YouTube role models

Well hello lovelies,

I have posted about YouTube before. But I wanted to have another, let's say moan about YouTube lol. 

I have seen some posts recently on younger youtuber channels. About how they have posted some thing. Either a photo of them in their bikini or a video of them out drinking. They have actually complained about the nasty comments people have left. 

The reason I sound surprised at this, is because they are surprised that people disapprove!! 

I know as a 26 year old mother and I don't class myself as particularly old, I wouldn't want my young, impressionable daughter to look up to some of these young adults. 

They always bang on about how they are just normal people too and how they have a life outside YouTube and that people request them to vlog, then abuse them because of their content. 

What I personally think they don't understand is sometimes they are doing stuff that is not appropriate for younger viewers. Now I'm not saying don't wear a bikini or go out, that's not what I'm getting at. I just think that posting a picture of you in a very small (porn star bikini in my opinion) is extremely inappropriate for younger viewers. I'm not saying don't celebrate or embrace your body. I am saying there is a time and place for it and social media isn't it. 

The same goes for the ones who are vlogging themselves out drinking. Why do they think that that is appropriate footage for a young kid to see. To think it's ok to go out with a short see your breakfast skirt on and fall out of a club at drunk at stuipd o'clock, is ok for younger people to see and look up to. Again I'm not saying don't do it. Either have class about it or don't put it on social media. 

These people have put themselves in the position for young boys and girls to look up to and they are doing inappropriate things. So if you put yourself out there. Don't moan about the criticism!! You put yourself in the position for people to look up to you, so act in a classy manner that you would want your kids to act like. Act like someone you would want your kid to look up too. 

I am really annoyed at the moment with some of the youtubers they have just got some content on there channels so wrong. Have a life on the camera. But also have one off the camera I say. 

What do you all think??

Speak soon lovelies.
