You’re taught from a young age, 991 is for emergencies only…
Unfortunately, the term ’emergency’ can be open to some pretty wild interpretations. And nothing proves that better than the news that “social media starlet” Jessy Taylor claimed that having her Instagram account deleted felt ‘like a homicide’.
So, in case you need it spelling out, it’s fair to say Jessy’s priorities are somewhat skewed.
Jessy’s job as a blogger relied very much on her being able to use her Instagram account as a tool to attract followers, and with 113,000 followers she was a pretty popular girl! Unfortunately for the twenty-one-year-old, the dream was too good to last and when Instagram deleted her account she posted a lengthy, tear-stained rampage against the social media platform.

In the video Jessy explains that she couldn’t work a normal 9-5 job like everybody else. That would be too torturous.
She protests she means no offense to those working at McDonalds (she used to work in McDonald’s! Heroine that she is…) but that ‘that life’ just isn’t for her. Y’know, because some people really do love working in McDonalds. They were born for that McLife.
Jessy has revealed in a recent interview with Insider that when her Instagram account was deleted she rang the police. She said:
“I felt like it was a homicide. Like somebody murdered and then went online to say, ‘I murdered this girl’.”
Okay, so maybe we could forgive her having the most unreasonable reaction to any news ever but then she went on to say…
“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’.”
And as if that wasn’t enough (which it absolutely is) Jessy went on to bemoan the paltry salary her account made. The not so small sum of $500,000.
