To be right is not always popular…To be popular is not always right.”

Being “popular” is not always right in the social word. Some people think that being popular is doing bad things and making fun of people and other stuff. A type of popularity can be right. If people like you because your nice and do good things is a different type of popularity. If I’m so called “popular” than i would not like to be so in a bad manner but be popular in a good way.
