The Inventor Of "On Fleek" Is Trying To Start A Cosmetics Line
Just as many inventors before her, Monroee hasn't been adequately compensated for her lightning-strike genius. A common, specious argument is that Monroee has been unfairly treated because she hasn't been awarded Vans like the Damn Daniel teens or sold t-shirts like the "cash me outside" teen. I'm not really sure how to respond to that other than that the Damn Daniel teens referenced a specific brand and the "cash me outside" teen set up a web shop, which seems more indicative of a calculating relationship to capitalism than discrimination. There's a whole laundry list of reasons why that relationship is itself a creation of privilege, but this is not a college class so I'll leave that to the real professionals.

All this to say, Peaches Monroee is now starting a crowdfunded cosmetics line. Monroee, real name Kayla, writes that she's following a dream.

"I want to start a cosmetic line and hair line; But I don't have any money to do so," she writes. "Maybe this can help me with my wishes and dreams. I am currently enrolled in college. I'm taking up Nursing...but I also want to make sure I getting the recognition and money I deserve. Any amount can help, Thank you!"

So far she only has just under $5,000 in a day of a $100,000 goal. We would call the line "On Fleek," but she's the meme professional. Check out the campaign and donate here.
