On January 3, host Sébastien Diaz asked a very good question on Twitter: “Will certain brands have the intelligence to cancel their partnership with certain“ influencers ”who are gleefully flaunting themselves in the South while ignoring instructions from Public Health? “
We know the “touristatas”, a term coined by my colleagues from Newspaper, to designate tourists who do not respect the rules.
But touristotons are these influencers who multiply the selfies on Instagram, their feet in the sand and their buttocks in a swimming pool … while Ottawa has been saying since March not to TRAVEL!
UNA CERVEZA, POR FAVOR
I went for a little tour on the Instagram page of “denounce.influencers” where a Robin Hood of the web lists the worst stupidities of our “influencers” who left for the South. I confess to you that I did not know if I should laugh or cry.
How to respond when Maggiefromthebloc, 51,000 subscribers, says, “The only thing you blame me for is going on vacation while others can’t. But you chose to work in health care my dear, you chose to go to work changing diapers, you just had to choose another career, I’m so sorry. ”
Are we to take our word for Polinagrace, 181,000 subscribers, who “shakes the candy” in Costa Rica in November and who tells us that she will be quarantined on her return?
What about MarieMaxime who left for Mexico with her two new friends, right breast and left breast, and who informs us: “You have to take a COVID test to come back to Canada. It costs a cost. Since it costs us a cost to come back, we extend for another week. “
What about the relentless logic of Karl Sabourin, ex ofOD South Africa, who justified his catamaran trip to Mexico: “Here is the high season. It doesn’t matter if I’m the one going on the boat with lots of people I gather, it’s going to be the same. Catamarans don’t leave here if they’re not full, and they’re all full. “
And then there are all these influencers, whose main occupation seems to be to show their swollen anatomy (arms for men, buttocks and breasts for women) and who photograph themselves in the middle of a party, zero masks, glued glued , with the alcohol flowing freely.
At least the touristatas that Clara Loiseau told us about were discreet and avoided the cameras. The touristotons, them (and especially them), are proud to show their tan to the whole world.
At least Liberal MP Pierre Arcand didn’t show up in Speedo, with biceps open, a glass of pina colada in hand, when he left for Barbados …
I HAVE MY TRIP
I don’t know what saddens me the most: that companies (like Air Canada) pay influencers to go for a walk with their ass under the palm trees. Or that people so devoid of common sense, so narcissistic, could be seen as having the slightest influence on anyone.
