I wanted to make a quick post about this because I really hope as many people as possible see the recent New York Times article that was published featuring a couple of the youtube "gurus" that we love to hate; namely, the QVC sisters Elle and Blair. We all know that these girls demand outrageous amounts of money for the reviews they do on pointless crap that they likely wont ever use again after the review, but now, thanks to this article, we know exactly how much these greedy sisters demand;
$4000?! REALLY, Elle? And for "editing costs", no less. Biggest bullshit I've ever heard. The Sunlove company has been known for posting ads on Craiglist offering anywhere from $100 - $1000 for a review, so we assumed Elle had received a payment closer to the thousand dollar range, but $4000.. fuck. How COULD you give anything other than a positive review after demanding so much money?
I couldn't be happier that some of the recent news articles featuring these fraud sisters have been starting to call them out. For so long, their naive subscribers has insisted on defending them so hopefully some of these articles will help them discover that Elle and Blair really don't give a shit about their subscribers; just like everyone has been saying on this blog for months.
Even though the fraud sisters have claimed time after time that they make videos purely for their subscribers and would do it even if they weren't getting paid, these articles tell a different side. In addition to making money from youtube, Elle has also recently signed up for sponsored tweets, in which she receives $400 every time she tweets about one of the sponsored topics.
Another one of their recent bullshit scams includes the video that Blair put up today, featuring Miranda Cosgrove;
"I was already going to be in the area visiting family" - uhh ACTUALLY, you tweeted that you were going to be in Atlanta specifically for business..
Blair also tweeted something to the extent that her and Miranda were friends, just hanging out, nothing business about it..
Yes, they were clearly just hanging out, shopping, like the best friends Blair made them out to be.. I know when I go shopping with my friends, I always wear a mic pack and have cameras follow me around.. oh and I ALWAYS interview my friends about their lives...
Did anyone notice the pass that little "Hannah" was wearing around her neck? This meeting was so obviously NOT just a couple of friends hanging out. Good work, Blair's agent.
Honestly, I felt awkward watching these two shop around. Their conversation was so clearly forced and Blair had no idea what to do with herself.
On an unrelated note, how many people have been blocked by Blair recently? I was blocked, although this is not shocking, but it seems like many other people who have never even tweeted Blair in their lives have been blocked, as well.
Keep the bullshit and lies coming, ladies, you're digging yourselves deeper and deeper..
