Instagram influencers have evolved over the past decade into something so wild we couldn’t have seen it coming. These pseudo-celebrity personalities are popping up all across social media offering their tips on haircare, daily diets, and letting us see a small glimpse of what it’s like to live a day in their shoes. And it’s no surprise that online influencers want attention. After all, attention, negative or otherwise, often equals followers.
Whether that means going to great lengths to get the perfect snapshot to boost their like count or offending an entire nation… anything goes, really.
