Mikayla Nogueira’s TikTok video reappears
The TikTok star has sparked controversy among social media users over a video detailing what her day as a content creator looks like before telling her followers to “try to be an influencer for a day.”
“Every day, I get up at six in the morning,” she said in the video (via Pop Crush). I spend about five to six hours shooting three to four video content and then spend a few hours editing that video content. Then I have to work on my other social media profiles, whatever they are.

TikTok star stirs controversy
Michaela’s comments sparked quite a controversy on social media, with many people taking to Twitter and TikTok to discuss her comments.
One person chirp: “It is very disappointing to see Micaela Nogueira become an influencer who is as far removed from reality as the rest of us. Complaining about the difficulty of her work at a time when most of us make enough money, some people work more than 12 hours and still cannot pay Invoices “.
another one hung: “I remember when Mikayla Nogueira was just starting to get kind of popular on TikTok I used to love watching her videos as I would watch every video and seeing how bad her fall was is really sad for me.”
another person added: “This Michaela Nogueira chisme had me on the edge of my seat. I can only imagine how her response/apology would be.”
Others defended the influencer and invited people for hateful comments, especially in the comments section of Mikayla’s TikTok videos.
“People look at the tip of the iceberg but forget the hard work and struggle it took for a person to get there. Especially for someone who worked in retail for years and didn’t have a family fortune like most celebrities and influencers,” one Twitter user Wrote.
another one knock in: “Very true and half of the people attacking her haven’t even seen the whole video. Only the part she says it’s 5:19…. It started at 6 in the morning. Everyone leaves this out lol.”
One TikTok user commented on Mikayla’s latest video: “Just because your haters are louder than those of us who support you doesn’t mean they’re right. Keep your cool head.”
“People are really cruel. That’s all I’m going to say. I love you Michaela,” added another person under the same video.
