The revolution will be monetized.

/I hope everyone involved in the production of this ends up broke and homeless.

Your life in 2021 is now more Black Mirror than ol' Charlie Booker could have ever come up with.  I'm pretty sure he's done with Black Mirror for a good long while (especially with the IP rights dispute ongoing).

Turning activism into entertainment and making it a competition seems like a really good way to get people to tune out to the actual issues being presented. It'll be like Drag Race but with hippies.

No one that cares about the issues will be watching. It's going to become a mockery of the causes

This is literally "performance activism".

While Philomena Cunk is an amusing name Barry Shiatpeas is one of the funniest names ever.

Like those tik tokkers walking around with stacks of cash "changing homeless people's lives" . No. You're using conspicuous charity to make yourself look virtuous. Cash for likes.
