Recently announced, a reality show with Usher, Priyanka Chopra and Julianne Hough hosts is being brutally trolling on social media.
The show, called “The Activist”, features six activists and three prominent public figures. They join forces to make a difference for one of three crucial world causes: education, health, or the environment. The show was criticized by netizens for using activism to raise awareness for important world causes. The show was also criticised for its extravagant spending on sets and the generous award of prize money. They instead point out that this amount of money cannot be used in real money for such causes.
Jamela Jamil, actor, tweeted: “Couldn’t they just pay the money it’s going to cost to pay this UNBELIEVABLY costly talent and make that show, directly to activist causes?” Instead of turning activism into a game, and then giving away a fraction in a prize …?’ people are dying’,
Cameron Kasky, an American activist who advocates against gun violence, tweeted: “Dumb sh*t such as this reminds us of how meaningless the term ‘activist’ is.

Another user said, “Capitalism capitalizing on activism and poc struggles through the use of privileged people is such a American thing to do, and quite frankly it’s disgusting.”
