Blessed with the ability to somehow make everything about themselves, some brave social media stars have addressed the conflicts happening in streets across America by showing up to damaged storefronts and using them as props for their photo shoots. As if things weren't dystopian enough right now.
In videos being circulated around the internet, "influencers" have been spotted in action posing in front of broken glass or boarded up shops (with the help, of course, of their Instagram boyfriends/photographers). Unsurprisingly, they're both in L.A.
Here's the powerful moment a chick in yoga pants and a sports bra confronted the solemn site of a looted T-Mobile.

Worse than her, however, is this girl rolling up to an unsuspecting worker who is putting up boards, asking to hold his power drill for a sec, and then immediately driving off in her Mercedes jeep once she gets the shot. Not to mention the part when she pulls down the bandana covering her face to talk right into his. There's still a pandemic happening!
Thanks to some Twitter sleuths, it appears the poser in question is Fiona Moriarty-Mclaughlin, a "journalist" for the right-wing Washington Examiner whose now-deleted social handles were @factswithfiona. Wow. Shocking.

Remember folks, it's important to use social media to address the meaningful unrest being vocalized across the country. But not like this. Please, not like this.
