8 Subjects of Internet Memes Who Lived Out Your Biggest Dreams
Hate to break it to you, but while you and your friends were in a fit of laughter over the latest meme blowing up the Internet, the person in the meme was laughing too… straight to the bank!
Over the past several years, many regular, everyday people have encountered overnight superstardom and have become viral Internet sensations. While some have failed to find the humor in their newfound fame — we still can’t believe Demi Lovato didn’t find Poot Lovato hilarious AF — others fully embraced it, welcoming the sudden onslaught of attention and using it to launch them toward a new, more luxurious life!
Yes, you read that correctly. While you were making fun of these people and adding fuel to the wildfire that is the World Wide Web, they were gearing up to sell personalized merchandise, sign television deals and buy fancy, new homes! Who would’ve thought that their complete and utter humiliation would amount to this? And also, where do we sign up?!
Danielle Bregoli (a.k.a. 'Cash Me Outside' Girl)
Perhaps the most recent subject of viral Internet fame is 14-year-old Danielle Bregoli. The teenager, who was featured on an episode of Dr. Phil several months ago after trying to frame her mother for a crime, has since been warding off paparazzi and denying claims that she's slept with rapper Kodak Black (yes, things have gotten that out of hand).
Although Danielle is experiencing some of the more difficult aspects of celebrity, we doubt she regrets any of it, especially because she just signed a deal with a major production company for her own reality show!
In addition to the upcoming series, starring the young girl and her mom, Danielle makes several thousands of dollars by endorsing products such as Fit Tea to her 8.4 million Instagram followers. She'll also be raking in an additional $40k in May for an appearance at Miami's Rolling Loud Music Festival, so how bow dah?!
