Learn the details on the recent scandal related to the producer Steven Wetherbee and the well-known Internet celebrity Lia Marie Johnson.
Livestreams are a much easier way for celebrities to connect with their fans while celebrating special events and festivities. But it comes with its own disadvantages too. A live video in front of thousands of your followers may capture something that you may not ever want to reveal.
It's a much greater risk for famous personalities. When something wrong happens during a live video, they cannot recuperate the actions they take as there is no editing mechanism in live streams. And ultimately, their reputation is at stake.
The same thing happened to the producer Steven Wetherbee and the well-known Internet celebrity Lia Marie Johnson. An event that unfolded in January 2020 has both of them under harsh online scrutiny, and here's how that happened.
On January 2, 2020, YouTuber Lia Marie Johnson went Livestream on Instagram. In the live video, she was seen to be under the influence and making out with a much older guy. Fans were stunned to watch as the event unfolded live. Many believe Lia might be kissing her producer Steven Wetherbee, who is significant decades older than her.

After a while, Lia Marie Johnson got back to social media and told her fans not to get involved in her affairs. Soon after the incident, her producer Steven Wetherbee completely excluded himself from the Internet. He took down all of his business websites and also deactivated his Instagram account.
