YouTuber Alexa Rivera sparks backlash with scavenger hunt video

YouTuber Alexa Rivera is facing heavy backlash after uploading a video where she claims she went “missing” for 24 hours…. and made her friends participate in a scavenger hunt to find her and possibly win $1,000. Rivera has over 5 million YouTube subscribers and commenters are upset over her recent misleading video title and premise. The video was titled, “I WENT MISSING FOR 24 HOURS!!” but Rivera has since updated it to add that it was all part of a scavenger hunt. Throughout the video, Rivera featured mock “missing persons” posters that had Rivera’s photo on them. The video has racked up tons of comments from people who found the scavenger hunt and the original video title offensive
