🤯💨 Fart Prank Backfires! YouTube Starlet, Colleen Ballinger, Lets One Rip and Sponsorships Disappear! 💔💸
TL;DR: YouTube sensation, Colleen Ballinger, better known as her hilarious alter-ego Miranda Sings, has sponsors cutting the cheese…err…ties, following a controversial resurfaced clip from one of her old shows. In the clip, she’s seen executing a cringey fart prank on a teenage fan. How’s that for a whiff of karma? 💔💨
Okay, okay…let’s break wind…ahem…break it down, shall we? 😂
The clip that’s currently causing a stink online shows Ballinger, in character as Miranda Sings, inviting a young fan onto the stage for a prank that was supposed to be gas…umm…a gas. The fan was asked to lie on her back, legs in the air, and then the auditorium erupted in laughter as a fart sound echoed off the walls. Imagine being that girl! 💁🚶💨
Fast forward to now and that young fan has decided to air her grievances (much like that infamous fart sound). She claims to have been nothing more than a teenager at the time and accuses Ballinger of leaving her embarrassed and traumatized. Yeah, nobody wants their 15 minutes of fame to be fart-infused, do they? 🙅♀️💨🙈
As a result of this unsavory publicity, some of Ballinger’s podcast sponsors have decided that it’s time to air out their association with the YouTuber. Case in point, skincare brand, OneSkin, confirmed they have severed ties with her. It’s a classic case of ‘cut the cheese and get cut loose,’ isn’t it? 🧀🔪💔
But is this just the beginning? Are other sponsors gearing up to pass gas…sorry…pass on their association with Ballinger? It looks like this could just be the tip of the fartberg… or, iceberg. 🧊💨👀
Fart pranks have been a staple of comedy forever. From the classic whoopee cushion to countless gag gifts, they’re juvenile, they’re silly, and they’re pretty universally understood. But what happens when the butt of the joke doesn’t find it funny? And when the backlash is this severe, are fart pranks something we should reconsider as a society?
Perhaps it’s time we stop blowing hot air, literally and metaphorically, and ask ourselves – Are such pranks just harmless fun or do they cross a line? 🤔💭💨
What do you think? Should our comedic repertoire be free from such olfactory offenses, or do you believe it’s all just in good fun? And let’s be real, would you want to be remembered as the one who was part of a fart prank in front of a live audience?
