DEAR HARRIETTE: My friend has gained a lot of popularity through her YouTube channel, where she tells long and interesting stories while doing her makeup.
Lately, I guess she might be running out of ideas, because a lot of her stories seem grossly exaggerated — if not completely made up. I didn’t really mind until she started to bring my name into the stories.
She hasn’t said anything bad about me, but the fact that she’s been using my real name to tell the stories is definitely rubbing me the wrong way. I asked her stop, and she became offended and said she thought I would enjoy being mentioned on her popular channel.
I want to clear my name, but I don’t want to ruin her credibility. Should I just stand by and let her continue to lie, or should I expose the fake stories?
