Online influencer sparks viral firestorm, says she’s ‘too pretty’ to work

Lucy Welcher, a social media influencer with nearly 20 million likes, sparked controversy with a TikTok post claiming she’s “too pretty” for work. In the now-deleted video, she expressed disdain for the daily grind, prompting backlash from netizens who criticized her as “shallow” and “entitled.”

Welcher’s video, posted on November 8, 2022, garnered swift condemnation for its perceived laziness and arrogance. Users rebuked her for equating employment with appearance, calling her out for her privileged attitude.

“I do not want to work for the rest of my life. Does it look like I want to get up at 6 a.m. every f**king day for the next 60 years? No! I’m too pretty for that!” she said in the nine-second clip.

Viewers were quick to offer their comments, many slamming the content creator for being “lazy” and “entitled.”

“Boy I wish I had your confidence, the same confidence to feel like I’m better looking than I actually am. God you people are so shallow and in love with yourselves,” writes one TikToker.
