Instagram Influencer @Arii learned a harsh lesson in online economics when she failed to sell a minimum of 36 t-shirts to her followers… despite having 2.6 million of them.
Arii, whose real name is Arianna Renee, decided to launch her own clothing line, ERA, with an initial drop of T-shirts.
The Miami-based influencer said she had been told by the company producing the brand that she needed to sell at least 36 T-shirts from the first run of products in order for the line to be continued, but Renee didn’t hit the target.
Renee has now deleted the Instagram post where she explained what happened, but not before countless people managed to screengrab it.
In the caption, she explained that she “knew it was gonna be hard,” but that she “was getting such good feedback that people loved it and were gonna buy it.”
“No one has kept their word so now the company won’t be able to send out the orders to people who actually bought s— and it breaks my heart,"
“The people I thought who would support me, really didn’t nor did they share any of my posts (all I asked for), sounds b—– but like no shade to anyone, I’ve supported everyone’s music or whatever they’ve asked for my support on and I couldn’t even get it in return.”
She explained that the people who had ordered a T-shirt would be refunded.
The youngster continued: “‘m not asking for sympathy. i’m just sharing my story, i’ve always kept it real with my followers & i wasn’t gonna lie about this.
“i’ve studied everyone’s responses & advice, i will take this summer to work harder & learn more. this isn’t the end, i won’t let this hate & laughter get to me!”
