Celebrity & Influencer Controversial Content

Goals

To know if any of the potential celebrity & influencer partners in the list have any recent negative press or controversial content. Specifically focused on negative press within the first 2 pages of Google News and controversial posts in the last few months on their social channels. This information will be used to finalize a list of partners for a CBD product.

Early Findings

During our preliminary research, we were able to determine whether the first four celebrities/influencers on the provided list have/had any recent negative press or controversial content within the first 2 pages of Google News or controversial posts in the last few months on their social media channels. We then added these findings to the spreadsheet that was provided. Below is an overview of our early findings.

Abby Edwards

  • We looked through the first three pages of the Google News section for Abby Edwards and were unable to find any negative press about her.
  • Therefore, we entered "clean" into the spreadsheet for Google News.
  • We looked back through Abby's Instagram from April 2019 to present and found no controversial content like guns, sex or sexuality, drug use or alcohol, violence, racism, or any other kind of hate speech or bigotry.
  • Therefore, we entered "clean" into the spreadsheet for Instagram under Social Media Content.
  • We searched through the titles of Abby's YouTube channel back to 6 months ago. Based on the titles, we could not see any controversial content like guns, sex or sexuality, drug use or alcohol, violence, racism, or any other kind of hate speech or bigotry.
  • Most of her YouTube videos seem to be regarding fashion, school, and her personal tips and tricks for different things.
  • Therefore, we entered "clean" into the spreadsheet for YouTube under Social Media Content.

Ajiona Alexus

  • We looked through the first three pages of the Google News section for Ajiona Alexus and were unable to find any negative press about her.

  • Therefore, we posted the dates of these posts in the spreadsheet.
  • We also thought it was important to note that Ajiona posts several revealing pictures in swimming suits, but nothing overly sexual on that front.
  • Ajiona does not post much content on her YouTube channel. In fact, the most recent one was from a year ago.
  • However, based on the titles, we could not see any controversial content like guns, sex or sexuality, drug use or alcohol, violence, racism, or any other kind of hate speech or bigotry.
  • Therefore, we entered "clean" into the spreadsheet for YouTube under Social Media Content.

While we were able to provide a background check for negative press or controversial content for the first three celebrities/influencers in the provided list, we were unable to check for the rest of the people in the list. Because of this, we suggest diving deeper with additional research to provide a background check for negative press or controversial content for the remainder of the celebrities/influencers in the list, using the first three pages of Google News and the last 4-5 months of their social media posts, focusing on Instagram and YouTube. We will then provide our findings into the spreadsheet mentioned above as either "clean" for no negative press or controversial content, or we will provide a description of the negative press/content and the date of the post or article.
Alternatively, we can provide a background check for negative press or controversial content for the next 20 celebrities/influencers in the provided list, behind those that were covered in this preliminary research. We will base this background check on the first three pages of Google News and the last 4-5 months of their social media posts, focusing on Instagram and YouTube. We will then provide our findings into the spreadsheet mentioned above as either "clean" for no negative press or controversial content, or we will provide a description of the negative press/content and the date of the post or article.
Alternatively, we can provide a background check for negative press or controversial content for the next 10 celebrities/influencers in the provided list, behind those that were covered in this preliminary research. We will base this background check on the first three pages of Google News and the last 4-5 months of their social media posts, focusing on Instagram and YouTube. We will then provide our findings into the spreadsheet mentioned above as either "clean" for no negative press or controversial content, or we will provide a description of the negative press/content and the date of the post or article.
