We're here with Veronica Skaia of TikTok's @futurepods to talk about the latest influencer scandals and ask the bigger questions of what our outrage says about us. We dissect the paradox influencers find themselves in: Be relatable! But honest. But don't complain. But be real! We cover Mikayla Nogueira, The Try Guys' "nice guy" image and why Ned Fulmer's cheating scandal threatened their brand, the red flags of "wife guys", the YouTuber MrBeast making $53 million dollars at 23 years old (!!) and more.
We also talk Hailey Bieber (50:33) - her Call Her Daddy interview, decision to address Selena Gomez at this moment and fundamental lack of vibes.
