Rachel Hollis, a former mommy blogger, turned influencer, has transformed into a popular motivational speaker, and best-selling author. She is being accused of plagiarizing some of her Instagram posts.
Her first book, Girl, Wash Your Face, became a No. 1 New York Times best-seller after it published in February 2018 — and has drawn its share of criticism. Her second, Girl, Stop Apologizing, will be released on March 12.
Recently, comments from users on Instagram made disturbing allegations that the quotes that Hollis posts on her Instagram page — which she either attributes to herself or leaves vague — are plagiarized.
BuzzFeed News looked into Instagram posts from Hollis and tried to track the origins of the quotes she shared.
