Making mistakes on your resume is a sure way to get you overlooked.  Presenting yourself in a less than favorable light will do that as well, but not just on the resume.

Jobvite’s 2016 survey of 1,600 recruiters and HR professional found that 72% of respondents had a negative reaction to typos. Other social media sins include sharing photos of marijuana use (which 71% of respondents couldn’t stand), oversharing in general (60% of respondents weren’t fans), and posting pics of alcohol use (which ticked off 47% of respondents).

If your image is out there where it can be found, it better be solid.

I think there's a market for companies which scope out questionable behavior, words, photos, etc. uses biometric info  (when necessary) to identify the individuals involved and then compiles a directory of everyone on the internet who's done something which could be construed as less than 100% wholesome, to sell to companies.
