Model Hits Out At TikTok For 'Discriminating' Against Her Body Claiming Her Content Keeps Getting Deleted

Model Hits Out At TikTok For 'Discriminating' Against Her Body Claiming Her Content Keeps Getting Deleted

A model has hit out at TikTok for 'discriminating against her body', claiming the platform removed her content because she is 'too sexy'.

Neyleen Ashely, 32, has grown a huge fanbase on social media, having amassed 2 million followers on Instagram - where she shares saucy and comedic photos and videos under the handle @neyleenashley.

She also has a large following on TikTok, but claims the sharing platform has made a point of removing her videos, despite the fact there is other similar content from other models elsewhere.

Ashley, from Miami, Florida, said she finds it hurtful as TikTok has provided her with something of a psychological lifeline over the past few months.

"It makes me sad when they remove my videos," she told The Daily Mail.

"During coronavirus I fell in love with TikTok.

"My first ever ventures in social media were doing funny videos on Vine [a now-defunct video platform].

"So when Vine got shut down, I quickly transferred my talents to Instagram.

"Then later on TikTok became a release for me and my comedic personality - until I noticed they kept discriminating against me for my body."

Ashley, who earns up to $1,000 (£780) per social media post, argues that other TikTok users are able to share content that's not too dissimilar to hers, but believes it is her curvy figure that may have triggered the platform's censorship algorithm.

"If I post the same kinds of videos, wearing a bikini or shorts - not even showing too much cleavage in comparison to the other girls - they immediately delete it and remove followers.

"Then they say I am going against community guidelines."

Ashley has career aspirations outside of social media, having enrolled in nursing school.

As she had to take a break from this due to the pandemic, right now she describes herself as a 'full time Instagram model and Twitch streamer'.

She said: "My Twitch channel is such a special place for me.

"I get a lot of hate and plastic comments that really hurt me, but it comes with the territory."

Ashley said people's negative reactions are 'often hurtful', adding that they've caused her to 'really into account' what she eats, so as to 'stay as thin as possible'.

"It really takes a toll on me," she said.

Thankfully, Ashley is still able to find some joy from what she does, and has a strong support network from her family and friends - along with thousands of devoted followers.

She added: "I love them, and they love me - thankfully!"
