I’m an influencer at 24, everyone thinks my job’s easy but it’s not, I don’t finish my work day until 5.19pm

But in a now-deleted video that was originally posted on Instagram, she insisted that being an influencer "isn’t easy" and that it's not a job that many can do.
She also complained that she doesn't finish her work day until 5.19 pm.
“A very small handful of people who can actually do this job… You do not want to have this job," she said, according to Daily Mail.
“I literally just finished work and it's 5:19[pm].
“Try being an influencer for a day. Try it. Because the people who say it's easy are so far out of their minds. Try it for a day.
She continued: “Five to six hours filming video content that ranges from three to four videos and then I spend a few hours editing that video content'.

“Then I have to work on my other social media profiles, whatever it may be. It's f**king marketing. Then I'm in meetings from 12 pm to 5 pm.
“[Being an influencer] is not for everybody. In fact, it's for a very small handful of people who can actually do this job… You do not want to have this job, just saying.”Most read in LifestylePASTY PROBLEM I wear 28i bras and tried lifting pasties - there was a problem after minutesGOT THE HUMP I did a SKIMS haul and Kim, we need to talk - the camel toe is realA UNIFORMED HOOTER I’m a Hooters girl - my bra was checked before I started each shiftDUCHY DUTY Prince William is now his dad's landlord and will get £700K a year from The King
Mikayla's video has since received backlash from social media users who have slammed her 'tone-deaf' remarks.
'I'd love to try being an influencer for a day, Mikayla,' wrote one. 'Because while you're sitting in your $1 million house, lying to people about makeup, I work two jobs from 5am to 9pm just so I can afford rent and groceries.
While you make what I make in a year in a week."
Meanwhile, model Wisdom Kaye commented: "Any influencer who tells you their job is hard is either lying or just straight-up lazy"
He went on to insist that influencing was "easy as s**t", adding: "You get to wake up whenever you want, you get to work for as long as you want, you can clock in and clock out as you please, you have no boss, no co-workers, you have unlimited vacation days.
"You decide how long your shift is, you get to decide everything about your job - you are literally your own boss.

The beauty guru has since addressed the backlash in a video where she explains the clip was shared over a year ago when she was new to the job and 'having a s**t day'.
She added that she regrets her comments, before deleting it and issuing an apology.4The influencer has since told how she regrets the comments she madeCredit: Instagram/@mikaylanogueira Topics
