If one thing’s for sure, no matter what’s going on in the world, no matter how bad, how serious it gets or what the potential consequences may be, people will do stupid stuff for social media. But that stupid stuff does not go unnoticed. After a number of social media “influencers” were seen to be exploiting Black Lives Matter protests for photoshoot opportunities, they started getting called out.
Ironically, perhaps, the one doing the calling out goes by the name of Influencers in the wild. George Resche, the man behind the account, says he originally started the profile as a joke, but it gained steam and gained a massive following. Now he’s using his platform to call out those taking advantage of the protests for personal gain.
