Grammys swag bag suitcases torn up by viewers for giving ‘imaginary celebs free stuff’ as packer revealed what’s inside
A TIKTOKER has revealed the luxe swag bags to be given out to celebrities at the Grammys and viewers aren’t happy.
The ceremony’s performers are said to receive a suitcase full of snacks, pricey skincare and even Bluetooth speakers, but critics wonder if they’ll even use the free stuff.
Rachael, the woman who owns a Grammys-hired gift bag company, posted a video showing off the official bags.
“This year we’re packing these giant suitcases for all the presenters and cast members,” she said, while showing off dozens of large bags to be given out on Sunday.
The businesswoman’s team has assembled a massive stockroom of products to share with the celebs, including a nearly $300 JBL speaker.
“These bags pack a punch,” Rachael said.
The video of these wild gifts went viral, amassing over 600,000 views just a day after its release.
And while 79,000 people liked the clip, many users took advantage of the comments to slam the fact that already successful people get handouts.
“Why do rich people get free stuff they can afford that I can’t,” said one angry user.
Another online reviewer commented, “Crazy as if awards ceremonies weren’t INTRODUCED already, we have to give them gift bags.”
“This would be so great for foster children,” said a third person.
However, Rachael refused to back down and explained to a user why the celebs were presented with the gifts.
One angry commenter said: “It’s crazy how most of these people have money and can buy this stuff but they get it for free all the time.”
And Rachael responded with, “The GRAMMYs will feature the biggest acts in the world, all of whom will receive these gift bags as a recognition and appreciation of their attendance.”
Commenting on Rachael’s response, a frustrated user said the brands should donate to women’s shelters or food supplies instead of throwing items at people who already have “millions”.
“You should be glad to know that many of these brands are already donating to women’s shelters and food supplies,” Rachael said.
She also responded to a comment about famous people who might throw away the unwanted items with “hopefully they’ll give away what they don’t like”.
Rachael seemed unimpressed and later posted a follow-up video highlighting some of the snack brands that are sending celebs free treats.
She also confirmed in the comments that she’ll be doing a giveaway soon, but didn’t give any details on when or how she’ll be tackling that.
According to its website, Gift Bags by Rachael “gives world-class exposure to the biggest brands” by putting them in the hands of influential celebrities.
