B. Simone is headed to Mexico for vacation but is receiving backlash from critics after asking her followers to pay $10 to be added to her “Close Friends” list.
Simone said that being a part of her close friends will ensure her followers will get premium access from her vacation in Mexico.

If you don’t want to be of my close friends then I’m not talking to you. see you 3k people in Mexico.”
