A TikTok influencer claims she 'accidentally' bought a couch for USD$100,000 (AUD$159,000, £56,000) and is not handling it well.
Quenlin Blackwell posted a video of her sobbing in her car to her TikTok account earlier this onth.
As she sobbed hysterically in her car, she revealed that she entered her card details into an online bid for a couch.
The 21-year-old said that the bid was a joke and wasn't serious when she put her card information in for the purchase.
Well, in a turn of instant karma, she was charged for the ridiculously expensive sofa, which apparently sent her into a bit of a panic.
"I have to pull over right now because I’m about to f**king throw up," she said in the now-viral clip.
"I just put an offer on a couch, and I was joking. I was joking, but I put in my card information, and it just charged my f**king account. I almost crashed my car when I saw it."
She then called on her fans to donate money to her so that she could afford the expensive piece of furniture.
She sobbed: "If you have a million dollars, can you please donate? Can you please donate, please? If you have a million dollars, can you let me borrow some, please?”
The video has now been viewed 6.5 million times and was captioned: "I can't inhale."
Commenters under Blackwell's video said they did not understand why she would enter her card details if she had no intention of actually purchasing the expensive furniture piece.
One top comment said: "Girl, who puts in card info as a JOKE."
A second added: "ILY BUT WHY PUT YOUR INFO IN."
A third quipped: "How do you accidentally put all of your card info in and press purchase?"
Others asked to see the obscenely expensive couch but she is yet to give up the goods on that.
In a follow up video, she continued her sobbing plea to her followers revealing she was joining OnlyFans in an attempt to make up some of the money.
"I don't want to, but I'm going to have to," adding that she also needed money for dental work and to replace a side mirror on her car.
"I don't want to do a job. I'm about to throw up because I know they didn't refund me."
Many are questioning whether the video is real or if it's a ploy to get subscriptions to her OnlyFans account.
The TikTokker sparked a similar social media storm when she claimed she lived with Diplo.
The music producer eventually released a statement on the issue, saying: "OK so I rent one of my properties to Quenlin.
He added: "Her social media is sarcastic and chaotic and I can see you can get a twisted idea but there is nothing but a friendship between us."
Maybe this couch drama is another sarcastic post.
