Here we are in 2019 and pyramid schemes (AKA multi-level marketing companies) still exist. A pyramid scheme is a company that requires its "consultants" to purchase kits from the company in order to sell to family and friends, often on social media. Of course, majority of these consultants end up not making any sort of profit whatsoever. You'll recognize these people as the ones who call themselves "boss babes" and encourage you to message them about this "great opportunity."
In this particular story, someone calls out an Acti Labs consultant for being a part of a pyramid scheme, to which the consultant throws a bit of a fit.
