Anatomy of a Train Wreck

*Warning* Along with a fountain of tears, this video contains copious foul language.

Let’s break this cryfest down, shall we?

  • 0:25 “I am nothing without my following“. Math tip: Nothing plus one hundred thousand followers on Social Media equals… nothing.
  • 0:43 “You are ruining my life because I make all of my money online” Plain English translation: “I found a nice little earner flashing my bits on Social Media for cash and prizes. But now the party is over, I had no plan and no backup. And it’s your fault
  • 0:55 “The 90%ers, the people that work 9 to 5, that is not me. I am in LA to not be like that” = I’m better than you.
  • 1:00 “I have worked soooo hard…” …shaking my bits on social media for cash and prizes.
  • 1:15 “People come after me for no reason and it hurts“. They all had a reason, you just don’t know what that reason is. Perhaps the Internet is not the place for you.
  • 1:20 “This is my life” = I have no life.
  • 2:15 “Nobody loves me. I only have three friends in the world who have not backstabbed me…yet.
  • 2:35 “I have no skills, and $20,000 in debt from college…” So what did you learn at college? Why was it not useful?
  • 3:05: “I used to work at McDonald’s before I did YouTube, Instagram, before I had 100,000 followers, before I had everything in my life, I was a loser…” So people who work at McDonald’s are losers, and people who place their value in the number of followers on Social Media have everything. Riiiight…
  • 3:09 “I have no job qualifications. I could never work a normal job. I am worthless. I bring nothing to the table. I am not work material. I will never be work material. So stop reporting me…” BOOM. There it is.

 


Dear Jessy,

I have no beef with you. I don’t even have an Instagram account. I am not laughing at you, but I am not about to give you sympathy either.

By your own admission, you have no value outside of flashing your bits on Social Media for fun and profit, and good luck to you if you can make a living doing that. But deep down, you must know that the youth and beauty that brings in clicks, eyeballs, and dollars only lasts for so long. The party will not last forever. It never does. And when it does, you will have about fifty years to think about it. So start making yourself useful.

The fact that you have no skills outside of Instagram is telling. But you don’t have a hater problem, and you don’t have an Instagram problem. You have a *you* problem.


Epilogue: she finally got her channel back

What about all the other folks who got banned?
