Remember the ‘Cash Me Ousside ‘ girl? Yup, the 13-year old who disrespected her mom,stole her credit cards and dropped out of school in grade 7. You probably saw her on Dr. Phil also. Maybe you thought “What a disaster! She would never amount to to much.” Yes, I thought so too. Heck, I even used her as a teaching moment for my own kids. You better be nice and stay in school or you boys would never get anywhere in life. Man were we ever wrong. She amounted to much and is amounting to much more.
So much for that. I had not taken into consideration that this was the United States of America, where fame and fortune are always just one viral post away. It doesn’t matter what you did, legal or illegal, if it goes viral, then get ready to cash out, how bout dah?
And so it happened with this obnoxious and rude teen, Danielle Bregoli. She became a ‘viral sensation’ with over 8 million Instagram followers! Her appearances are worth upwards of $40,000 and she even stars in commercials! A celebrity! A success story! Who needs school and manners? She is projected to be a Millionaire by the end of 2017! What a sweet story of a hard working girl.
Seriously America, it’s time to wake up! You are creating idols and role models out of those who least deserve it. Turning a 13-year old, Grade 7 dropout into a celebrity? Rewarding her for being a brat? What would you do next? Make a President out of a… um, nevermind.
Just My Take…
