With the Kardashians in the headlines all the time, you’d think it’s just females who top the influencer charts. Though more women dominate the influencer world, there are plenty of international male social media stars.
Some male influencers make news for their offensive commentary or posts. Yet many make a comeback, as in the cases of YouTube stars PewDiePie, aka Felix Kjellberg, and Logan Paul, both of whom are controversial. Others, as you can see from their videos or posts, just want to have fun and poke fun on the global stage.
