Influencers are growing in number from day to day, and many of them often dare to disturb business establishments, asking for free accommodation, food, and services in exchange for exposure.
Yet, the entire influencer culture has gotten pretty out of hand. Many influencers have started demanding rather than negotiating.
At times, it seems that anyone with a pretty face and a thousand followers on Instagram believes they’re entitled to free stuff. While many give in and make their wishes come true, many businesses are making a stand against these pseudo-celebrities.
People have started voicing their disapproval both, online and in real life. They maintain that influencers have to adapt their strategies and communication methods in order not to lose potential customers.
These shameless beings do not know limits, so from time to time, business owners decide to expose them and shame them on social media.
