In 2019, 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.
She was doing quite well for herself.Sephora and had brand endorsement deals with brands like Estee Lauder.

At number two, we have Yovana Mendoza aka Rawvana.
Yovana was best known online for her veganism.
So what did she do?
And her extremely detailed apology video addressed the reasons why she was no longer vegan.This is what is happening," she outlined problems with her health that had cropped up as a consequence of the lack of animal proteins in her diet. This included things like the fact that she had stopped menstruating and issues with her small intestine.
However, her vegan fans weren't happy.A lot of them accused her of "pretending" to be vegan just to profit from the lifestyle.
And this Twitter-user was annoyed because he felt as though she only admitted it because she was caught.
@Rawvana Just stop. Everyone is mad at you because you came out with the “truth” only because you got caught. Were… https://t.co/thytdlG4jW— Quentin Quarintino (@Quentin Quarintino)1554758479.0
In at number 3 of the problematic bunch, we have Emma Hallberg.
This nineteen-year-old was basically posing online as a black woman.
She commented on the situation, claiming that her opportunities don't come to her because she "looks black."
Some may say that this was just her personal idea of "beauty," and that she went after it, but I don't agree.blackface" and "cultural appropriation."
However, some people didn't see any problems with it claiming that "cultural appropriation" doesn't even exist.
