Jessy Taylor, a self-proclaimed Instagram blogger, really didn’t like the idea that she may have to get a real 9 to 5 job. And, since the internet is a ruthless place, the video she made where actual tears were shed immediately went viral.
Jessy was doing whatever it is Instagram bloggers pretend they do when her account — which had more than 113,000 followers — was abruptly deleted.
That’s when the emotional plea to get her account came into play.
“Hi guys, I’m in the middle of editing and my Instagram got deleted,” she cried. “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. And when people try to hate on me or report me I’m literally trying to be a f*cking 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 percenters – the people who work 9-5 – that is not me, I am in LA to not be like that. I’ve worked so f*cking hard to get to where I’m at and for that to get taken from me is the worst feeling in the world.”
Now, it is sad that we’ve come to a point in society where people define themselves by how big of a following they have on social media. At the same time, it is equally as sad that people view the idea of having to work a real job as something horrific. But alas, here we are, and that’s just the times we are living in.
