An Instagram blogger and an influencer who had 113,000 followers has made an emotional appeal to people on YouTube after her profile was deleted by the popular photo-sharing social media network.
In the video, you can see Jessy Taylor crying as she warns people to ‘think twice’ before reporting her because her Instagram account is how she makes her money, and a 9-5 job is not meant for her.
She said: “Hi guys, I’m in the middle of editing and my Instagram got deleted.”I’m trying to get it back, I’m calling everybody I can and I don’t know why it’s not working out for me. “I’m nothing without my following, I am nothing without my following.”
She continued: “And when people try to hate on me or report me I’m literally trying to be a fucking better person. “I want to say to everybody that’s reporting me – think twice because you’re ruining my life, because I make all of my money online, all of it and I don’t want to lose that. “I know people like to see me be down and be like them and the ninety per centers – the people who work 9-5 – that is not me, I am in LA to not be like that. “I’ve worked so fucking hard to get to where I’m at and for that to get taken from me is the worst feeling in the world.”
However, it is not yet clear as to why Jessy’s account was deleted, or why she was being reported, but she said she could never go back to ‘work a normal job’.
She said: “I was a fucking prostitute… I don’t do that anymore because I make all my money online. I don’t want to go back to that life.
“What some of you guys have to realise is I have no skills, I’m twenty-fucking-thousand dollars in debt from college so I can’t even go to college if I wanted to.
“I used to work at fucking McDonalds before I did YouTube, Instagram, before I had 100,000 followers, before I had everything in my life I was a fucking loser. “I’m not saying there’s anything wrong with working at McDonalds because I worked there but I don’t want to go back to that life.
“I have no job qualifications, I could never work a normal job.”
The video has been viewed more than 183,000 times since it was posted on Thursday. She has now set up a new Instagram account, which currently has 2,000 followers. But this is indeed a wake-up call for thousands of people worldwide who think they can sit home and make money off the internet.
