Online influencer triggers widespread debate by claiming she’s ‘too pretty’ to work

249

A TikTok influencer named Lucy Welcher sparked quite the buzz online with a playful post suggesting she’s “too pretty” to dive into the daily work routine.

This comment, meant in jest, led some to call her “shallow” and “entitled,” igniting a heated conversation about beauty and employment.

Lucy, known for her lighthearted clips and boasting nearly 20 million likes on the platform, found herself at the center of a viral whirlwind. In a video that shows her typical blend of humor and sass, she quipped about not wanting to join the 9-to-5 grind, all while sipping iced coffee and chatting from her car.

On November 8, 2022, the then-20-year-old influencer shared a TikTok with a caption that hinted at her distaste for the workday routine, humorously claiming her beauty exempted her from it. This sparked a flurry of comments from viewers, some admiring her confidence, while others criticized her for what they perceived as laziness or entitlement.

Faced with backlash, Lucy removed the controversial video, later explaining in a follow-up post that her initial comment was meant as a joke. She addressed the misconceptions floating around about her, clarifying she doesn’t own luxury cars, make $100,000 a year, nor lives in a mansion—contrary to what some stories suggested. Instead, she shared a laugh about her Canadian roots and the exaggerated state of her living situation.
