Mum Deletes Influencer Daughter’s Social Media Accounts With 1.7 Million Followers
Nina Rios is a Brazilian teenager that had amassed more than 1.7 million followers on social media in her short time on this earth.
However, the teen's mum has shut her accounts down to teach her a lesson in values.
Fernanda Rocha Kanner believes Instagram and TikTok are unhealthy apps and shouldn't be used so heavily by a teenage girl.
She added that she didn't want Nina, who is known online as Valentina, to think who she was on social media is who she is in real life.
"I don't think it's healthy even for an adult and much less for a teenager to base her self-discovery on online feedback," Fernanda told Fantastico.
"It's hard enough for you to find out who you are at 14 years old. When there are two million you've never seen in your life thinking they know you, it's even more dangerous. It's easier to lose yourself."
The straw that broke Nina's back was when her mum logged onto social media and saw '30 identical selfies and little dances that anyone can do'.
Fernanda admitted that she was worried her daughter would 'grow up believing she's this character'.
"I don't want her advertising flammable polyester clothing made in China. I don't want my brilliant daughter doing her daily dances like a trained baboon. It's a sad generation for which this counts as fame," she added.
As a result, the mum took down the accounts.
Valentina was understandably furious at the decision initially and said she got 'quite angry' with her mum.
Interestingly, she explained that she's content being off social media for now and hasn't revealed whether she will try to rebuild her massive following.
"I'll choose. At the moment, I don't want to. It's going to be something that's only going to get in my way and it will only make it worse," she said.
