The most recent example of both is Lisa Li, a Chinese beauty and glamour e-celeb who blogs about her pretty upscale life to an audience of over one million Weibo followers.
Li is the quintessential “social media influencer.” She flaunts exotic vacations and designer clothes, and her meals are carefully stage managed — and expensive.
The reality, as shocked fans just found out, is something entirely different.
Lisa Li lives in a shitpile of trash, mold, and feces.
She was exposed by her landlord, Ms. Chen, who was furious with the streamer for damaging the apartment and refusing to pay multiple utility bills amounting to thousands of yuan. Li ignored a number of phone calls before Chen decided to give a guided tour of the apartment to Pear Video, a Chinese media outlet.

Chen told Pear Video she tried to hire professional cleaners, but they didn’t want to go anywhere near Li’s apartment, according to BBC.
The stomach-turning footage shows piles of dog poop, trash, and dirt decorating every part of Li’s festering shithole.
Chen said she had no choice but to contact the police about her damaged property and the unpaid bills.
Pear Video’s viral footage instantly made the disgraced streamer the subject of Chinese internet’s mockery.
“More than 60,000 users have commented on her page, many saying they were unfollowing her and calling her ‘fake,'” reports the BBC.
It’s easy to sympathize with Ms. Chen for her damaged property, but she should do a bit of research on prospective tenants. It’s no secret that livestreamers tend to be filthy and mentally ill degenerates.
Consider popular Twitch streamer Eloise, who usually streams Hearthstone in front of a computer. Sometimes she shows off more of her apartment, and it’s sickening.
And this dude:

Even one of Twitch’s most popular (and undoubtedly one of the most wealthy) streamers, Asmongold, lives in a sea of trash.
Maybe someone needs to break Jordan Peterson out of rehab to tell these disgusting slobs to clean their rooms.
