An Instagram influencer has filmed herself in an on-screen breakdown after her account was banned.

Jessy Taylor, also known as @jessytaylorduh, had a following of 113,000 before her account was deleted due to multiple people reporting it as spam.

Taylor is seen hysterically crying in the video, which she uploaded to YouTube, telling her followers that she is "nothing" without them.

"I just want to say to everybody that's been reporting me, think twice, because you're ruining my life," she sobs.

"I've worked so hard to get where I'm at for that to get taken from me is the worst f**king thing in the world."

Taylor said before she made her money through social media, she worked as a sex worker - but she has no interest in returning to that line of work.

"I don't want to go back to that life," she told the camera.

Many YouTube commenters have been scathing of Taylor's breakdown, saying it's indicative of the modern era.

"Imagine crying over a social media account," one user wrote.

Another user wrote they hope the video was "a social experiment".

Since the breakdown, Taylor was given an account from one of her fans. At this stage, she has just 1500 followers.
