How Far is “Too Far?”

Nowadays, social media rules the world, and this decade has proven to be more “untraditional” and “mold-breaking” than ever before. But in this ever-changing society, we continue to ask an important question: How far is too far? Dr. Phil discusses that when he meets three different people whose quest for fame and fortune not only went viral -- but also made national news. Some were criticized -- and in some cases, canceled -- by the public for “crossing the line.” First, a 22-year-old went viral in August after quitting his day job and approaching a popular social media influencer and asking him for a job. Does he have what it takes for a career in social media? Next, Dr. Phil meets a YouTuber who was canceled for his controversial videos. What does he have to say? And lastly, meet a woman who turned to social media to make money in what some call an “unconventional” way – but she says she’s doing better than ever before. Tune in to hear these stories!

Missing and Murdered in Montana

You have most likely heard of Gabby Petito, Natalee Holloway and Lacy Peterson. But have you heard of Henny Scott, Ashley Loring, or Jermain Charlo? Those are the names of just a few of the Indigenous women who have disappeared. Some are discovered dead days later, some are never found. But the mystery of what happened to them often remains unsolved. Families say they don’t get answers from law enforcement and are left grief-stricken with no closure. Their stories are not unique — not in Native American communities where there is an epidemic of missing women. According to their families, no one cares about these girls, and that’s why you never hear about them. Nate and Paula’s 14-year-old daughter, Henny Scott, disappeared almost three years ago while she was hanging out with friends and was found dead two weeks later. Ashley Loring was only 20 years old when she disappeared four years ago. She was last seen in Browning, a Montana town on the Blackfeet Indian reservation. Her mother, Loxie, says there are still no answers. Former criminal prosecutor Loni Coombs, tribal filmmaker Rain, and Representative Greg Stanton of Arizona tackle this nationwide epidemic with Dr. Phil. This is a call to action because Indigenous women say they have a target on their back.

If you want to help Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women, write to your congressperson and senators and let them know that you care about this issue and it matters. You can also write to newspapers and local TV stations.
