On Episode 7 of the Sunday Set Up, Dawn Michelle kicked off the episode with some housekeeping items and let the audience know that her show is a safe place for positivity and good vibes only.
She recapped things happening in entertainment news, like the funeral for slain rapper Takeoff. His homegoing was held at the State Farm Arena in Atlanta on Friday. Atlanta Mayor Andre Dickens spoke along with performances by Chloe Bailey, Yolanda Adams, Byron Cage, and Justin Bieber.
She then spoke about the Georgia run-off election between Democratic incumbent Sen. Raphael Warnock and Republican candidate Herschel Walker. She spoke about the importance of the run-off since most people tend to vote for the initial election and then taper off participation for run-offs. She urged her audience to not give up just yet, as more work must be done. Currently, the Democrats appear to keep control of the Senate as Vice President Kamala Harris carries the final vote.
She then introduced a topic she wanted to chat with the audience about after seeing an article about a social media influencer that was recently sentenced to 11 years in prison for money laundering. He flaunted what appeared to be an extravagant lifestyle of private jets, designer clothes, and luxury cars. All of these things were a result of his email compromise scams. Is appearing to have money and designer everything exacerbated because of social media? Knock-off designer items are all over the internet, but would you buy them just to keep up with the Joneses? Is it lame to buy fake designer items, even if the quality is amazing? She described working hard for the few designer items she does have and is conflicted about getting knock-off items, even if the quality is good. She asked her audience to consider shopping designer outlets if they need to have the designer’s name but don’t want to spend their rent money to get it.
