“Hi guys! This is Bermuda. Sooooo… You have been lied to by a fake person. Who literally buys that for a second? Apparently a lot of you. …Sorry, Miquela. I tried texting you, I tried calling, but you keep ignoring me. You brought this on yourself, girl ?. Leave me a comment if you care about the truth, k? ? Follow me @bermudaisbae.”

However, this brought Miquela to 1 million followers on Instagram, and was a milestone that opened a lot of doors in the influencer world, including lucrative brand deals with celebrity designers. Miquela didn’t let herself get down and kept trying to prove to people that she was a real person. And that’s exactly what Bermuda didn’t like.
