An Instagram influencer named Priyam Joshi who enjoys 30 k plus followers in the photo/video posting social media platform, recently uploaded a post in her timeline asking people to spread positivity amidst this COVID 19 situation. She wanted her fellow influencers to stop posting about COVID 19 beds, help, injections and anything related to it.

“Honestly so sick of this virus. Influencers out there can you pls pls pls just stop posting about covid beds & help & injections & What not related to it. We collectively need a break from this. Let’s talk about the other good & lively stuff going around in the world . Not of dying people. We need to mentally get out of this” she wrote in her post by adding a mirror selfie of herself.

Don’t share SOS calls because the cute influencer is sick of it. I pray for a day when people realise how they’ve turned absolutely irrelevant people into mini celebs. pic.twitter.com/rsucr1ZMuV— Pakchikpak Raja Babu (@HaramiParindey) April 24, 2021

Reacting to these comments in social media, Priyam Joshi released a clarification video seeking an apology. “I would like to start this with an apology to whoever it may offended because that wasn’t really my intention. I just wanted to spread some positive vibes among this major pandemic.” she said and went to describe how she feels about the demise of her grandmother who died two weeks ago.
“My own grand mother died two weeks ago and it was really really tragic. I was devastated because I was really close to her. But rather than psyching in sadness, I am trying to accept the reality as it is. I am trying to maintain as much as stability and positivity I can. It’s like I am being blamed for the extension of humanity. You need to understand that death is inevitable. It comes no matter what.” She said.
