Cindy has been in the of some social media drama lately and from all indications, she is not prepared to address it. Recently, a fashion entrepreneur called her out saying she is ungrateful and not honoring her words. The lady claimed she had sent her clothes and shoes and asked for a shoutout on social media in return. She claimed that Cindy had worn the clothes and shoes without acknowledging the source.
Just as this lady came up to call Cindy out, some other fashion businesses came up saying they had similar experiences with her. They narrated how they sent her stuff and she wore them without tagging them on her Instagram page. There are some screenshots of the conversations she had with them.
From my standpoint, those conversations clearly stated those things they claim they sent were just gifts. They also did not state that she is to market and publicize the items for them. From what was seen, it was a shoutout they asked for and she thanked them in her dm too.
And for the people who think she should not have asked for payment to post those pictures with their tags, do not forget that a brand is built with resources.
The only place I fault Cindy is that she should have returned the items when they refused to pay her and not ignore them. Aside from not returning the items, I do not see anything wrong in accepting gifts and thanking the donor in their private messages. If the business owners wanted more, they should have been specific too.
Case closed. Quit bashing Cindy, this is clearly a case of exploitation and cyberbullying.
