It seems weird to me that anyone in their right mind would watch another human, who’s usually talentless, unfunny, vacuous and annoying, spout about whatever comes to their minds.
My girlfriend sits and watches those shopping haul/bag reveal videos that girls do on YouTube and honestly I wonder why I’m even with her sometimes.
(If you’re reading this Grace, I love you).
Nevertheless, social media is powerful – I wouldn’t be in a job without it – and seemingly neither would this next girl.
Insta blogger extraordinaire Jessy Taylor has recorded herself having a meltdown of epic proportions after her social media profile was deleted.
Appearing in the video – which she posted on her YouTube channel – she was in floods of tears, sobbing that she’s “nothing without [her] followers”.
Jessy wrote in the description box of the video: “This is my beg for help if you know anyone who can get my account back please let me know this happend while i was editing my vlog from SF. [sic]”
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.”
The blogger, who says she moved to LA to become famous on Instagram, states that her old account, which had racked up an impressive 113,000 followers, was taken down due to people reporting her.
“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 percenters – the people who work nine-to-five – that is not me. I am in LA to not be like that.
“I’ve worked so f*****g hard to get to where I’m at and for that to get taken from me is the worst feeling in the world.”
It’s not clear 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’, after previously working as a prostitute and in McDonald’s.
“I was a f***ing prostitute. I don’t do that anymore because I make all my money online,” she said.
“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-f*****g-thousand dollars in debt from college so I can’t even go to college if I wanted to.
“I used to work at f*****g McDonald’s before I did YouTube, Instagram – before I had 100,000 followers. Before I had everything in my life I was a f*****g loser.
“I’m not saying there’s anything wrong with working at McDonald’s 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.
I actually feel a bit sorry for this girl; it clearly means a lot to her and it looks like she hasn’t had the best opportunities available to her.
Or maybe this video is all just a part of an elaborate rouse to get suckers like me to watch her videos.
Wouldn’t surprise me – the other day I saw some ‘vlogger’ supposedly kissing his own sister in a video. And no, before you ask, I didn’t search for it, it was all over the internet.
People will do anything these days for a bit of attention.
I highly doubt it was real, though, but if it was it’s disgusting. Although I’d still rather watch it than those bag reveal videos.
