A young British woman has been slammed with negativity after buying her first home mortgage-free. 

The 21-year-old TikTok influencer has been blasted with negative comments after sharing the news. 

"People were saying that I was bragging, showing off," Katylee Bailey told Fox News. 

"The hate just got worse and worse and worse to the point where I felt guilty for doing such a big accomplishment within my life.

"I did such a big thing and people still decided that they wanted to bring me down."

The video showed Bailey jumping up and down with a fake champagne bottle that blasted confetti. 

"Biggest achievement of my life. Here's to the next chapter," the caption of the post read. 

Some viewers celebrated her success, while others said the young TikToker was bragging as many struggle to make ends meet. 

"It's so upsetting to see this," one user commented. 

"Like paramedics who save lives 12 hours a day five to seven hours a week and they still can't afford heating," another said. 

Another added: "I can't even buy myself a dairy milk bar from co-op." 

Others accused the TikTok influencer of not having a real job, Bailey said. 

"I think people forget that even though social media isn't a 9 to 5, there's still so many things that come with social media," Bailey told Fox News.  

"I still have to pay the tax. I still have to do everything. I have to do my accounts just like a business would."

Bailey said she had to borrow money from friends to get food before raking in the money on TikTok. 

"Social media has opened so many doors for me, opportunities I never thought that I'd be able to have," she said. "I've been able to help my family, help my friends.

"I've been able to let them experience it with me."

Bailey said the negative commentary about buying her first home initially stopped her from moving in. 

"I struggled, and for a long time I didn't actually move into the house just because I felt such a heavy weight on my shoulder," Bailey admitted. "I was scared with all the hate." 

Bailey has since moved into her house and continues to share the process with her TikTok audience.
