken down later, but not before screenshots of the post went viral.

 

Now Downey has finally responded to the controversy. “Well, I guess it’s time to upgrade my assistant to a new OnePlus 7 pro so mistakes don’t happen again,” he said in another post.
