Oilvia Attwood has slammed fellow influencers for travelling to the likes of Dubai and Barbados and claiming it is for work purposes, telling her followers: “People are losing their family members daily”.
Poking fun at influencers who are currently abroad and say they are “working”, Olivia said on her Instagram Stories: “Being an influencer is actually really hard and I can’t create content for you guys here so I’m going to have to go on holiday, but don’t worry I will keep referring to it.”
The Love Island star, who was speaking from her Manchester home which she shares with her footballer fiancé Bradley Dack, continued: “It’s the constant: ‘I’m working, not on holiday’ shout.

“There is a difference between being able to earn money from wherever you are than being on holiday for work.
“Whenever I go on holiday I will post content which I can monetise but I’m still on holiday.
“I don’t go: ‘Me and Brad had them most amazing week in Portugal but don’t worry I was flat out working’. You just sound so stupid.“
Fellow Love Island star Laura Anderson is one of many influencers who have received a backlash for spending lockdown in Dubai as well as Amber Gill, Kaz Crossley and many more.
Olivia also criticised reality stars and influencers who have suggested that everyone is in the same boat.
She said: “And on top of that you’ve got the ones going: ‘We’re all in this together. This is our struggle.’ No it’s not, you’re on holiday and to be fair I don’t f*****g blame you.

“If this goes on for another six months I’m not going to say I wouldn’t potentially be tempted to take a trip because I probably f*****g would but…”
Urging influencers to be honest, the 29 year old added: “I just feel it’s giving a whole load of people a bad reputation when actually some people have just gone away and put their hands up and said they’ve gone on holiday.
“But some things I’ve seen in the last 24 hours, people legit on their Stories going, ‘You don’t know how hard it is to be an influencer.’
“People are losing their family members daily, people can’t pay their rent, people’s lifelong businesses they’ve worked their f******g b*****ks off for are crumbling around them and you’re on your Story on the beach telling us we don’t know how hard it is.“
Finishing her rant Olivia concluded by saying: “Right that’s it from me. And look if I decide to bail out of this s**t show in a few months, don’t all hate on me.
“I’m not going to say I’m never going away again but I’m not going to tell you I’m going for work, I’m just going to be honest.”
