It’s safe to say that 2020 probably wasn’t many people’s finest year. However, with more time than ever to spend on our phones, some controversies were bound to happen.
So here are just some of the worst influencer fails from this year:
First, when TikTok stars Charli and Dixie D’Amelio were super rude to their personal chef in their new YouTube series.
When Trisha Paytas, a YouTuber who has a history of being problematic herself, decided to insert herself into the whole thing.
And then when Dixie’s response was to upload a video of her dancing to Trisha rapping the n-word.
When YouTuber Gabi DeMartino’s OnlyFans account was suspended, after she sold a video of herself as a toddler flashing the camera.
When travel influencer Tupi Saravia photoshopped clouds — the same clouds — into a bunch of her photos.
When YouTubers Tana Mongeau and Erika Costell uploaded a video of them at a party during quarantine saying, “We don’t fucking care.”
When the mayor of LA cut the power of TikToker Bryce Hall’s mansion after he kept hosting huge parties.
In general, when influencers wouldn’t stop partying and posting about it on social media.
When makeup YouTuber Jeffree Star released a palette called “Cremated” in the middle of a pandemic.
When YouTuber Shane Dawson addressed Dramageddon 2.0 via an aggressive Instagram Live, where he denied Tati Westbrook’s claims.
When NYC influencer Arielle Charnas left the city for the Hamptons less than two weeks after testing positive for COVID-19 in March.
When Naomi Davis, an NYC parenting Instagrammer, took her family on a cross-country RV road trip at end of March, when the pandemic was hitting the tristate area hard.
When Instagram guru Rachel Hollis posted a Maya Angelou quote onto her grid without attribution, making it seem like her own.
When Bryce Hall tried to argue that ARIANA GRANDE used him and other TikTok stars for clout when she called out people for partying during the pandemic.
When the Stokes twins were charged in connection with two fake robberies that they posted as YouTube pranks.
Finally, when YouTuber Jake Paul’s home was raided by the FBI in connection with his involvement with a mall looting.
