Social media star and former Love Island contestant Laura Anderson recently sparked anger when she complained about the “hard reality” of being an influencer.
Although she didn’t name Laura, Olivia has hit out at social media stars, saying their attitude is a “tone-deaf” way to live.
Olivia also raged that the pandemic wasn’t an inappropriate time to bring up the topic when front line workers are “zipping up bodybags”.
The reality TV star also insisting that not all Love Island stars are “disillusioned”.
She told Grazia: “Influencers and Love Islanders get such a bad reputation, it really grinds my gears.
“I think we’re not all completely disillusioned, some of us are living in the real world. But we all get tarred with the same brush, which is frustrating.”
Olivia also discussed how being an influencer is not as it always seems.
She said: “There is an interesting conversation to educate younger generations that being an influencer, or being on TV, is not all it’s cracked up to be.”
Olivia also discussed comparing the hardships of influencers to those of frontline workers.
She added: “But it’s just so unbelievably tone-deaf to think that now would be an appropriate time to raise that topic, when your hard day is creating content that might get nasty comments and someone else’s hard day is a 12-hour shift, zipping up body bags at the end of it.”
Olivia also took to Instagram earlier in the week to hit out at influencers complaining about their “hard” lives when people are “losing family members and struggling to pay rent”.
The bombshell raged: “Some things I’ve seen legit over the past 24 hours are people on their stories saying how ‘hard’ it is.
“People are losing their family members daily. They can’t pay rent and their businesses they’ve worked their f***ing b******s off for are crumbling around them and you’re on the beach telling us ‘you don’t know how hard it is’.”
Olivia then told how if she went away to work she would be acting differently.
She said: “I’m not saying I won’t be going away, but I won’t be telling you I’m going for work.
“I’ll just be honest because this country sucks f***ing d*** and I’m out.”
She also blasted social media influencers calling their trips abroad “work”.
She said: “Being an influencer is actually really hard and I can’t create content for you guys here, so I am going to have to go on holiday, but don’t worry I will keep referring to it as ‘work’.”
