"Bad Influence(r)" is the second episode of The Proud Family: Louder and Prouder. It premiered on February 23, 2022, alongside the series' first episode, on Disney+.


Penny's friends are obsessed with Makeup Boy, a makeup influencer whom Penny clashes with over his brazen comments about female beauty.


Penny's surprised that everyone's obsessed with the latest social media influencer Makeup Boy, but she sees through his salesman-like tactics. To prove a point, Penny creates a video called Growing Up Proud. The video goes viral and The Gross Sisters, who now want legitimate compensation to start their rap careers, "ask" Penny to play their track on her next video. Penny keeps up her series and begins to rack up followers to the point that she has power to control people's views. She cancels Makeup Boy, ruining his career, and soon uses this ability to cancel LaCienega, the teachers and send Suga Mama away. Maya confronts Penny on her behavior and uses KG's drone to catch Oscar getting paid off by Wizard Kelly, sending it out to the internet and causing Penny to lose all of her followers. Penny encounters Makeup Boy, who reveals his real name to be Sebastian, who thanks her for bringing him back to his roots. Upon returning home, Penny apologizes for her actions as a newly swollen Suga Mama punishes Oscar.
