In the world of influencers, there's no shortage of ways to make money. There's always some sort of brand to promote (Flat Tummy Tea, anyone?), a cause to get behind, or a controversial way to stir up drama and get your followers talking. There's no such thing as bad press, right?
Well, I think it's also important to remember that influencers are only happy when they're the ones making the money - as soon as fans start to profit off them, especially in a negative situation, the tables turn very quickly. The latest celebrity to fall victim to this is Jordyn Woods, and her mom is furious that people are making money from her daughter's cheating scandal.
As the whole world has heard by now, a few weeks ago it was rumoured that Kylie Jenner's BFF, Jordyn Woods, was caught hooking up with Khloe Kardashian's baby daddy, Tristan Thompson. According to Jordyn things weren't all that intense - the two just shared a kiss with no passion, but it was still dramatic enough for the internet to blow up over the news.
Since the scandal, a lot of people have established themselves as "Team Jordyn" and are backing her up in the battle of Woods vs. Kardashian-Jenners, so much so that they've even started to make merchandise from Jordyn's Red Table Talk where she (very subtly) threw shade at Khloe and Tristan's "situation".
Jordyn's Momager Elizabeth Woods shared the above photo to Instagram yesterday with a caption reading,
"We are well aware that many people have been selling merch. If you are aware of any companies selling merchandise and trying to benefit from our situation, please tag them below. We would like for the world to know that we have not authorized any of this and have not profited from any of these sales whatsoever. Thank you for all the support and love #teamigotthis".
Clearly, Elizabeth isn't too impressed with the fans out there who are trying to make a quick buck off of her family's situation.
The entire situation has been pressing on Jordyn and her family. Jordyn admitted that it took her some time to be able to leave her house after news of the scandal dropped, and she even opened up on Red Table Talk about how her little sister was getting bullied at school because of drama that had nothing to do with her.
It's been several weeks since we first heard about Jordyn and Tristan, and in that time things seem to have simmered down, although we're all still patiently waiting to see the drama unfold on this season of Keeping Up with the Kardashians.
