An Instagram influencer had a meltdown on YouTube as she begged people to stop reporting her account after it got deleted.
Social media personality Jessy Taylor had racked up 113,000 followers on the site before it suddenly got pulled out from under her feet.
She posted a video in tears, explaining how she had been editing when her account got deleted, and although she’d contacted everyone she could think of to try and get it back, things weren’t working out.
Although the beauty of Instagram is that you can use it pretty much anywhere where there’s Internet access, Jessy was especially devastated at the loss of her account as she explained she was in LA because she wanted to be on Instagram.
Wiping away her tears, she added how she’s ‘nothing’ without her following.
Take a look at the video here:
The influencer’s account was removed after people kept reporting her. It’s not clear exactly why they were doing so, but she explained she’d ‘tried to be f**cking a better person’, and that those reporting her should ‘think twice because you’re ruining [her] life’.
Jessy went on to say how she was aware people tried to get her down and wanted to see her with a 9-5 job, but she pointed out that lifestyle wasn’t for her.
The emotional girl continued:
I’ve worked so hard to get to where I’m at and for that to get taken from me is the worst f**cking feeling in the world.
It literally sucks having people want to come after you for no f**cking reason.
Jessy explained how she used to work as a prostitute, but she was able to stop when she started to earn money online. She encouraged people to try and put themselves in her shoes, rather than discourage her attempts to become successful.
The influencer has since started a new Instagram account, which has around 375 followers.
Hopefully she’ll manage to gain back her following, or find a way to have her old account restored and ensure her work hasn’t gone to waste.
