A week ago, an Instagram influencer named Jessy Taylor uploaded a video to YouTube where she tearfully explained how her profile with over 100,000 followers had been deleted. She begged people to stop reporting her account as spam, saying she didn't have the skills for a normal job and was trying to be "a f---ing better person." The video, "STOP REPORTING MY INSTAGRAM ACCOUNT," has about 800 likes to 11,000 dislikes, and comments below say things like "This is exactly what an entitled brat looks like" and "Get a job, you entitled tramp." Taylor, 21, who mostly posted selfies and photos of her in bikinis on her old account, said that this hatred is the main reason her Instagram account was deleted. "It wasn't reported from posting nasty photos," she told INSIDER. "It was reported from having haters." Taylor said that though she made $500,000 from her account over three years, "that money does not last." "You go to the Gucci store a few times, you pay a couple of months of rent ... I'm not rich like I used to be," she said. Taylor has previously faced controversy, which she didn't want to talk about on the record. However, she did say that she apologizes for her trouble with law enforcement and the streams of her online making racist comments. "That wasn't from the bottom of my heart," she said. "At the time, I didn't have that many followers, so I thought if I say this, maybe I can get more followers." Taylor said she was mimicking the behavior of other controversial influencers who can say whatever they want and still maintain their popularity. Except in this case, it didn't pay off. "It feels like everyone is after me for no reason," she told INSIDER. "What is their legit reason for not liking me? They've never met me in person. How can you hate me from a computer? How can you write a paragraph about someone and hate them so much after just seeing a video of them?" Taylor said that working as a stripper for 3 1/2 years gave her a thick skin but that she still can't understand why people dislike her as much as they do. "I'm not a hateful person. I'm a Sagittarius," she said. "I don't get jealous. I can't relate to hateful and jealous people because I've never been a hateful jealous person." But she also said people might have a problem with the way she "keeps it too real." "My friends say I can't just say exactly what I think of people," she said. "Well, why the f--- not?" Taylor told INSIDER that her Instagram account being deleted felt like "a murder" and that the person who was instrumental in taking it down posted screenshots and bragged about it. "I felt like it was a homicide," she said. "Like somebody murdered me and then went online to say, 'I murdered this girl.' "I called the police actually and told them about this, and they said you can't compare a murder to this, and I was like, no, that's exactly what it felt like." One of Taylor's fans gave her a new account, which has about 8,000 followers. But she said Instagram had blocked her from posting for a month, and she's wary of using the platform now anyway. She said she'd rather focus on her YouTube channel, which has about 5,000 subscribers. "Basically, when you do YouTube, you can go anywhere," she said. "I want to save some money and possibly move to the UK." She said she liked the UK because she believes people there are less judgmental and that's where her bigger fanbase is. Also, she said, "guys are hotter there." "I see why Lindsay Lohan moved to another country," she added. "Because Americans are haters." Taylor acknowledged that she had made mistakes and that having a big following gave her an ego boost that could be problematic. "I turned into a mean person when I had my account," she said. "If people would try it with me, I'd use it to say, 'You need to understand who the f--- you're talking to.'" Now she says she wants to focus more on her career than on what people are saying about her. "I can't control what other people think of me," she said. "All I can do is move forward and put out new content and be true to myself." Instagram didn't immediately respond to INSIDER's request for comment on why Taylor's account was deleted.
