It’s 2019, and you would think we would have stimulated so much progress by now, but instead, it’s the age where shameless idiots reign supreme. Donald Trump is president, and I candidly do not even know exactly where to begin with listing off all the stupid sh* t he believes. People are legit buying their channel into the most prestigious colleges, even though their vapid, lethargic kids have no business being there. And last-place, but not least, we have social media influencers. Being a social media personality is the easiest responsibility of all time, and they’re totally taking over all facets of media. They even have a reality testify for becoming an influencer–it’s called The Bachelor ! The committee is literally no the precondition for the job–you don’t even have to be charismatic or attractive. All you need are apps to constitute you pretty, a robot horde of followers, and the incessant yearn for notice. And yet these influencers continue to f* ck up their jobs time and time again. Let’s take a look at the some of the biggest influencer scandals and f* ck-ups that have played out on the’ Gram. Let’s also pray that John Mayer never draws this list because he’s the only reason to keep our social media active anymore.
So apparently there are people out there who will invest their occasion and fund to attend patterns to fill influencers and YouTubers. I entail, I’m someone who has been entertained by the weirdest recess of the internet, from crazy mentions in the PornHub comment section to photoshopped portraits of Guy Fieri as a Renaissance baby, and even I don’t get the appeal of YouTubers. In all such cases, Bella Thorne’s ex-girlfriend was supposed to show face at TanaCon, which was an actual meeting named after her that people willingly bought tickets to.
Long story short, TanaCon was a sh* t demonstrate. Her devotees waited outside in the heat for hours without water, tint, or meat, and Tana blamed other people for not being able to draw off the requirements of the convention. First off, Postmates will deliver to literally anywhere, guys, so famine and dehydration is completely avoidable. Just saying. Perhaps it’s because the amount of antidepressants I’m prescribes have counted me from feeling anything anymore, or maybe it’s because I have two psyche cells to scratch together, but I don’t have much sympathy for someone who waited on cable for a female Jake Paul. And second off, I’m still not persuasion has become a YouTuber is a job, so are we really scandalized that Tana couldn’t draw off doing something that was actually–wait for it–an important responsibility? I’m sorry, but what would these people have done at TanaCon to begin with? How is this interesting? Am I too old to understand this sh* t? Do I need to start get preventative Botox?
Essena O’Neill was a tiny( duh) blonde( duh) vegan( duh) Australian( duh) who got 100 000 followers for being tiny, blonde, vegan, and Australian. She perfected the science of carefully crafted smoothie bowls that were more detailed than the ceiling of the Sistine chapel, she mastered FaceTune, and she made forge laughing an art pattern. Then she shocked everyone when she decided to get super preachy and write in her captions about how f* cking forge her Instagram is. I know sh* tting on vegans is as played out of a joke as Nickleback being frightful or girls ever going to the bathroom together, but leave it to a vegan to preach. Nonetheless, I do recognize these captions and they’re route better than ones pretending to be “profound.” Like, the Buddha did not sit under a tree for 40 epoches for you to use his mentions as a caption for a picture of you sticking out your nonexistent ass. So while this isn’t a gossip in the same realm as TanaCon or some of the others on this list, within the influencer world, it was a BFG to have such a big influencer come out and declare everything is bullsh* t. In any case, the information was refreshing to determine authenticity in an otherwise totally fake room. Essena wasn’t telling us anything we don’t already know, but it was still nice to hear her own up to her sh* t.

Fake Sponsored Content
For my job, I’ve gotten pretty good at mentioning social media motifs enough to know who has imitation adherents and fake body parts. I would say all influencers are full of sh* t, but we know that’s not the case because that FitTea leads riiiight through’ em. But they do do( sorry) very phony things. I even once considered an internet personality create a forge Wikipedia page for herself, post it to her social media, and pretend like a devotee did it for her when it was clearly her that did it. LOL nice try, but just like the knock-off designer clothes you’re selling me, I ain’t buying it. But there’s one crazy strategy that even I didn’t notice: sham sponsored content. These people will legit post photographs of parts they bought, feign the issue is mailed them for free, and frame their posts as ads. Every epoch we stray further from God’s light. I’m not going to lie, having imitation patronswould trick even me into thinking that an influencer is moderately legit, as long as it’s not a shady protein totter or fit tea. Candidly, I’m not even mad about this one–I’m impressed. These people really take the” fake it til you make it” mantra pretty seriously, huh?
this girl I know really had a sponcon themed bday party. wow what an example of fake it til u make it.

technique –</ em> not size. I digress( slightly ). Alexis later alluded to the fact that he was actually a really unhealthy person to be in a relationship with and was rather emotionally abusive, specifically when it came to her heavines. So snaps for Alexis for overcoming a POS guy that everyone else dubbed the” nightmare boyfriend .”

Jack Wagner’s Wall Experiment
Jack Wagner is like a raccoon that excavates around the bottomless pit of junk that is the internet to create incredible content. Between his one-sided bromance with Dan Bilzerian to his recent excavation of Meghan McCain’s painfully clumsy tweets, he is the ultimate follow on social media. So Jack Wagner made the most wonderful social venture since Timmy Thicc( which is another subject worth the deep dive ): he established an Instagrammable mural that was only available to pose in front of if you have 20,000 adherents on social media. He even started as far as hiring a security guard who told a father-god and his young daughter that they couldn’t snap a pic because they just barely missed 20 k followers. Even legit famed actors fell for this prank and evidenced face to take imitation candids. Talk about try-hard. It’s not even a cool mural. It looks like a doodle outline by some chick that listens to Iggy Azaelea and shoplifts from Forever 21. Wagner alluded that the wall was meant to be a prank/ segment of conduct artwork, but people took it severely, so … was it genuinely?
View this post on Instagramvery exciting day today folks. to celebrate the upcoming liberation of my new picture @likeandsubscribe we created a beautiful instagramable mural specially designed for influencers. influencers wield so hard every day to curate beautiful feeds and stimulate us all, we wanted to make something specifically for them. most of the best murals in LA are already posted too often, which is why this mural is for corroborated influencers only( or people with over 20 k adherents ). We even hired an armed security team to guard the mural the coming week to make sure exclusively verified influencers are able to take photos with the mural. this is something i thought influencers would appreciate but regrettably a lot of them get very mad at this and only had bad things to say. we wanted this mural to captivate the the main theme of positive vibes and enjoy, apparently some people dont have enough of that in their own lives. this mural is not about omitting anyone. we put alot of work into making such mural great and we just wanted to showcase it in “the worlds largest” curated behavior possible. great painters pick the highest possible canvas for their masterpieces, we are doing the exact same thing but with reports. if banksy were alive today “i m feeling” he would do the exact same thing .~ ATAGEND
