The online tool even got political, when asked, “What do you think of Theresa May’s efforts to navigate Brexit?” Automated Victoria responded with a thumbs-up.
Victoria Beckham has 3.1 million followers on Facebook. Before the social media scandal, the celeb posted a video to her page explaining the marketing feature. She said, “I wanted to let you know that the incredible team at Facebook have created a chatbot version of me, Victoria Beckham, so I can virtually keep you up to date with everything that’s happening during London Fashion Week.”
