Instagrammer Says She Called Police After Losing Her Account

The blogger who sobbed after her Instagram account was deleted has revealed that she initially called the police after her page disappeared because it 'felt like a homicide'.

Jessy Taylor had 113,000 followers on her Instagram account when it was taken, prompting her to post a video of herself crying and insisting that a 'normal 9-5 job' wasn't for her.

Now, in an interview with Insider, she's revealed that she called the police after her account was taken down but that, unsurprisingly, they weren't particularly bothered about the incident. Shocker, eh?

She told the news outlet: "I felt like it was a homicide. Like somebody murdered and then went online to say, 'I murdered this girl'."

I mean this with the greatest of respect, but it is not like that at all, is it?

"I called the police actually," she explained. "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'."

She also said that she made a whopping $500,000 (£381,730) from the account but complained that the cash doesn't really go very far.

Adding: "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."

In her tear-filled video from Wednesday following her account being pulled, she said: "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 fucking hard to get to where I'm at and for that to get taken from me is the worst feeling in the world."

Yesterday, she uploaded a swear-fest of a video in which she hit back at 'haters' who slated her for her lifestyle choices and claimed that she had rich parents.


"Just because my parents are rich, doesn't make me rich. This whole house that you fucking see me recording in is my place. I paid $7,500 just to move in here.

"This Gucci bag, I literally worked so fucking hard for it. This is all my money. This isn't mummy and daddy's money. At the end of the day I'm 21 years old. I am an adult, bro. I have sex. I do whatever the fuck I want at this point, you know. I'm a grown ass woman. Stop treating me like some little girl."
