THE blogger who broke down in tears after her Instagram was deleted revealed she called the police as it “felt like someone murdered me”.
Jessy Taylor, 21, from Florida, recorded herself having a meltdown after her social media channel was taken down and she was left sobbing that she's "nothing without [her] followers".
At the time she said a nine to five job wasn’t for her and it was her only source of income – but now she’s revealed she called the police over the matter.
She told Insider: "I felt like it was a homicide. Like somebody murdered me and then went online to say, 'I murdered this girl.'
"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."
Jessy claims she has made $500,000 (£382,000) from her Instagram page, which had over 100,000 followers, but says the money didn’t last long.
She explained: “You go to the Gucci store a few times, you pay a couple of months of rent, I'm not rich like I used to be."
Jessy admitted that having a big following gave her an ego boost, and she used to mainly post bikini shots on her old Instagram.
She said: “I turned into a mean person when I had my account. If people would try it with me, I'd use it to say, 'You need to understand who the f— you're talking to.'"
IM NOTHING WITHOUT MY ________? (FILL IN THE BLANK)

The distraught blogger said she had been editing a video for her 3,900 followers on YouTube, when she noticed her Instagram had vanished.
Speaking through tears, she said on her video: "Hi guys, I'm in the middle of editing and my Instagram got deleted.
"I'm trying to get it back, I'm calling everybody I can and I don't know why it's not working out for me.
"… I'm nothing without my following, I am nothing without my following.
"And when people try to hate on me or report me I'm literally trying to be a f***ing better person.
"I want to say to everybody that's reporting me – think twice because you're ruining my life, because I make all of my money online, all of it and I don't want to lose that.
"I know people like to see me be down and be like them and the ninety per centers – the people who work 9-5 – that is not me, I am in LA to not be like that.
"I've worked so f***ing hard to get to where I'm at and for that to get taken from me is the worst feeling in the world."
While it's not clear why Jessy's Instagram was deleted, or why she was being reported, the blogger went on to ask others to "imagine themselves in [her] shoes".
She explained she used to "work as a prostitute" and at McDonalds, before she managed to make her income online.
"I was a f***ing prostitute… I don't do that anymore because I make all my money online.
"I don't want to go back to that life.
"… What some of you guys have to realise is I have no skills, I'm twenty-f***ing-thousand dollars in debt from college so I can't even go to college if I wanted to.
"I used to work at f***ing McDonalds before I did YouTube, Instagram, before I had 100,000 followers, before I had everything in my life I was a f***ing loser.
"I'm not saying there's anything wrong with working at McDonalds because I worked there but I don't want to go back to that life.
"I have no job qualifications, I could never work a normal job."
Posting the video on YouTube, many viewers found it difficult to sympathise.
Several users called her "pathetic" while another called it a "prime example of addiction to social media".
Others emphasised, however, with one person commenting: "Stop all the negativity.
"She's trying to get rid of her past and you people won't let her do that.”
Jessy has since set up a new Instagram account, which currently has over 14,000 followers.
