BAKERSFIELD, Calif. - As the drought continues to plague Kern County, many people are now turning to a new trend known as "drought shaming" in hopes of conserving water.
"Drought shaming" is a term being used on social media to call out businesses, homes or even your own neighbor, if you feel like they are wasting water.
"You're putting people on blast so it's probably the best thing to do, so, that they can start realizing they need to change," said Bakersfield resident Jose Poblano.
While you can find many people "drought shaming" across social media, some residents believe its a snitch system.
