I briefly followed Hannah B on Instagram but quickly got annoyed at the constant videos of her exercising or dancing in her crop top. I thought "Does she ever read a book?" I mean, it was constant and IMO inane and I unfollowed her. But here is my point. For a young woman who spends so much time live online, Hannah's single Instagram post apologizing seems proportionally inadequate. (The drunk live apology will not be presented as evidence because it made her look worse). This is a girl that practically lives online so to be suddenly offline since the post while her fandom melts down makes it look like she is hiding. Bad look. If I don't see her then I'm just assuming she's curled up in a fetal position crying woe is me.
Could be that she had a PR person tell her not to go live with Rachel, but I'm not sure that was wise. Just from the tone of Rachel's own live Instagrams, I believe she would have been pretty even keeled with Hannah and this dumpster fire would have been nicely addressed. (I'm a fan of Rachel--you can be a lawyer and be nice at the same time.)
The adulation this young woman has been receiving (BN Queen with 2 million + followers) is completely over the top. Sure, she's cute and she's quirky but her not showing up now when the heat gets hot is exactly her MO. She was always crying and cancelling cocktail parties because she was upset for one reason or another. I understand that production enjoys the shock of announcing "The cocktail party is cancelled we are going straight to the rose ceremony," but Hannah seemed to stomp out more than one would expect someone with a signed contract should/would do. And the outbursts supposedly continued during the DWTS filming as well.
Hannah has said that she wants to be a role model, well, here's her big shot. Although I am sure she didn't picture modeling humility and sincere sorrow, that's where she is. So I'm curious to see what she does next ... the clock is ticking.
