Social Media “Celebrities” Lead Us Astray

nashacaciacameron

On any form of social media, there is always someone who has a large number of followers.  Many of these so-called “celebrities” often invest a majority of their time into social media; it becomes a part of their life and who they are.

Recently, with the rising popularity of Vine, YouTube, and Instagram; many LA teenagers have found themselves becoming famous due to these sites.  Many of the followers are girls from 12-15 who idolize these teens.  Many of these girls obsess over them, and work to try to get as popular as them.

These teens get put onto a pedestal because of all the attention they receive.  This year, some of them have even gone on a tour called MagCon where they have a chance to meet all of their fans.

Even though they have all this attention, they are still very young, make mistakes and aren’t careful about what they say.

A recent situation was when Viners Nash Grier, JC Caylen, and Cameron Dallas made a video called “What Guys Look For in Girls”.  This caused a huge upset because in the video they made a list of requirements that a girl should meet, like being petite or removing any and all body hair.  Although many people were upset by their insensitive sexist comments, their massive following didn’t waiver.

Another incident was when Instagram “celebrity” Acacia Clark, who has over 1.2 million followers, was accused of having naked pictures of her leak online.  Even though many of her young female followers look up to her, she didn’t act in a responsible way.

It is ridiculous that some of these teens have such a huge following on social media and are advising people on how to behave when they are still young and don’t have a clue themselves.
