Fans are defending Emma Chamberlain for attending fashion shows
3 July 2019, 15:05
Emma recently attended fashion events in New York and Paris.
Emma Chamberlain has been busy lately, putting on some pretty fancy clothes and heading to fashion weeks in both New York and Paris. But some people on the internet aren’t happy with Emma’s new lifestyle.
Some are claiming that Emma’s status as an influencer and her low-key beginnings (she’s previously made jokes across her videos that she “doesn’t shower”) mean that she doesn’t quite belong in the world of high fashion.
Emma - who has attended various events by fashion house Louis Vuitton over the past few months - is receiving backlash by some people online who think her new status in the fashion world is somehow not genuine or earned.

But not all are happy with YouTuber’s growing status as ‘real’ celebrities, and fans have had to come to Emma’s defence on Twitter.
i agree with this—— BRYANT (@BryantEslava) June 30, 2019
she’s a fashion icon & the fashion industry is inviting her these events because they love her for who she is
i hate seeing people hate on her— it’s bullshit because she’s the nicest person ever and most unproblematic https://t.co/XqVV5GGib7

i would like you to know that no matter how much hate you get, just look the other direction. those ppl arent getting to go to fashion shows with louis v etc. just know that you have more supporters than haters that can over power them. we love you @emmachamberlain 💕❤️
to the people who think bullying 18 year old emma chamberlain is a personality trait: go find a hobby, it’s pointless to hate on a successful woman who not only just hit 8M on yt but is a fashion icon who was sent by LV to attend plenty of fashion shows— ًcez is travelling // pinned (@exclvsivegrant) June 30, 2019
@emmachamberlain just turned 18, is a ambassador for Louis Vuitton, just passed 8 million subs, was invited to Paris Fashion Week, has lived on her own in LA since she was 17, and so much more. the fact that people are hating on her is infuriating. she doesn’t need this. periodt. https://t.co/j3ZS29UvJI— madison ☾ (@chambiedolz) June 29, 2019

Influencers have been having a moment in the fashion world this year - the Dolan Twins also attended a Louis Vuitton party in California with Emma and James Charles attended the Met Gala earlier this year in New York. But whether you think YouTubers belong at fashion shows or not, hating on a teenager for living her best life, seems a bit out of order, no?
Emma also touched on some of the struggles that come along with her career in a recent interview with W Magazine, explaining that she's been stabbed in the back by other YouTubers.
“I’ve dealt with a lot of people with bad intentions. Just because somebody has a following does not mean that they are a good person or a good friend,” she says. “And I should have known that. I’ve fucked myself over a few times believing that. I don’t know why I thought there was a correlation—if anything, I prefer to have friends who are maybe not even YouTubers.”
“Four of my best friends are YouTubers, but that’s just a coincidence. I’ve been backstabbed multiple times—literally, at least 10, just off the top of my head—by other YouTubers, and it’s awful.”
