An internet model shared a video on Youtube, emotionally declaiming that her life was ruined after her Instagram account was deleted.
Jessy Taylor, an Instagram influencer, posted the video to her Youtube channel last week.
The video shows her crying over her account being reported so many times, Instagram deleted her page entirely. At the time of the deletion, she had over 110,000 followers.
Taylor sobs through the video saying things like,
“I am nothing without my following!”
“The people who work 9-5 – that is not me, I am in LA to not be like that.”
Seems like a pretty cut and dry case of “those darn millennials.”
Let’s go back to our daily lives.
Imagine being dependant on social media to the point of not being able to work a job. Like how fucking sad *cough-jessy taylor-cough*

Instagram 'star' Jessy Taylor is whining about getting a 9-5 job because her 113,000 followers got deleted? Prime example of a millennial & snowflake.

Hold up. Of course, it’s not that simple.
Taylor also explains that before she made it as an influencer, she was forced to do sex work to pay the bills. She says she worked as a prostitute and a stripper, though she also says she worked at McDonald’s before. So, maybe she does have some other skills?
However, that quote above about the 9-5 job? There’s a little more to it.
“I know people like to see me be down and be like them and the 90-percenters – the people who work 9-5 – that is not me, I am in LA to not be like that.”
I want to feel bad for her, but it’s really difficult when she’s so disparaging to the people who make her job possible.

So you made half a million dollars but couldn't pay off that 20K from school or save enough to last a while?

Adding another tally against her, people have been sharing a video of Taylor, claiming she’s racist.
Which, is kind of hard to argue with, considering she says it right in the video.
In the video in question, Taylor is being compared to a video streamer’s girlfriend, with the guy in the video saying the girlfriend is “better looking than” Taylor.
Her response is,
“What? She’s f***ing black!”
She also at one point says “I am a racist.”
So, you know, there’s that.
you made fun of Hyphonix's girlfriend for having dark skin. Seems pretty racist…https://t.co/jXtyeaKhcn

If i said anything racist in the past it was for clout and not real

There are honestly so many angles to this story. On one hand, people losing their jobs, jobs they worked for after pulling themselves out of bad situations, is not a good thing.
On the other hand, it’s really difficult to feel sorry for Jessy Taylor.
Sounds like books like these, on how to be an Instagram Influencer, don’t include chapters on being a useful or compassionate member of society.
