In 2020, you really can’t get away with being a problematic person. The internet will call you out and cuss you until you deeply regret posting that selfie that exposed your overwhelming sense of ignorance or privilege. I mean, Instagram “influencers” of all people should understand the importance of being socially sensitive, but a whole bunch of these guys don’t seem to be aware of this little fact.
We have a recent addition to the list of idiotic influencers on social media and you would not believe what she had the audacity to post. Knowing that I live in a generation in which these are society’s role-models really makes me re-think my entire existence.
Here are a few of the most shocking public scandals to ever grace our screens… or phones… whatever.Firstly, we have Olivia Jade.
You may remember Olivia from her presence on Instagram or from her YouTube Channel, @OliviaJade, where she would post beauty and lifestyle videos. Or, better yet, you may just know her as Lori Loughlin’s daughter.She was doing quite well for herself.
She managed to launch her own make-up line with Sephora and had brand endorsement deals with brands like Estee Lauder.But when news broke that she cheated her way into the University of Southern California, everything started going downhill.
According to court documents, Olivia’s mother, Lori, had paid the rowing coach a healthy sum of five hundred thousand dollars so that her daughter could be accepted into the university as an athlete… Hm…And Liv played along with it all, posting pictures of herself at “training.”
Academic integrity doesn’t seem to be a thing that people like Olivia Jade respect. The backlash of her and her mother’s actions came all at once. A number of brands dropped her as an ambassador and removed her from press events.
Even though the beauty guru has not completely deleted her social media profiles, including her YouTube channel, which is still home to all of her videos, the activity on them is minimal these days.At number two, we have Yovana Mendoza aka Rawvana.
This one’s a classic case of exploitation of the masses.Yovana was best known online for her veganism.
