Nobody sees them, nobody comments on them, nobody shares them, nobody likes them. Nobody likes him. Fans stop following on social media and brands start leaving him. This fall from grace will drive Pepper to start doing anything to try and get back the attention of his audience… and to avoid being pushed into the anonymity of life outside the web.
