Do Influencers/Celebrities can control your decisions?

Xavier Gonzalez

Can celebrities and influencers have control over what people do and think? Do people have a choice to listen?
Some people think celebrities can influence others to do things that some
people think are rude or hurtful to their life. Others believe that it is their choice. People can follow them or not. A good example is that several people have been arguing with some influencers on Youtube promoting sus (meaning suspicious things that might be questionable or out of a personal characteristic). Some content on Youtube might sound offensive to the LGBTQ community.
An influencer called Adin Ross is getting talked about all over Youtube about being a sus and emasculating men.
On February 21, 2022, another Youtuber known as SoLLUMINATI, uploaded a video saying that Adin Ross needs to stop emasculating men, stop with the sus jokes because it can influence a young child to think that it is ok. Also, remember that many people get bullied and killed for being homosexual. Adin Ross replied: “That is crazy! You are telling me I influenced a whole community to do something I did not tell them to do!”
Ross, also said: “I have grown since the last year, and my content has changed.”
People have put their thoughts on this subject.
SoLUMINATI is doing these videos for self-promotion and views. If that was a real concern, it could be talked with Ross through a Direct Message.
This is a great topic that everybody should talk about because a lot of people have different opinions about it.
So what do you think? Do you get influenced by Youtubers and Celebrities? Do you think you have a choice?
