Is Emma Chamberlain Charging $10K for an Instagram DM? Know the Truth

$10,000 for a DM?!

Published

on

Emma Chamberlain and her brand are under fire, and the influencer is facing massive backlash online.

It was recently revealed that Chamberlain was allegedly charging $10,000 for a personalized Instagram DM. This sent fans and followers of her into a frenzy mode, complaining that the whole ordeal was irrational.

They noted that Chamberlain was misusing her fans and that it was a scam to charge $10,000 for a simple personalized message on Instagram. After the influencer came to know about the backlash, she and her team shared a statement.

Here is everything we know about it.

Emma Chamberlain allegedly charged $10,000 for Instagram DM

On March 18, 2023, Layla Saliba posted a screenshot of Chamberlain’s site on Saturday with the opportunity to purchase a “Personal Thank You Note From Emma in Instagram DM!” for $10,000. The screenshot also revealed the store’s option for monthly payments, which offered a payment schedule of $902.58 for a year.

She questioned why Chamberlain was demanding 10K for an Instagram DM and noted that it was insane to do so. Soon, the tweet went viral and started spreading around like wildfire.

Since then, Chamberlain’s web store has been under development. Following the tweet, Chamberlain’s reps sent a statement to BuzzFeed News, calling the allegations that she was selling DMs for $10,000 “false and inaccurate.”

Chamberlain was unaware of the post, according to her reps, who claimed it may have been a test. Buzzfeed News also reached out to Saliba, who said she initially believed the $10,000 advertisement for the message on Chamberlain’s website was an error. 

She said, “Nothing against her [Chamberlain], but I’m a WOC working multiple jobs in grad school and I just got tired of someone who was very wealthy complain about how hard their life is,”

The response from Emma Chamberlain and her brand

Soon after the backlash, Chamberlain’s merchandise company, Cozak Inc, issued a statement on their website. They claimed that it was incorrect how the influencer was charging $10,000 for a personalized Instagram DM. 

Cozack was secretly testing a potential rewards program tied to her merch in 2018. In testing, they produced an extravagant reward level that was never activated and wasn’t meant to be. 

As they were only intended for internal testing and not for sale or reward, Chamberlain never implemented any of these reward ideas. They believed that material was activated and indexed by Google’s SEO indexing engine, then found by a person who started disseminating it online. 

Cozak asserted that this was never disclosed to the public, and it was never intended to be bought or sold. They defended Chamberlain and said she did not realize this was that the test program was never visible on the home page or product listing site. 

At last, they wrote, “With the internet’s tendency to create false narratives around sensationalized stories we wanted to provide you with the truth firsthand and from the source. The site is currently down for internal review.”

Chamberlain also gave a statement regarding the situation to E! News on March 21, 2023. She explained that when she got comments about selling DMs for $10,000, she believed it was a scam.

She never offered to sell a DM, so she thought the claims were fake. She said, “People were saying this was for sale on my merch site, so I checked the site to see if it had been hacked and couldn’t find anything out of the ordinary.”

Regardless, she reached out to Cozack to look deeper into the matter. She said, “I immediately got in touch with my merch company Cozack who further investigated and put the site under construction while looking into the issue.”

Emma Chamberlain’s net worth

Chamberlain initially started with YouTube in 2017, after which her fame skyrocketed. Soon, her quirky yet fashionable style caught the eyes of designers and brands who endorsed her.

She then became the “it girl” for Vogue and many other brands. At just 21, Chamberlain has a massive influence in the fashion and makeup industry.

Similarly, she has her own brands as well. As of 2023, her estimated net worth is approximately $12 million. Her net worth includes endorsements, fashion brands, her company, podcast, writings, YouTube, and public appearances.

Catherine Lowe and Husband Sean Lowe Celebrate Wedding Anniversary with Romantic Trip

Catherine Lowe and Sean Lowe marked their 10th wedding anniversary on January 26, 2024. Now, the married couple is finally celebrating their marriage anniversary with a special romantic vacation to Cabo San Lucas, Mexico.

On Thursday, May 2, 2024, Catherine – whose birth name is Catherine Giudici – took to her Instagram stories to post a picture alongside her husband. The photo showed the love birds on the plane on their way to their vacation destination. “10 years married,” she wrote.

Additionally, the reality TV star revealed some details about their luxurious vacation, saying they were staying at the five-star Esperanza resort in Mexico. On the same day, she shared more pictures from their romantic getaway.

She posted a series of pictures and videos showing off the gorgeous views, delicious food, and sweet date nights that she is soaking up with her husband of over a decade. “So far, so bueno. Our 10-year anniversary trip is off to a great start,” she captioned her post.

Some more pictures and videos of their vacation were shared by Catherine on Sunday, May 5. She captioned her Instagram post, writing, “Are we even old enough to have been married 10 years?! Doesn’t feel like it. Happy anniversary celebration, mi amor.”

After watching all the cute pictures of Sean and Catherine Lowe, one Instagram user commented, “All these birthday/anniversary celebration posts made me watch your season. Again! You both don’t look old enough to be married 10 years. Was this a surprise bday/anniv gift?”

Catherine decided to reply to the fan and answer the last question about whether the vacation was Catherine’s birthday gift — she turned 38 on April 29, 2024 — or if it was their wedding anniversary gift.

She revealed that it was their anniversary gift from her husband. She also stated that Sean had surprised her with this trip on their actual wedding anniversary and had managed everything, including asking his parents to watch their children.

She wrote, “He surprised me with this trip ON our anniversary – securing the date with his parents to watch the kids and all that.” The same Instagram user then replied, “Good man. Good man. So you knew about his surprise before your movie theatre surprise.”

The Instagram user was referring to Catherine’s marriage anniversary surprise for her husband Sean. On January 27, 2024, a day after their 10th wedding anniversary, Catherine surprised her partner by renting out the whole movie theatre for a private showing of Oppenheimer.

Like Sean managed the whole vacation in Mexico, Catherine did the same, including asking their family member to take care of their three children. Catherine later posted the whole experience, where she mentioned that Sean had been wanting to see Oppenheimer.

“I was so excited to surprise this old man,” she captioned the video shared on Instagram. To conclude, Catherine and Sean have gone to some limits to make their 10th wedding anniversary a moment to remember for a lifetime.

Speaking of Sean and Catherine’s relationship, they first met on The Bachelor season 17 and engaged during the season finale in March 2013. On January 26, 2014, they shared their wedding vows in a live TV wedding at the Four Seasons Resort Biltmore.

Since getting married, they have continued to be together, and the arrival of their children has only strengthened their relationship. Their three kids are sons Samuel Thomas Lowe (b. July 2, 2016) and Isaiah Hendrix Lowe (b. May 18, 2018) and daughter Mia Mejia Lowe (b. December 23, 2019).

Quen Blackwell, also known as Quenlin Blackwell, is taking some time off the internet to mourn the death of her beloved brother, Jairyn Blackwell.

On Thursday, May 2, 2024, the YouTube star took to her Instagram handle to share the tragic news of her brother’s death. She announced the unfortunate news via her story, keeping most of the details private.

She mentioned that her brother was killed, and she didn’t know how to tell this news to her fans and well-wishers or if she should have kept the entire news off the internet. But as she always expressed herself to her well-wishers, she decided to reveal her brother’s death.

As she continued her statement, she stated that she would be taking some time off the internet to mourn her brother’s death. Additionally, she clarified that anything that would be posted on her social media and YouTube channel had already been filmed before.

Quen wrote, “My brother got killed idk how to tell y’all this or if I should keep it off the internet, but I’ve always shared my life with you guys. So I just want to let y’all know. I’ll be off the internet for a second. Anything that’s posted is pre-filmed. Thank you for the condolences.”

As of this writing, it has been reported her brother, Jairyn, was shot. As per Cincinnati Enquirer, who got the details from Springfield Township police, Jairyn was shot on Thursday afternoon in the 2000 block of Springdale Road.

At approximately 1:35 p.m., police officials were informed of a person shot inside their vehicle. When officials arrived at the location, they found Jairyn, a 30-year-old Lincoln Heights native, suffering from multiple gunshot wounds.

Jairyn was immediately taken to the University of Cincinnati Medical Center, where he was ultimately pronounced dead. It has been reported that the Springfield Township Police Department Criminal Investigations Section is currently investigating the incident.

As of this writing, no information regarding a suspect has been released. For now, this incident has been labeled a homicide, and the authorities are reportedly working to find the culprit.

Anyone with any information has been asked to call the Springfield Township Police Department at 513-729-1300 or Crime Stoppers at 513-352-3040.

Returning to Quen, her well-wishers have expressed their condolences in her comment section and Reddit threads. For instance, one wrote, “Rest in peace!! Sending so much love and prayers to her and the rest of her family!!” Another wrote, “Hope he gets justice.”

Likewise, in a Reddit thread, one Redditor commented, “Wtf. I hope her and her family are able to heal from this and get justice. I didn’t even know she had any siblings. Her mental health wasn’t all too great, so I’m really wishing her the best through all this.”

As the Reddit user pointed out, Quen hadn’t talked about her now-late brother, Jairyn Blackwell. Besides, not many even knew she had a brother. So, it’s safe to say that the YouTuber wanted to maintain privacy around her family life.

As Quen and her family deal with the unfortunate passing of their family member, we must also respect their privacy and let them have a moment of peace. Glamour Buff family wishes only the best for the Blackwell family.
