A cupcake with no bites taken and a plate with no crumbs. Clearly, we caught her right in the middle of breakfast.
As fun as it is to imagine that influencers are sneaking into each other's beds to eat cupcakes while reading their books, using their coffee cups, and striking their totally convincing "Look at how relaxed I am, fellow humans" poses, these shots are all fake as hell, and not even trying to be otherwise.

Zoia was charged with endangering life, endangering property, and being a common nuisance, the last of which could arguably be applied to every influencer.

And hey, who hasn't been pressured to do something stupid by their friends? Maybe the stress of her young career was getting to her. We all make mistakes, right?
