17 Influencers Who Got Immediately Called Out On Their BS

So. Much. Mess.

The influencer industry is a messy one. It feels like every day, someone is getting called out for saying something incredibly out-of-touch, for photoshopping their pics, or starting fights online.

But if there's one thing people on the internet are going to do, it's call out bullshit when they see it.

Here are some of the best times that influencers got pulled up after acting out:

1. YouTuber Haley Pham was labeled as entitled for saying that her holiday to Greece was "not fun."
