People don't seem to care about what those girls have to say, it takes a "stunt" to get people's attention.
That's true in most situations. If a black person accuses someone of racism, many people just say "it's the race card." But then a white person goes on a tv show and "becomes" black, shows racism and everyone is automatically "oh my god that's so horrible". People listen to these "stunts" more than those who have been through the actual reality.
